My favorite restaurant in Medellin!

Been going to this place for a few years and it's my most favorite restaurant in the city. Plates are executed with precision and the staff is very efficient and eager to please. My only complaint is that they haven't changed the menu in a long long time, I think it's time for an update. The... read more

This place is classy without being ostentatious. The service was excellent, food beautifully presented and although a bit pricey for Medellin, well worth it. They have a wide and interesting selection of food to choose from, and the wine they recommended went perfectly (we were a bit hesitant but well pleased to have taken on their suggestion). All in all,... More

Great gourmet restaurant with fish, steak, pasta international cuisine. A must try for the foodie when in Medellin. I have been going for 7 years and have not had anything less than great.

I used to joke with my girlfriend about the "toques secretos" (secret touches) in Colombian food. I would whisper furtively, "The secret ingredient is" and invariably it would be butter, sugar or salt. That is sort of how I feel about the food at La Provincia, you can tell they load up the meats with salt, their juices with sugar... More

La Provincia has an amazing and creative menu and deserves several visits to truly try all the exotic dishes offered. The prices are high by Colombian standards but a bargain by international standards, Depending on wine or alcohol choice you get run up a substantial bill but without that the dishes are moderately priced. The atmosphere is upscale but not... More

Pretty restaurant with decent service. Zero vegan options and 2 vegetarian options (ravioli and salad). I liked that their bread and pasta is made in house.

This is one of the best if not the best in Medellin. The food is very good and the service as well. We left very pleased and definitely would return.
