Great presentation but not very good

We thought the menu was good & reasonable. Unfortunately the food was not very good. We ordered the pasta frutti de mar. The pasta & homemade tomato sauce was very good. The fish was very poor. The mussels & the calamari were decent but the shrimp, scallops , crab claws, & fish were poor quality... read more

While the view over an all-happening square is great, the food is not that good. Pasta was overlooked, the anti-pasta...the strangest bruschetta I've ever seen, a do-it-yourself effort, highlighted (not the word) by an large onion shaped lump of cheese. Suggest you go here for drinks only!

I found this a depressing area to visit with lots of tacky bars and restaurants. The only one that seemed at all attractive from outside was Lucia - almost the only place we saw which didn't have football on a big screen - and we were not disappointed. Its view overlooking the square is good if you can ignore the... More

This restaurant is adorable! Gorgeous ambiance! We ordered a nice bottle of wine and enjoyed the live band that wasn't too loud just fitting for the mood. The menu and food looks delicious unfortunately it just fell flat. Not much flavor and just not very good. Go for drinks and enjoy the beauty and you'll be happy you did!

Great location (at the corner of Parque Lleras), excellent food, and nice staff. What I didn't like was that a band was playing American music, mostly country, and it was very loud. This restaurant would be much better if it featured bands playing Colombian music, especially boleros or any other easy-to-listen-to kind of music. The atmosphere here is elegant and... More

Caffè latte is a coffee-based drink made from espresso and steamed milk. It consists of one-third espresso, two-thirds heated milk and about 1cm of foam. .....what i get served is coffee with some milk poured on top. then the waiter tries and tells me that is what a latte is. he was rude about the whole issue and not very...

The food was excellent, cooked perfectly, and at a great price. the staff was professional and friendly and made sure we had a special holiday dinner in Medellin! Will surely go back when I return to this amazing... More

My husband and I just dined there tonight. It was an amazing evening; no heat lamps needed. We had a primo table in the corner outside. The service was wonderful. We enjoyed our wine (though the list is a bit pricey for South America) and the first course, Burrata. This was served with sautéed cherry tomatoes and an aged balsamic... More

Place had great food, but seriously the worst service ive ever encountered. If you are anything like me you will still go because the food is all that matters, but dont make that mistake! They had a horrible attitude and treated both me and my girl terribly. You will not get the food the way you want it and it... More
