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.

We had a table on a lovely terrace with garden view , very romantic, in... More

the food was good but old fashion and a bit boring. The menu was the same old stuff. I would expect something more top line for the price.

We visited this restaurant based on the review I read and we were not disappointed. We started our evening ordering appetizers of ceviche and a tomato soup with shrimp. The ceviche was outstanding and the presentation excellent. The soup was very slight with excellent flavor and the shrimp was cooked well. For our main course my wive had the fish... More

Outstanding restaurant, not large and fills quickly so reserve as soon as you decide to visit. In our group's opinion, the best restaurant in Medellin. Friendly, fair prices and we thought the desserts were world class. One of our group asked the Chef to prepare Pasta Pomodoro for a simple test and he passed with flying colors. Same person commented... More
