This is an excellent restaurant, in my opinion, one of the best in Medellin. Nice atmosphere, fantastic service, and great food. They also have an excellent selection of different cuts of beef. Highly recommended.

We went here because it was next to our hotel and on top of that we are hardcore meat lovers. The restaurant is quiet big and a little bit too unpersonal. But the churasco was really wonderful. Prices are high for Colombian standards but don't forget y're eatting out in 'el Poblado'.......

I had a 10K race the next day so I opted for the salad bar, which was 18.500. The options were fine. Pretty standard, though not as good as a Whole Foods salad bar. I opted for a second bowl despite not being that hungry any more and would later find out when I got the bill that they charge... More

The atmosphere inside the restaurant was very chill and the views were spectacular. A 10% tip was included which seems odd for a party of 2. It seemed the waiter really didn't try very hard as he knew a tip was coming. (In my opinion) the service was a bit slow to start and took the waiter over 15 minutes... More

We visited this place because it was very closed to our hotel (less than 5 minutes walking distance) and boy did we enjoy it. Live music, excellent location, we had a quick bit and was good. The inconvenience was that they took long to take our order, but the place was crowded, so nothing really bad. I had a coconut... More

Great food and service, and a nice view of Medellin! The variety of cuts is great and the quality of the Colombian meat is very good!

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.

Thank walter f
