They combine different products in order to create something amazing something you will not find anywere else. Location is very good. Vallet parking available. You can also drink there and enjoy an evening.

We visited Carmen in the middle of our tour through Colombia wearing dandles and shorts. The staff were super friendly and found us a table on a Sat night no problem. Great service, food and wine list.

I found the restaurant here in Trip Advisor among the top 10 restaurants in Medellin, and it's certainly true. The industrial and contemporary design is just a glimpse of what you will find inside. They offered us a tiny courtesy appetizer, beautiful and delicious. Then we order a cheese table. What a treat! As a main course, we ordered duck... More

Had an enjoyable meal at Carmen. Decided on the 5 course tasting menu with wine pairings. Was able to obtain a reservation for a solo diner and sat at the chefs table watching the kitchen at work. Highly enjoyed the meal and the pairings. Found the service to be fairly attentive.

We had a fantastic meal at Carmen. We had the five course degustation menu with wine pairings. The food was delicious and wine very good. The restaurant is beautiful and service very good. However when we arrived we were seated at one of three tables at the front of the restaurant. The tables were like cheap plastic tables and it... More

We are extremely well in Colombia so saying this was my favourite is high praise. The open kitchen, the garden out back and everything else makes the ambiance really nice. The food was amazing. The octopus was incredible, the desserts decadent and the wine really good! Highly recommend!

We had dinner at Carmen Restaurante with multiple Entrees. They were all wonderful! We will return again! Be sure to make your reservations early as they book up very quickly.

My family and I went out to Carmen to celebrate my mom's birthday while in Medellín, and it was a perfect place to enjoy high-quality food. All six of us got appetizers, main courses, drinks, and dessert, and each dish was both beautiful in presentation and absolutely delicious. Plus, the ambiance of the restaurant garden area was very nice for... More

My boyfriend and I came here as a splurge during our Medellín trip on recommendation from a friend and it was DEFINITELY worth it. Our waiter, Jeder, was fantastic - always refilling our waters, taking away any empty plates, and ensuring we had what we needed. We ordered three appetizers because we just couldn't decide between so many great options... More
