My boyfriend and I went for dinner on a Friday evening and were extremely happy with our experience. Luckily a table was free for us straight away as we hadn't booked. The restaurant was lively and had a good ambiance. Our waiter, Sebastian was kind and friendly and gave us good advice on our choices. Each dish we had was delicious. My boyfriend had the ribs which he thought were very meaty and had a tasty sauce. I had the pulled pork salad which was up there with the best salads I've had. We went with Sebastian's dessert recommendations and they were both great too. Fab evening! :)

Located in Laureles, this restaurant has the best ribs in town. We also tried the salmon and the tuna, andnit was amazing.

I had lunch with my family at Barbaro and we couldnt be happier with the food and service.

Loved it!

Ps: it is on a second floor- keep that in mind in case you have trouble taking the stairs.

We had a delicious birthday celebration at Barbaro and really enjoyed the meal. Prices are likely on a bit of the higher end for Medellin, but overall totally affordable for delicious food and drinks.

This place has it all, great service, great food, great pricing, great environment! Unlike a lot of the restaurants here in Medellin, the music was background music as opposed to the normal blaring, need to shout or not talk at all kind you normally find. Great place to take a date.
