One of the Best in Town.

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.

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
