So I sprang for the steak last night, It is reported to be the "best steak in San Gil, maybe Colombia". I can't say one or the other without sampling many more places, but I can tell you this was one of the best tenderloin steaks I have eaten over the last 6 months here in South America, First off,...

It hard to find a decent restaurant in Colombia these days that doesn't have a high chair for a baby, but Sam's Gastro Pub unfortunately made the category, and so we had to take turns struggling one-handedly with our 13 month old baby and the food. The lunch we had was uninspiringly average: the "sopa de patacon" was flavourless (quite... More

If you plan to travel from Bogotá to Santa Marta consider 2 nights at San Gil, and no better place to stay, eat, or just hang, than La Mansion. By the way, their veggie burger is fabulous

Stayed there for three nights and had a great time. The staff was very friendly and helpful (but struggled with their English). The room was pretty small and without a window, but that's the style of the hostel. Looked very nice and clean. The streak is awesome as well.

Good meet, not to many choice but way sufficient. Good burger with vegetarian option. Burger from 10 000 to 15 000. Meat options grilled style around 20 25000. Quick service and free beers I'd you come from Sam's Vip hostal. What else?

Great service! My partner got a hamburger (she loved it) and i got the meat platter! Should have gotten the tenderloin but everything was fantastic and so professional. Made it the perfect date night to end our stay in san gil

The Service was incredibly, painfully slow that I had enough time to wonder if they forgot we were there. Having gone with a group of about 10 eventually our food came out. One meal at a time, so that by the point the last of the food came out, everyone else was done. Fries came separately. The steaks were good,... More

Most of the reviews about this place are accurate, the steaks are ok but a bit hit and miss, the service is dreadfully slow, parts of the order coming at different times. The choice is limited. The music is dire.

During my last time in San Gil I couldn't go to Sam & Sam, so this time I was really into this restaurant, so I went with a co-worker for lunch, but unfortunately they don't have menu options before 16:00, we were only offered the daily menu, which had few options for people who can't eat anything. No sugar free... More

This place does live up to its promise that it has good steaks. The best in Colombia? I am not sure about that, but they are certainly good and credit to the owners for doing something a bit different in a backwater like San Gil Ambience is also quite nice, set in a courtyard and they have an antisocial cat....
