I've been visiting this restaurant for at least 6 years, and it is always a great pleasure to enjoy Chef Juanma Barrientos' cuisine. This time, the restaurant offered a gorgeous experience of the Colombian tastes paired with a delicate and delicious selection of French wines. Service will always be the best in the city. This is an extraordinary experience. Reservations... More

The restaurant in itself is very nice in the Poblado area of Medellin. It serves a very different version and interpretation of traditional Colombian food through a fusion of special effects, sensorial experiences that stimulate more than just the palate and an interesting concept of each and every waiter available in the restaurant actually taking turns to serve at the...

This is a thematic restaurant, located in the middle of Medellin. All the restaurant is dedicated to you immediately you arrive on it. Very good food, good wines and perfect attention to details.

We had the 13 course tasting menu with wine pairings - a must have. All the dishes and wines were superb. Everyone spoke English and Spanish - rare in Medellín for any restaurant. The Chef greeted us as well for one of the main courses, nice personal touch. Contemporary and unique experience. Some people may say some of it is... More

Fusion restaurant says it all. All the senses are included; from washing hands in vanilla extract and oils to boiling coffee at the table at the end. Pricey but a great treat. Reservations are a must.

We had the 13-course menu with wine pairing. The only thing I can say that it was an amazing experience. Every course was perfect. Only comment I can make is that the staff did not speak English that well. It would have been nice to get more understandable information of the various courses.

Highly staged experience if you want to impress by spending for a high priced dinner. This may be the place for you. Otherwise, save your money.

Food and experience were very good, we had 12 courses and 11 were amazing. Service was also excellent. Only thing was lighting of the table was a little bad, couldn't see well what we were eating. And decoration could also have been better.
