Good meal

Posted on 04 / 07 / 2011

They serve 1 single set menu; soup, main dish, dessert for 6000 pesos. May contain milk. Serving starts at 12.

They also have fast snacks: when I visited, it were slices of pizza, hamburgers (both with milk cheese) and empanadas.

They also sell a variety of meat substitutes, a soy cheese; both for about 8000 pesos a package. Soy based yogurth is also available.

Pros: good quality, friendly waiters, healty
Cons: small servings, may have milk

Decent food

The neighborhood isn't the greatest, but during the middle of the day it's OK. The food was about average to me, but the people who work there are very nice, and they stayed open a little later than normal for me. They are closed on Sunday, but open for lunch the other six days. Probably once was enough for me but would eat there again if I were close by.

Pros: Food OK, Price

Great set lunch menu

Govindas has a nice Hare Krishna atmosphere and helpful staff that even invited us to an event while we were there. The set menu was tasty but also healthy and had good size portions, not too big but a variety of tastes and styles.
Only a few steps away from one of Bucaramangas most important plazas, so make it a stop on your sight-seeing route!

Pros: healthy , good value, friendly staff
Cons: runs out of food at 2ish, not a lot of options
