Good food and service

The place is nice and even though is inside a mall, you don't hear much noise. The menu has many options to choose from. I had the Mexican Salad, it was tasty and big. The service is good and the waiters friendly. I definitively recommend this restaurant. It was my first time eating lunch here and... read more

We were invited for dinner and drinks and were very pleasantly surprised to find this elegant restaurant in the middle of a Mall. As everywhere in Medellin, the service was friendly and efficient, with no pressure to order - even though we had a lot to talk about. The meals were very well prepared and presented. Definitely it became another... More

The service started out good but ended terribly. This wasn't a case of language barrier because we spoke Spanish with them. They told us in advance that the food would take up to 35 minutes and that wasn't a big issue, but after 60 minutes we still didn't receive our appetizer... And than suddenly they brought out our main course.... More

This has several really good write ups, and finding myself at a loose end in Oviedo, I decided to give it a go. The location initially doesn't impress - open air, right in the middle of the mall. However, once you're in and seated, you really don't notice the mall. Comfortable, very clean and nice. The service was good too... More

We landed in Cafe Le Gris by accident, and couldn't be happier that we stumbled upon this place. It is situated in the center of the mall, but the atmosphere is actually quite calm once you set foot inside the restaurant. I shared the house salad and the orange-carrot soup and both were absolutely phenomenal!! I would eat them right... More

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.

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.

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
