Last with my boyfriend (we are a gay couple) were looking for a place to have dinner and drinks. Basilica seemed like a nice place. The night was going well, dinner was fine and pisco sour was ok. We asked for a second round of pisco sour and then it was when everything went down. A very upset waiter came... More

Had been to this restaurant in my recent visit. A great location in the heart of parque lleras and excellent view of the entire parque. Ordered Peruvian food and didn't look like it was Peruvian. Apart from location nothing great about this place

The food they serve there isn't the best you can find in Medellin but it's ok. The location is unmatched if you enjoy people sighting in the middle of Parque Lleras.

Went to watch US/Colombia match. Had a few drinks and a good shrimp ceviche. I have read about the bad service but you only need to motion towards a staff member and they will promptly come over.

Came for a couple drinks and food while its very hard to get the waiters attention and when you do it he takes more than 10 min to bring your order to you. The food quality is good but your paying basically American prices for the food overall value id go somewhere else

I really enjoyed this restaurant, as this was one of the only restaurants not so crowded that night, my girlfriend and I decided to take the shot, we weren't disappointed. The atmosphere in the place is really nice, more if you are seated in the street side tables, just be aware of the street sellers because they don't care and... More
