We just simply had a perfect evening at Carmen! Food, atmosphere and service were on point. For a romantic dinner ask for a table in the patio!
I recently took my girlfriend here for her birthday. I have been here three times before hand and have never (ever) been disappointed. She had the langostinas (fresh prawns) and I had the steak special (I cant remember what it was called). Both were cooked perfectly, I have to admit I had a bit of food envy about the langostinas!...

We thought we could just wander into this restaurant on a Tuesday night and get a table... but the clipboard lady told us they were 'completely full' (in perfect English) and we could only eat at the bar. This wasn't a problem for us, but we found it strange to see almost the entire top floor empty. It took at... More
What’s a restaurant? On this favorite site of mine, which I very much appreciate, I sometimes have the impression that everywhere you can eat something can qualify as a restaurant. I can imagine that this can result in misunderstandings. In this Medellin top 20 there are different businesses which by some standards would not be considered a restaurant. This of... More
Coming from San Francisco, we wanted know the best Colombia has to offer. Many places are recommended, but there's truly only that lives up to its reputation, Carmen.

My boyfriend and I came here one night, as I've always wanted to try the #1 restaurant on TA in a city (bonus it was near our hotel). We decided to splurge on the chef's tasting menu with the wine tasting (I can't remember the price, but it was reasonable given the amount of food and wine and the quality).... More
I have already posted several of my pictures from this place on TA. I ate there 3 times over a 14 day period. They are number 1 on TA for a reason. I was amazed at the prep and service. Absolutely some of the best food I have eaten anywhere in the world. Fish, beef, caviar, octopus I did my... More
Carmen is within walking distance of many of the great hotels in the area and is in one of the best neighborhoods. The food here was OUTSTANDING. The food is a fusion of Colombian and Asian, boasting many Thai inspired dishes. The drinks are strong and good. Get outside seating to take advantage of the beautiful surroundings with garden, nice... More
GREAT!!!! Best in Medellin. If you like Chicago's ALINEA and/or TRU you will love Carmen. Creative, the ingredients were seasonal and the combinations of tastes, colors and texture were remarkable.
