Had a very tasty vegetarian Burrito. More expensive than I usually pay here but great for a treat and to get decent vegetarian food.

Loved this place. The service, food, portions and decor are spot on. After a long day of being a tourist you need some comfort food and need to be welcomed and this place hits the spot. Burgers are huge :) Salads are fab quality and quantity. A must place to eat in San Gil

If yoy look for an regular non-colombian fare, this is the place to go. It is a nice place with burgers, fried, salads etc. Also, it ain't expensive at all. The place is nice and centric. Mike is an awesome host too!

I discovered paradise today at Gringo Mike's in the form of a chicken Mexican burrito and a premium margarita. I didn't know that a simple burrito could taste that good. Not that Mike's burritos could be described as simple, far from it. The premium margarita was also mind zappingly good. Nuff said ! 5 stars. Don't miss this place if... More

This is a nice charming restaurant. Very unique setting. Staff very welcoming and attentive. Menu in English. Many desert options. It was late and we were tired. Salad was good and the drinks, well they were drinks. All good. I would return and recomend this place to everyone. I liked the style of it all.

Gringo Mike's was recommended in my Lonely Planet Colombia guide and was just a few mins walk from my accommodation so I gave it a go. Ordered the California Burger with fries. When it arrived I thought - that is one huge... More

Nice food but too much and on the expensive side Its not extraordinary , i can see why some people where upset with the owner, as he was pushing people to get out once they finish their food Cater mainly for the American clients if u are not, then you expect to be annoyed by the service

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! Visit us today and you will be glad you did, because there is nothing like Gringo Mike's in the whole country! Colombians will agree as they make up 80% of our business! Not just a Gringo hangout it is a melting pot of everyone!
