It is about 3 minutes down the road after leaving the airport on the right side. It's always my first meal every time I'm in town. you will see so many of the same people who were on the flight with you here with family that met them at the airport

Stopped to have dinner after we landed before we got to the hotel. Everything was average. Live music was so loud we couldn't carry any type of conversation. Personally we will never be going back.

Words cannot begin to describe what a wonderful restaurant this is. The food is so good that I cannot wait to return to Colombia so I can eat at Dona Rosa. The food is authentic Colombia cuisine serving the most incredible delicacies including fresh fish, steak, fried plantain, etc etc. The places is always busy and Dona Rosa is right... More

If you want typical food for a low price and you don´t expect high quality this could be an option. But if you want to eat very good food in a good place, you have to go to another restaurant.

Dona Rosa is a roadside restaurant on Via Las Palmas just before entering Medellin. The food is typical paisa (arepas, asado & bandejas) and reasonably priced. Dona Rosa's caters to hungry motorists. Recommended stop on the way back from the Rionegro airport.

This restaurant has two locations that I am aware of, one which is about 1 miles from MDE and another that is about 15 minutes from MDE. The food is great, the servers are friendly and humble, there is often some music, and you will like it. They hosted a small party for my American guests who traveled to Medellin... More

Great hardy food with a local touch. Come with an appetite because you will get generous portions.

The title says it all the Doña Rosa is not bad at all but it is totally in the shadows of El Rancherito just across the street. I've eaten there a few times but the service is slightly off and the food while good is not the best. This place is open past 23:00 and has breakfast which is a... More
