I didn't look up this restaurant until after I dined there -- how had this not been on my radar? After a grueling day of traveling, I wanted to treat myself. I ordered the "negra" (seafood paella dyed black with squid ink) and the house...More

I love going to El Barral to eat Paella, it’s all I’ve ever eaten in the restaurant to be honest. My favorite is the black one which has squid ink. I highly recommend it. Service is very good, waiters are very attentive and they have...More

The food was nice - not excellent - and it has a very good service. The restaurant is very warm and offers a nice environment, although there is a lot of echo if you are going with a big group. Maybe the food could be...More

There are now very good restaurants which offer spanish food in Medellin (or Envigado in this case) but there are so little details that can definitely make the difference, in El Barral it is the excellent service. If you choose this restaurant you can't miss...More

Started with the potato tortilla "tapa", it was bland and the cheese salsa was good but not great. We both ordered paella (two different kinds, one seafood and one with meat and seafood), rice was brown, terribly greasy and overcooked as well as the seafood...More
