Walking around Parque Lleras in the late afternoon, we were tempted by the 3 X 1 cocktail special and the great location overlooking the park. We ended up staying for dinner, and were not disappointed. We had the chicharron, punta de anca and cazuela de mariscos. Everything was tasty, but a bit on the expensive side and the service was...

Came here with a few friends as one of our first meals of Medellin. The staff was pretty good. Food took a little longer to come out but hey we are in South American and not NYC. The steak came out well done when I asked for it to be medium rare. They took it back to fix it and... More

This is a really good place for large parties to celebrate special occasions. Especially if you are a meat lover and enjoy a little dancing, this is a good place to check out. The prices are a tad high in comparison to local standards but I believe it is on purpose to keep out undesirables. I went here with 5... 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.
