Excellent French food

Very good option for French food with local Colombian touches. You have to wait for 30 minutes because it's all made upon your order but it is worth the wait.

Had to wait over two hours for an appetiser, they did apologize, but never even thought about doing something for us. Service is slow, and they could care less for customers, typical fare and overpriced coffee. Don't bother.

Although it was pouring cats and dogs outside, the sunshine was in the kitchen. This was our tenth visit to Cafe le Gris. the chef is predictably good in keeping the food delicious. I would recommend to go for the beef medallions (rare or medium, if you will) while the ceviche is a must have. The service is very professional... More

I find this one of the best restaurants in Medellin. Mediterranean food so lots of fish and waiters are friendly. Reasonable prices (30.000-50.000 for the dinner) and a winecard. It is situated near the entrance of Shopping Mall Oviedo in Poblado. We go there regularly.

You may be put off by the location of this place, perched al fresco in the main entrance of the Oviedo Shopping Centre. But go in, sit down and you wouldn't notice the surroundings. This place is excellent all round - the service and the food. We passed this place a number of times during our shopping expeditions and it... More

This restaurant is great for all occasions. This time I went solo and it was equally good. Loved the Salmon! and the glass of Rosé. Salad bar was included with the meal although I did not go for it (nothing wrong with it just was not in the mood). Every table is a good table. Service was good. This restaurant... More

I had a Veracruz-style fish here, and a glass of Malbec. Both were good, and the service was fine. I think the salad bar may be included in a dinner order.

Good but not great on both accounts. The service was very nice, cordial, and efficient. The layout of the restaurant is such that you can see your waiter and maintain eye contact with him throughout your meal. Overall I would say the service was better than the food. I had a filet mignon, the most expensive beef on the menu... More

This place is located on the first floor of the very popular Oviedo Mall. We have visited Medellin numerous times and every time we pass by it is always very full so this time we decided to try It out. Now I understand why it is always full because the food is excellent and it has a wonderful atmosphere. Everything... More
