This is a good place to try out the Santanderean cuisine. The prices are high - but so is every other place that offers good quality food around here. By the way, the portions are gigantic and sharing a plate will still let you walk away full.

Beautiful steak that melts in your mouth. Other dishes like chorizo or chicharron are quite generous. Reasonable prices. Quick service. I would definitely recommend it.

This restaurant is all about meats. Don't expect anything fancy. The location is very traditional in a reformed house to serve as a restaurant. The meat is really good. I got the chicken pincho and chicken breast. Huge plates. The yuca is amazing with the traditional hot sauce.

Excellent food fresh and cooked to order. The Yucca fries were awesome. The Arepas were very fresh. The meat comes in gigantic portions. One of my favorite restaurants in Colombia!
