This nice restaurant is indoor/outdoor and sits just above the level of the street and Lleras Park, overlooking both. Get a table by the railing above the street. We had breakfasts here repeatedly. The menu offers good variety. Excellent service. This is a well run, highly professional restaurant. They stop selling breakfast at 10 a.m.

Very centrally located and easy to find if you're new to the city. Quiet atmosphere was good for meeting clients. Drinks/wine selection are good. No complaints about the food specifically, just expected more from one of the most expensive restaurants in the city, especially with so many great options just blocks away.

Went out hoping for a nice meal on out last day in Medellin and were quite disapointed. The food was mediocre and not worth the price (very salty and in some cases bland). The service was probably the worst thing we encountered - very cold attitude, no greetings, no one cared to ask how the food was and neither were... More

Lucia is a bar restaurant attached to the Charlee Hotel in Medellin Colombia. It is across the street from Park Llaras in Poblado, a trendy district in Medellin. It is open to the outside and seems to cater to walk ins. I ate there on Monday evening and there was not much happening as far as the Park went but... More

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 & over cooked. The salmon... 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
