Big, full of tourists, Mexican themed restaurant in Columbia... not usually my first choice! But! We had a fantastic bowl of guacamole that we mixed at our table and we both had a salad with chicken/beef. Very clean and HUGE servings. It was very obvious that all of the ingredients were fresh. Lots of coming and going at Parque Lleras... More

My poor waiter really gave it his all, but given how many patrons there were, he couldn't be up to snuff. The plate portion was impressive, but I found the food to be fried and not very good. Pass on this place if you get a chance.

When the waitress came to my table to take my order, the hostess came over from her spot at the restaurant entrance to help with the English/Spanish translation. Granted, the restaurant wasn't that busy, but it was one of the few times in Medellin where I felt like someone was willing to go out of his/her way to help me... More

I can't be completely certain but I have a strong feeling this is where my credit card information was stolen. I didn't lose my card but I had $2700 USD worth of fraudulent charges racked up in one day on my account in Bello, Colombia which is just outside Medellin. This occurred a week after I left the country. This... More

We waited to visit this for our last night, I wish we hadn't. We got there and the lady at the front desk sat us down and welcomed us. After this nobody came to take our orders, it is a big restaurant granted, but we were tempting to get a waiters eye and I even had my hand up to... More

After perusing the lunch options near Parque Lleras, we settled on this spot because of the greater number of patrons in relation to other restaurants. We had a salad, tacos and buffalo wings - the portions were large and the food tasty.

First you must understand that I am a Tex-Mex connoisseur and live in Dallas. I have eaten here twice on two separate trips. I really enjoy the neighborhood and the scene! Eating out on the patio in Colombia is a dream except when you want great food and good service. Please, come to Texas to learn from the best. $$$$... More

I generally don't expect too much from Tex-Mex restaurants but was pleasantly surprised by this one. Not only were the portions huge but the food tasted fresh. There was a varied menu and drinks which fully satisfied our group of 7.
