My wife and I have been there more than 20 times. Every time has been perfect! A few other good restaurants in Medellin but Carmen is one of the best. Great food and service.

We sat at the kitchen and enjoyed the well-choreographed food preparation. Loved the ensalada Carmen, Beef Cheeks, Beef Tenderloin and 5 Chocolate dessert. My Purple Pussy gin cocktail was excellent. Our waiter was professional, smiling and attentive.More

Very good food and wine. Fantastic service and atmosphere. They could have added about 10 minutes more between each dish though. It did feel a little bit rushed.

As foodies, in a town of really good food, we have VERY high expectations of a place that charges a premium. We were at Carmen in Cartagena and it was excellent. We were actually at this one as well last year and it was good....More

Beautiful place with great atmosphere, well presented food. All dishes ordered were delicious but fish could be cooked a little less. Wine which was recommended was outstanding.
