Terrible family meal. Overpriced, poor service and mediocre food. They forgot one of the starters so the rest of the party had almost finished theirs by the time the missing starter arrived. We ordered a Merlot wine but when we started to drink it, it...More

We were very excited about dining here, as this restaurant seems to be quite famous in Medellín. However, we were thoroughly disappointed. 1) Ambiance: We were crammed into a small room with ten other people; we were all seating so close to each other that...More

In Colombia mil means thousand - as a general rule of thumb divide by 3,000 - therefore, a 100,000 col pesos dish would be about $33 USD

The outside area downstairs is really beautiful ( patio ) or any of the tables in downstairs area are nice too. The patio gives you the most privacy. If I'm dining with people that's my first choice. If I'm dining alone... More
