I love Medellin, but it is not a 'foodie' town. Ingredients are fresh, but most places offing more than fast food are hit more than miss. I like this place and have been there several times. The meats are well prepared and tasty. Side dishes tend to be a little on the small side, but perhaps I need to leave... More

This is an excellent restaurant, in my opinion, one of the best in Medellin. Nice atmosphere, fantastic service, and great food. They also have an excellent selection of different cuts of beef. Highly recommended.

We went here because it was next to our hotel and on top of that we are hardcore meat lovers. The restaurant is quiet big and a little bit too unpersonal. But the churasco was really wonderful. Prices are high for Colombian standards but don't forget y're eatting out in 'el Poblado'.......

I had a 10K race the next day so I opted for the salad bar, which was 18.500. The options were fine. Pretty standard, though not as good as a Whole Foods salad bar. I opted for a second bowl despite not being that hungry any more and would later find out when I got the bill that they charge... More

The atmosphere inside the restaurant was very chill and the views were spectacular. A 10% tip was included which seems odd for a party of 2. It seemed the waiter really didn't try very hard as he knew a tip was coming. (In my opinion) the service was a bit slow to start and took the waiter over 15 minutes... More

We visited this place because it was very closed to our hotel (less than 5 minutes walking distance) and boy did we enjoy it. Live music, excellent location, we had a quick bit and was good. The inconvenience was that they took long to take our order, but the place was crowded, so nothing really bad. I had a coconut... More
