You'll never be let down here. It is, if not thee best, then without a doubt 1 of thee best in Medellin. Think white glove 5 stars in the USA at the cost of an Applebee's.

Without a doubt the best dinning in the city. You pay for the atmosphere but it is worth it without question. Make reservations as soon as you get in town.

A must visit in Medellin if you like to eat :) Great food and amazing cocktails! We loved the beef carpaccio the best.

I write this as a single woman who went for dinner. Yes it's a lovely restaurant, and the food is probably great. But hard to try on your own. The trouble with pre-eminent restaurants is they are very popular and crowded and peraonal attention can...More

A complete journey of flavors. had the chance to taste a Matetic Corralillo again, Pinot Noir. The Grilled octopus and carpaccio were amazing, and then duck and ostrich. A beautiful place and amazing service! Thanks!

We had a very good meal at Carmen! The ingredients really shine through, except for one fish dish I had, which I thought was overly engineered but interesting all the same. The portions are quite big as we found was the norm in Colombia. I...More

WTF😱? You Can Count On This Place being closed on any three day weekend or other Colombian holiday. But don't count on the American owners to post a notice in the window or update their website. That would be too much attention to detail. A wasted cab ride across town to try to visit this establishment. I guess I'll try to learn what the storied hype is about when I get to cartajena.

Cute. phoning ahead is something I would have done if your site didn't expressly prohibit reservations of less than 48 hours advance notice.
