We ordered burgers, which tasted okay, but were very small and had no salad in the burger, not-good bread-buns that were a bit sweet and like the kind of bread you get in a cheap panaderia there - and came with only a tiny tiny amount of yukka chips on the side (which were kind of cold and hard) - not at all worth the money as they were also very expensive for Bogota (COP11000 for small and I think COP/15 or14000 for large- both sizes were way too small/sparse for the price in my opinion). We also odered a side dish of potato chips, which COL4000 for a super tiny portion of packet-style crisps, so don't bother with their side dishes. They mostly do simple burgers and a few snacks.
They have on tap sevaral 'craft' beers, ask to taste them first because some of them are watery and flavourless. The beer is also quite expensive.
The staff are very sweet and friendly, but a bit disorganised - especially the kitchen as when we asked about our order after 45 minutes waiting, they had to take the order again as they lost it.
It's a cosy place though, well decorated and the lighting and layout of space has a lovely atmosphere about it.
I'd recommend just coming here for drinks, definietly not for the food as it's not great and is WAY too expensive for what you get - there are LOADS of other great eating options in the neighbourhood (inlcuding better burger places).

I usually visit this place but It’s the first time that I write a review about the great burgers, beers, appetizers and staff.
Everything is good there, the food tastes great, their craft beers are pretty good and the staff including the owners are very friendly and attentive.

Happy hour at El Mono is a treat. Located in very cool part of town with a flowing hipster crowds, the home brew is excellent, the environment very quaint, service with a smile and did I mention the great beer?

For 3 of us the burgers were uncooked and the bread totally hard.

We felt sick after this place.

A great bar with a good concept, tasty Craft Beer, nice snacks and very stylish interior. Also the owner is really nice and enjoys what he does. We loved it and enjoyed it very much. A Must when in Bogota!
