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?

We were craving some traditional American food after enjoying traditional Columbian food for a month. The desire was satisfied at Gringo Mikes with pancakes with maple syrup and a giant blue cheese bacon burger. Good mint lemonade. Good service and reasonable price. Not crazy about their mojito.

La Mansion de Sam y Sam's Gastro PUB

Sam’s Pub or Steakhouse has established itself as one of San Gil’s top restaurant, specializing in typical colombian lunch, BBQ Ribs, Steaks, hamburgers, and more, socializing with new friends. A superb selection of latin music, beautiful colonial decor, and other artwork creates a superb atmosphere for conversing with old friends or meeting new ones.

Reviewed By Col_Buendia - Bogota, Colombia

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 an achievement in this country where the default addition of cilantro and ají to nearly everything makes for a flavour burst, but not here). The vegetarian version of the menu of the day was the same meal minus the meat - not so much as a suggestion of a fries egg as a substitute! The lentil burger didn't even manage to include salt and pepper in its ingredients, and it's hard to imagine a self-respecting "gastro" pub that would serve you a burger without French fries included in, but no, not in Sam's. Given that the chalkboard at the entrance is in English and boasts of its prices in USD, it's clear their target market are foreign tourists. If you're looking for something reassuringly familiar on your way through San Gil, Sam's might keep you happy. It didn't manage it for us.

Reviewed By Chrysma - New York

San Gil is a very laid back town-packed with extreme sports activities and many casual restaurants to eat at. In the midst of all these, there is a great restaurant that we were told some locals go to for very special occasions (not all because it is definitely pricey). The place is very simple / modern and atop a hill so you get a great view. The food was amazing. Their specialty is seafood and everything was great from appetizer to dessert. The prices are definitely up there but if you are looking for a little bit of an upscale experience or celebrating a special moment - romantic or otherwise, you can definitely go here.

Tacos & Cuates

Tacos & Cuates, the very best. We're a restaurant which offers authentic Mexican food. We are recognized for serving original dishes of true Mexican cuisine, prepared with fresh, authentic ingredients. We make every effort to have a unique interior atmosphere, one that represents Mexico and all its splendor. Tacos & Cuates, the very best, is a tribute to Mexican culture. We're just a small piece of Mexico located in San Gil.

Reviewed By jugodu - Bogota, Colombia

As a vegetarian I often have a rough time finding food while traveling and my sister (non-veg) wanted mexican food, so we went to this restaurant and they have a really nice environment, mexican music, decoration and people, and they allow you to take pictures wearing their masks and hats. Food was really nice and tasty, I asked for a vegetarian burrito one day and next day for a kind of Sandwich and both were awesome. My sister asked for Tacos and something else, and she was also happy with her choice.
In brief, one of the best restaurants I visited in San Gil.
