I am a big fan of steakhouses. I had been here years ago and was not impressed. They have improved in that they actually have imported beef. Colombian beef is not horrible, but not nearly as good as US Angus or Prime. Colombia now has more places that serve imported beef. In years past, I guess since their meet is... More

The price is very high for the kind of food they serve. Dishes are boring, very plain, just a little baked potato with a piece of meat. Each of us had trouble getting our credit cards red as their "system" was out of commission and we waited for our bill for a long time. No excuses from their part, they... More

We went there because of all the good recommendations and were pretty disappointed. The waiter appeared arrogant as he didn't "allow" to order the men before the women, also he didn't give a damn about our bad spanish and talked much too fast and mumblingly. The baby beef steak was ok, nothing special, and the bbq ribs were not good... More

Extensive meat and variety menu, and my steak and vegetables were cooked to perfection. Great wine selection. Friendly and vibrant staff in a unique decor. Excellent live music, large group seating and intimate tables.

This is an excellent restaurant serving very good steaks. They even rustled up someone who could speak English for me. I said "I don't want any fat on my steak" she said " well don't pick that one try this one" so I did. She was right. I had probably the best steak I've had in a long time. From... More

One thing I love about Medellin is the steak. Great quality and cheap. San Carbon has great food, and great service. I loved the candy they brought with the check, so I asked where I could buy some. They brought me a small back with 20-25 pieces. (I left a nice tip).

had dinner here the first night i was in town. good food with good ambiance. not in the heart of parque llederas so quieter than the main party area. i think hindsight i would have gone in to the party center. worth a try depending how many nights you are in town. enjoy

It was the first time at this restaurant but several times in Medellin for business- great food- good ambience- this night the restaurant had live music. Prices are somewhat expensive for Latin America but the steaks and jumbo prawns were awesome! Priced just right if you are used to same product in USA. In the hill of Las Palmas- know... More
