Description: Our history dates more than 30 years ago, when Hatoviejo was established in front of the 5 star Intercontinental Hotel. We wanted to provide the city with a cozy atmosphere, full with paisa culture and offer guests the best of Colombia's traditional food and cuisine (Bandeja Paisa, Ajiaco, Sancocho, Mondongo, Sudado, etc.), Complemented with other international dishes: barbecues / grills. Short after, Medellin demanded more locations to please the downtown business executives and families. 10 Years later, in the Oviedo shopping mall another location was opened. Today, all three continue in service and offer a wider menu including salads, soups, cazuelas, colombian desserts and a wide selection of wines. During this time, Hatoviejo has been a reference in the sector for its delicious food, excellent service and comfortable spaces that evoke the most traditional Colombian architecture and the paisa culture. Today, Hatoviejo is recognized as one of the top restaurants in Medellin and Colombia. Throughout the years that Hatoviejo has welcomed locals and tourists, it has received important prizes and recognitions like "Best Restaurant in Antioquia" by La Barra magazine in 2011 and the Rosa De Los Vientos prize, granted by the Colombian Tourism Journalist Association.

Food was excellent, with a traditional Colombian menu. Everything I had was very good, especially the beans. The price was very affordable for the quality, and the restaurant has a pleasant ambience. It is unpretentious and comfortable, but classy. My only complaint is that the service was good but could've been better.

you can find a wide range of colombian dishes. The serves are nice and willing to combine different side dishes. Try to make a reservation if you want a spot at the terrace with city view.

In the last 3 years, we have eaten in this legendary Colombian restaurants. Although it's always been a solidly pleasant dining experience, never before have we enjoyed it as much as we did last June when we had guests from the US staying with us.
Haro Viejo lives up to its reputation over and over again. Their mastery in the delivery of true and authentic Colombian culinary masterpieces is is to be admired. I have eaten Aniaco for years all over Colombia. And even though this iconic Colombian dish is the jewel in the Bogotánian crown of amazing dishes, Hato Viejo could easily give them a run for their money. I can honestly say that Hato Viejo makes the best aniaco anywhere in the country.
Aside from amazing food and a great opportunity to taste all kinds of delicious Colombian foods from various regions in the country, the festive and friendly atmosphere is a joy to e peri en el. The beautiful place, which was once someone's beautiful home is one of the best attributes of this place. It's very popular among the locals, so, that says much about the authenticity of its traditional foods. The service is always impecable, and their desire to please the diners a reason why we keep coming back.
Excellent restaurant of traditional Colombian cuisine. Great value for what you get in return.

It is a great restaurant if you want to try Colombian food for the first time. This is where I tried it and fell in love with the empanadas! Nice location and ambience. Good service as well! The empanadas, chorizo and Lulo juice were my absolute favorites!
