Start with one of their craft cocktails while you peruse the menu. That menu is worth time to digest as it offers amazing dishes that span local cuisine to Asian to European. No matter what you choose, you cannot go wrong. The wines are well...More

Very nice atmosphere, nice menu with great appetizers and unusual main dishes. Good service. Very good wine list. Good desserts. Ask to be seated in the main floor, bottom floor is not as nice. Nice experience all together.

Jeans should be fine. None of Medellin's top restaurants that I know of even require a coat for the men (much less coat and tie).

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.
