We had a wonderful time at Gringo's. Recommended by all guidebooks and TA we had to try and we were delighted by the results. Massive burgers, juicy meat, tasty sauce, excellent bun, delicious fries (we are from Belgium so we know the good stuff) Quesadilla is also a great option: delicate and very tasty as well. Cocktails are good too... More

Visit was a pleasant change during our travels around Colombia. The portions are large so recommend sharing. Food was tasty and staff friendly.

Don´t expect to get any typical Colobian food here, but the burgers are insanely good. Mine had a juicy thick patty with smoked cheese and a slice of avocado. These things are huuuge so bring a good appetite. The atmosphere is relaxed, the way i like it. If you are in San Gil, don´t miss eating here.

We ate here three times and worked our way through the vegetarian menu .All the salads, other dishes and juices are great and the portions huge. It's in a lovely courtyard and was surprisingly empty each time we ate there. Highly reccommend it!

We came here for lunch and ordered milkshakes, a chicken burrito and a chicken pesto salad. The milkshakes were impossible to drink with a straw but tasty. The burrito was pretty big and also tasty. My salad on the other hand was just really really dry. First time in over a year of traveling that I ordered a salad in... More

Even better than in Mexico, don't miss the burritos. Very nice location in a historic building in downtown San Gil. Cons: Staff is always over-attentive, and it's not really cheap

To be honest there are so many cheaper restaurants with perfectly ok food and nice balcons facing the main square, that it's hard to justify the prices of this establishment. Food was nice though and no other complaints.

I went to #thepatioburger in #barichara a night before I came here. And I was not completely satisfied with the burger there. Mike sent me an email straight away. He wanted to know what was wrong. I met him at this place in San Gil where he also has a restaurant. And he was very eager to learn what i... More

You can substitute our handmade beef burgers for chicken breast or house specialty black bean veggie burgers. We bake fresh brioche bread everyday for our burgers and sandwiches. Gourmet cinnamon rolls with cream cheese orange zest frosting melt in your mouth goodness!You won't find anything like what we offer anywhere in Colombia. Our house hot fudge brownie with creamy vanilla ice cream is made from 70% cacao dark chocolate, this rivals any brownie anywhere! Come try one of our specialty mojitos or margaritas which never disappoint! We have French press local certified coffee and fresh creative natural juices. Didn't get the info from your hostel? No problem we are so close to the main square that it is an easy find, just a half block up from the main park on Calle 12 in the Casa Lopez centro commercial!
