If you're visiting Medellin I would like to recommend San Carbon Restuarant - it's a large restaurant with a thatched roof and open sides so it doesn't get too hot The menu is extensive but probably best for meat lovers - salad bar extensive and delicious It has a great atmosphere with a live band playing Latin standards and favourites...

Spacious place obviously featuring steaks. Lots of good fish too. Service is quite good. Good beer selection but I don't recommend the Colombian beer. Great value. Airy. Live music- you can take lower balcony as it is quieter.

Nice steak house in Medellin, typical architecture from the region, good steaks and regional food like the arepas, I recommend the Chicharon as entry food and also the Sangria

Been eating here numerous time through past 4 years. The food is always consistently delicious and the service is always welcoming. I always look forward to dining at San Carbon when I'm in Medellin.

Food wasn't great, but the place is really fun. Live music 6 days a week. Great for drinks and appetizers. The steak was ok but the baked potato was excellent. Good carpaccio and arenas.

Nice location and atmosphere but food is average. I believe this place is overrated. There is better restaurants in the area.

Nice view of the city, fabulous food and amazing price! At the current exchange rate you can get a large filet mignon for about $13! Like most restaurants in Medellin, it is open air, but it has a palapa type roof and lots of wood and character. We saw many reserved tables and locals clearly look to this as a... More
