Fantastic food at a great price!

Visited San Carbon with my fiancé, future father in-law and his partner. They are all locals so I pretty much went wherever I was told! They all like this restaurant so I figured I was in for a treat! First impressions were very good, the location of the restaurant, perched on the side of the... read more

We got 2 excellent pieces of meat, perfectly cooked. With a bottle of wine and 2 desserts, we paid 180 000 pesos, but it worth it. They have a large menu of wines and meat. Delicioso !

While out walking around we saw a restaurant our driver had passed earlier this afternoon…San Carbon Parrilla Bar and Grill. We decided to eat dinner here… This place can easily seat 350 guest…easily! We were shocked by the number of “reserved” signs we saw on the tables as we were being seated by the hostess. We chose outside seating (they... More

I love going to San Carbon. They have all different cuts of meat. I also enjoy the appetizers. great service, wine selection and best of all the atmosphere. Most nights they have a live band playing all of your favorites in english and spanish. Highly recommended whether you are local or visiting.

This place has medium food; even though the service was good, the quality of the food was very average; we ordered the Parrillada and the Chorizo was very greasy the meat had many tendons and the chicken not very flavorful; this was oir first and probably last visit to this restaurant; the parking was very accessible and no reservations required.

This is a traditional Medellin restaurant. The restaurant itself is open-air under a thatched-roof structure, We were there during the celebration of International Woman's Day and table fireworks as well as a dessert were provided. The trio providing the music for the evening were wonderful (and also traditional) and my steak was awesome! The place was packed on a Friday... More

Great food and service, I ordered the chicharrones and Angus NY Strip and Tri-Tip, great desserts and excellent coffee. They sell the coffee in bean form by the pound for about $ 12 per pound, well worth it...I bought 10 lbs to share with family and friends. Great ambience, peaceful. Enjoy !!

I was invited with some friends and we had an awesome time. To start, the live music was great, and unexpected on a Tuesday evening. The service was super attentive and kind. And the food, was just delicious and fresh!!!! Although price is higher than other places, it is well worth it.

The restaurant is located in a nice neighborhood. The food is good, specially the meat. They have a salad bar with several options.
