I have no idea what I ate...I took suggestions from the staff as to wine and Colombian food and dessert. All great, as was sitting right in the botanical gardens. They let me stay there to read my book, even during their break between lunch and dinner. nice!

Went here for lunch on recommendation of a paisa friend. The restaurant is situated in the middle of the botanical gardens surrounded by lush greenery and the restaurant itself is superbly designed with an excellent layout. Truly an aesthetically pleasing place to to spend one's afternoon. But unfortunately the food was a big let-down. My friend and I split the... More

This is such a beautiful setting in the Medellin Botanical Garden and the service and food were delightful. We shared the Ensalda In Situ -- huge, very fresh and delicious. The Hubster had the Chicken breast stuffed with raspberry sauce and I had the giat prawns -- both super yummy. We had a bottle of Chilean Sauvignon Blanc which was... More

A wonderful alternative to eating outside of el Poblado. Tranquil surroundings, excellent food, including a delicious coconut lemonade and expertly prepared pork ribs. Highly recommended.

After a morning enjoying the beautiful Botanical gardens through we would try the restaurant having seen the Trip Advisor reviews earlier and taking a look at the restaurant during our time in the gardens. It was truly wonderful - inventive choice of meals many of which use herbs and other ingredients from the gardens itself. The service was superb and... More

In the heart of the Botanic Gardens, the perfect place to lunch after touring. Wearing tee shirts and shorts we felt a little under-dressed, but no one was rude enough to point this out! We got the last available table, testimony to the restaurant's popularity among locals. The food is tasty, well presented and smoothly served. The choice of dishes... More

After a delightful hour strolling in the lovely gardens, we had a lovely leisurely lunch, very memorable. Lois had Pescado de Orquidea (they couldn’t do the Lasagna because of oven trouble). I started with “Consome Orqui” – turned out to be a very healthy bowl of thick chicken soup with lots of chicken cubes, plus bread chunks, cilantro, etc. I... More

My wife and I spent an afternoon in the botanical gardens of Medellin. Our friends made a reservation for lunch at "In Situ" the restaurant on Patio de las Azaleas. The menu includes a broad range of gourmet meat, poultry and fish dishes. In my opinion, the quality of the food is very good, the quantity on the stingy side... More

In situ is a lovely place to have lunch after strolling the gardens. The garden juice was delicious and the salads were fresh with a variety of ingredients. The salmon ceviche was not as good as others I had while in Colombia. Overall, we had a wonderful lunch as the service was excellent. Our waitress happily took our photos and... More

Food is generally horrible and expensive. We have tried as a group severals dishes and the best one was a pasta, but even the pasta was not of a good quality. Drinks are expensive and their selection of drinks is poor. The only good point of the restaurant is its location, right in the middle of Jardin Botanico- but so... More
