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

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.

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
