I was stunned by the size of the burgers. But shocked by the great flavour. My fiance had the burger with mushroom sauce, a combination not know in Australia. It too was delicious if not a little messy. Very relaxed ambiance, and diverse menu.

Excellent food and service. Come with an empty stomach, the food sizes are out of control. Prices are cheap considering the amount of food you get.

This is one of my favourites places for eating meat. Service is great and the place is just fabulous. Ask for the loom and you will get a yummy surprise.

I am a meat lover. I have been fortunate enough to have been to many restaurants claiming to serve great steaks and burgers in several continents. Galapago Campestre is up there with the best. Don't expect a beef wellington or some sort of fancy dish. Here you can choose from a few different cuts which can be prepared in a... More

If you want to enjoy a nice meal in a nice, green and relaxing context, this is the place! On weekends is very full and you might have to queue a bit, but the waiting is soon compensated. The meat is excellent, the portions are generous and if you really want to eat like a Colombian you can accompany your... More

Even if you ask for a "half" portion it would be HUGE but delicious. The "patacón" was the very best of our lunch.

I ate meat in many restaurants in Colombia. This is one of the best!!! They serve way large portions, I would recommend share it. My Lomo was one of the best considering all other steak restaurants in this region. Prices are vert good compare to what they serve.

The portions were huge and definitely can be shared to enjoy more choices of dishes. The ribs were great and the steak was very good. We ordered a second portion of chorizos since they were so good. The hamburger was very large and looked even bigger since it was quite wide (but not very thick). The side dishes were also... More

We ate here with friends who live in the area and said this is their favorite place to eat. Most of us had their hamburgers which are the largest burgers I have ever seen in a restaurant. They aren't just huge, they were actually very good too. If you are not a big eater you can easily split one between... More
