Stopped here for some meat while in Villavicencio. Got a huge platter of mixed grilled meats including mamona. Lots of beef, plantain and yucca too. Very tasty and good value.

Good food, efficient service, traditional meat without the long drive outside the city. Variety of fruit juices and desserts.

A good option in Villavicencio without having to make the long drive to eat mamona. Definitely worth a visit.

This is a very good restaurant, the best beef (mamona) we ate during our stay. It was full, we had to wait a little but it was worth it. Looked like most of the costumers were locals, we had a very good lunch there.

at the middle of the day when you get hungry this is a great option to refill your balley and taste the flavor of the original recipe of "mamona"; this is beef from the calf...just yummy
