Ample finca paisa setting a bit classier than similar places I've visited in Medellin. Great food and service. A place you don't want to leave.

According to the waiters the restaurant is packed at lunchtime; we went for dinner and it was no problem to get seated and be waited on. We had the traditional Columbia food, which were great portions and fairly priced. Well worth a visit to see this pretty place and have local food.

Good local Colombian food, not cheap but definitely not expensive even by Colombian standards. Services was attentive, maybe even too much (my plate was taken away from me as I was still chewing on my last mouthfull). Large parking, and has live music at least once a week. Overall a good experience is you want to taste some Antioquian specialties.

From the food to the talented singers to the ambiance to the service , we were thoroughly pleased with our experience.. it is an oasis of real Colombian tradition and not to be missed .. the pork loin in tamarind sauce was a home run and fed two of us. Add one appetizer and you will be more than full.... More

Our history dates more than 30 years ago, when Hatoviejo was established in front of the 5 star Intercontinental Hotel. We wanted to provide the city with a cozy atmosphere, full with paisa culture and offer guests the best of Colombia's traditional food and cuisine (Bandeja Paisa, Ajiaco, Sancocho, Mondongo, Sudado, etc.), Complemented with other international dishes: barbecues / grills. Short after, Medellin demanded more locations to please the downtown business executives and families. 10 Years later, in the Oviedo shopping mall another location was opened. Today, all three continue in service and offer a wider menu including salads, soups, cazuelas, colombian desserts and a wide selection of wines. During this time, Hatoviejo has been a reference in the sector for its delicious food, excellent service and comfortable spaces that evoke the most traditional Colombian architecture and the paisa culture. Today, Hatoviejo is recognized as one of the top restaurants in Medellin and Colombia. Throughout the years that Hatoviejo has welcomed locals and tourists, it has received important prizes and recognitions like "Best Restaurant in Antioquia" by La Barra magazine in 2011 and the Rosa De Los Vientos prize, granted by the Colombian Tourism Journalist Association.
