It was the first experience at El Cielo for my wife and I and we were delighted with the culinary experience together with the excellent service. Would definitely recommend any visitor to Medellin to include a visit to El Cielo!

This was my first visit, it's a small place with good service. The use of the modernist techniques in the cooking it's attractive. The food was good, I would have chosen different wines for the pairing. This kind of experience is not cheap, but surely it will cost much more outside of Colombia. If you are going in the night...

My boyfriend and I went there. Comparing with the fine dining restaurants that I have been to this is really average. I mean the food was good, a nice interpretation of the traditional colombian food but the service was really not good - the just don't get the basics of good service. You cannot bring food when someone is on... More

Very creative place and perhaps not for everyone. Food was delicate and creative. Service was very good, however, i visited at lunch and the place was not very busy. But the service at the time was spot on. If for lunch and taking the small set menu, one can choose the entree, however, the app and the dessert is preplanned.... More

We loved this restaurant, with its very creative and inventive cuisine. the whole evening was a great gastronomical journey, with many different taste and visual sensations. on the whole the staff were attentive and helpful. at times seemed rather absent. But would recommend anyone interested in food to try it.

For us the experience was not what we expected. They advertise themselves delivering " a unique gastronomic experience". But we didn't find any uniqueness in the experience at all. Descent food, but nothing special, at high price.
