I made a reservation on line and I called to confirm it as well. However, when we arrived at our reservation time lo and behold they could not find our names. They did find a seat for us downstairs but this was not a great start to our meal. The food was great and the service good too. However, strangely... More

This is a superb restaurant in the Poblado district of Medellin, but away from the noisy bars. The service was excellent and there is a huge variety to choose from. While it is a little pricier for Medellin, I would agree with most reviewers that this was well worth it. Expect to pay quadruple in a London restaurant for this... More

Can't say enough about this place...had lunch and dinner this trip...duck, meat and seafood were very original as well as tasty. Wish we could get this quality and flavor in the states. Yet one more reason MDE is my favorite South American destination. The 5 chocolate dessert was spectacular.

Carmen has an amazing menu but being my first time I chose the 7 course chef option All dishes amazing and paired perfectly with local South American and European selections available here in Medellin Carmen the owner stopped by and she is a doll and not the pompous pretentious owner but a hands on team player. Bravo!

Every course was wonderful! Had the Tacos Coreanos as an appetizer, Solomito de Res, and Banana Banano for dessert. Wonderful Meal. The mission cocktail was amazing!!! I will definitely come back when I'm in Medellin again.

Really cool relaxed atmosphere with great cocktails. Had Valentines Day set menu and everything was amazing. I think the best ceviche appetizer and best pork dish I have ever had in my life. Carmen greeted us in person and was really sweet. Waiters all totally bi-lingual and service was A+. I would not have changed a thing. Try this place... More

We took the 5-course chef's menu with matching wines and never regretted it. Great food, interesting dishes (pineapple soup) and lovely staff. All the plates were perfectly made up and tasted alike.

I honestly have a hard time finding any flaws because I was left in awe. The restaurant is stunning. All of the lush greenery that's woven throughout the restaurant truly beautifies the space. It's like a secret garden but in a dining space. Loved it. The 5-course chef's tasting was a steal given the quality. Our table got a round... More

We had the seven course tasters menu. It was simply heavenly. Everything was so delicious and the wines fit very well with the food. Very professional and kind personnel, nice environment (we sat downstairs next to the garden). Before dinner we tried a cocktail, they were some of the best we ever tasted, so refined. Worth the money!
