I wouldn't go out of my way as a tourist to eat here. It's pretty much a local chain of restaurants - my friend called it an Olive Garden lol. The white wine sangria was amazing! The service was sketchy, and the overall food was ok, nothing to go crazy over.

Had the pasta and the stuffed tomato. Stuffed tomato was great. Pasta was average. My overall opinion of this chain is its a solid place to eat when you don't feel like being adventurous but also don't want to rush. They also have value options.

Portion sizes were perfect, flavours were amazing. I had the Greca salad, my friends had a Caeser salad and the ravioli all was delicious. Only thing that let them down was the Cocktails a brown mojito and an overly salty margarita. Other than that fantastic

It has nice affordable food in a very casual surrounding compare to Macaroni grill in the states. So it is crowded no great sevice good value for the money.

This was the first place I ate in Medellin. Of course we went to an Italian restaurant while in Colombia. Delicious and good people. Great area too.

I had a combination of a pork chop grilled plus spagetti with chicken plus a small salad and a soft drink. I paid less than $10 US for the whole thing, tax and tip included. Good service too. Very tasty food served in an open air setting.

this place is amazing. The menu will keep you busy and the food itself will satisfy you. there are so many things to choose from we usually have several different dishes to make sure we try it all. their combination dishes are well priced and great portions, my favorite "Obispo" is a must for me....when I visit, I do 3-4...
