This restaurant may be on the pricey side for Medellin, but don’t let that deter you. Barbaro serves up a mean steak, and if you’re looking for a great piece of meat you’d be wrong to pass this one up. The ambiance is warm and sleek, delicious cocktails slide you into your dining experience (I highly recommend the vulcano, a cocktail topped with roasted marshmallows!). We both ordered smoked and grilled steaks, although I cannot remember the name of the cuts, at the recommendation of our consummate host who spoke English. My steak was a smaller, finer cut and my partners a larger and less fine. Mine was delicious! Absolutely no complaints. The only reason this review isn’t a 5 for us is because my partner ordered his medium rare and received his medium well and a tad chewy. All in all we enjoyed a nice evening out here.

Recommend this place for its quality meats and great atmosphere. I had the Lomito Barabaro which was a thick steak that was seasoned to perfection.

Thank Drewcu

Probably the best food I had over my repeated stays in Medellin. The meats are excellent, although a bit slow to arrive, yet the waiting is definitely worth it. It is located above a different restaurant, so do not be mistaken - take the stairway to carnivore heaven.

Just hit the top of my steak restaurants in Medellin. I had beef, which was local, not tough, and very flavorful. The side was asparagus, which was lightly steamed, and served with slivered almonds. Milady had pork rib, with a side of fried yucca. To top it off, the coffee was outstanding! This is a newly remodeled building, very well done. It is on the second floor, above an Italian place that I understand is also very good. It was immaculately clean. Five stars!
