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

Very good Mediterranean food. Good fish and pasta. Wine list is extensive. Try to be in the back of the restaurant near the garden.

I went to La Provincia with a group of co-workers. We all expected that the food would be delicious, since we had seen the TripAdvisor reviews of this restaurant, but were really disappointed and found the food to be mediocre at best (Some of us didn't like what we ordered; I didn't like my lobster pasta). The service was excellent... More

This is probably one of the best restaurants in Medellin. Large portions of excellent food and a very friendly staff.

I booked this place last minute for my group and have to say it was a great dining experience. The only criticism would be that the portions are a tad too generous. My cerviche starter was amazing but given the size of it I struggled with my main course, as did most of the group. If I was to return... More

After having a meal at Carmen the night before which blew us away, we were excited to try another 'star' restaurant in Medellin. Judging by the cars out the front, this is where Medellin's monied set eats. It has a formal conservative atmosphere accordingly. Although it was a bit strange that the staff were wearing large name badges. I experienced... More

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.
