Gringo Mike's

Top choice american in San Gil

What isn't good here? In a moody, candlelit courtyard you'll find this US-UK operation thrilling homesick travelers with a surplus of American-portioned gourmet burgers, bacon-heavy sandwiches, breakfast burritos and French-press coffee. You may need a knife and fork to dismember the spicy jalapeño burger and the Mexican beef-fillet burrito.

Honorable mentions should go to the great cocktails, ample vegetarian choices (all burgers have veggie alternatives), and the spectacular mango, peanut and blue-cheese salad with prawns. Far more than a footnote are the desserts, led by the giant, freshly baked chocolate-chip cookie served hot in the pan with ice cream: all are fully justifiable if you just returned from some white-knuckle San Gil–style activity.
