Wonderful, cheerful, attentive service. Relaxing, contemporary decor. Very creative menu. English available. Very ample portions. Smaller dished and lighter fare available. On a Friday night it was packed with locals. Good to be in a place with fewer Americans for a change.

Located near the Dann Carlton, this restaurant is a gem. Food and service were excellent. The chef came out of the kitchen to ascertain precisely what we wanted. The rather limited menu is cleverly presented, allowing the diner some flexibility in dining options. Drinks were good. Staff was helpful and attentive. The place was packed. Reservations required.

I've eaten here twice - both fabulous meals. The restaurant itself has a nice atmosphere, elegant and quiet. I liked the outside tables. Good variety on the menu. The food was terrific - tasty ingredients, good local flavor. Looking forward to coming back for another great meal.

This place was amazing. It was not as innovative as some of the other Medellin restaurants like El Cielo - it is more traditional cuisine and execution, but everything was done flawlessly. It's a lovely restaurant - white table cloths and great service and has a relaxed elegance. The food was excellent and the server recommended a wonderful spanish wine... More

I had dinner with my family here. It is definitely one of if not the best place in town. The service is impeccable and the food is excellent. I storing ly recommend the chateaubriand bernaise, the tomato soup with shrimp and the Arequipe molten lava cake.

My impression was that this is supposed to be a business restaurant. I had the fish filet in the Catalan style. I did not care for it. I must say that the other 6 people at my table did enjoy their steak, risotto and king prawns. The most annoying thing was trying to pay the bill. It took 15 minutes... More

A must try when you are visiting Medellin ! The restaurant is a bit hidden and from the outside you really cannot look in, but once inside, the ambience and décor soothes you and you know an excellent meal is on the way. Appetizer, Maincourse and Dessert in one word delicious and with a group of 10 for dinner, we... More

Even though I stated one of the best this restaurant is easily the best for my wife and me. It comes closer than any other to a top American or European restaurant. I have been eating here for 13 years when traveling to Medellin and haven't found a better overall restaurant. Very good atmosphere, excellent service and good quality food.... More

There's little to complain about here. The service is excellent, the food good and the room well lit and attractive. The wine list certainly is better than most in the city and there's a nice quiet formality to everything. Noteworthy is a well stocked bar although I've heard that the cocktails are rather powerful. The appetizers were large - perhaps... More

We spent our 5th anniversary at the Provincia and had an enjoyable evening. The space is very nice with several different options of tables inside and out. We got a doorway to the balcony which was nice enough but a bit plagued by a draft - not surprisingly. We were also a bit out of sight of the staff which... More
