Second time at Carmen (and second time in Medellin), I really like this place. The food is good, well made, inventive and rich. Hence name of review. Wine selection is good and service is inventive. Room for improvement: the espresso could have bern better

Not sure where Carmen is but she needs to come and take control of this overrated establishment. We decided to go there thinking it was a perfect location for a family dinner. First the service is slow its also lacking engagement. Pablo our careless waiter...More

I loved the atmosphere, the service, but especially the food! I did the tasting menu with pairings, which is a DEAL! After a month of trying restaurants in Medallo, this is the one that I come back to!

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
