Were staying at the Intercontinental hotel, this place is walking distance down the road. We had a late saturday lunch at this restaurant, was packed. Live balad and bolero music made up for the very slow service. Grilled food are their main courses which was average. Had fun due to the atmosphere, drinks and music. Not live music daily, ask...

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

Eat a good steak in a semi - rural environment , with a spectacular view of the city , but just minutes from downtown and the activity of Medellin , is what you can find in San Carbon.

Good location. Lower patios have views of Medellin. Well set out and appointed. Very open restaurant design. Food is very good and the waiters are very attentive and professional. A nice spot to come for a dinner with friends when in Medellin. Very nice atmosphere, not too loud and open air.

I was at the restaurant for my father in law's birthday and I called to reserve a table (5 persons) and to decor properly with balloons at the table as they do here in Colombia. It was tuesday for lunch. We arrived 5 minutes before because we were afraid of the traffic jam. The table simply did not have the... More

This restaurant is big and there was no need to reserve. It totally delivered what we want from a steakhouse. The beef is good (they serve local as well as imported Angus beef), they cook it well and there's a good selection of wines. We went for the local beef, and had thick-cut fillet steaks cooked medium-rare with fries and... More
