However, we were desperate to try the traditional Cabro al Horno and Pepitoria so at the end we went there with curiosity. The place is beautiful and it has the traditional vibe of santander and santander country houses (fincas/haciendas), the staff were... More

Several years back, this was my favorite restaurant in Bucaramanga. Both the food and service has deterorated. The place is still very attractive, The food is mostly local, but it lacks the taste of the past. Prices are reasonable

This was the first restaurant we visited in Bucaramanga. My husband ordered the baby beef and I ordered the salmon. Both dishes were very good! We received excellent service.

How disappointed we were with this place. Fuled by its long reputation, this place is nothing what it used to be I suppose. The food (sobrebarriga) was dry and I was served a beef rib that was 90% bone and 2% breadcrumbs. A salad that was 95% onions. The presentation of the plate was non existing. I ended up not... More

If you like to taste the real Santanderean food this is the place to go. Goat meat is beautiful, and if you can go on weekend try a gorgeous soup called Mute. Service is really good.

The food was very tasty, I had the baby beef, it was tender and had good flavor. My family had the Mute also very good. The only thing was that some of the items on the menu like half of it were not available.
