Ate here again in February for Valentine's Day - another great meal. I ordered the "lomito con malbec y queso azul" (steak with malbec wine sauce and blue cheese) - ate every morsel. Great atmosphere as well.

We came here late one night during the week while just passing by and I am glad we stopped in. Great menu options - everything was fresh and great quality, very tasty. The service was good, and the chef came out to chat for a bit. Overall, an excellent experience - nice atmosphere as well.

I went into this place for lunch with a friend one day and was happy I did. I had a stuffed pork tenderloin with a mushroom risotto. I also ordered a fresh mango juice. Everything was excellent. The presentation was exquisite and the service was great. We even had a chance to speak with the chef, who was very nice... More

I was pleasantly surprised to find such great cuisine. I have been there twice. The first was incredible, so much so that I asked to see the chef to congratulate him. Make sure the Chef is there when you go, otherwise the experience may be the opposite. The second time, it was not great, but to be fair, it was... More

This restaurant is elegant but simple. Food is amazing, their menu is based on Fusion Cuisine where the very local ingredients are mixed creating a very delicious dish. You should try the Fresh Tuna. Prices are high but it really deserves, Reservation is recommended

We went with my brother who lives in Australia and he says it is one of the best meals he has tasted. It is a true culinary experience and well worth a visit, though it is not cheap. It is one of the trendiest places in Medellin with a fantastic atmosphere - we sat upstairs and enjoyed the views of... More
