I stumbled upon the place, and was relatively pleased with the signature steak in I got. Ordered the smaller portion but I am guessing it was at least 10-12 oz. The steak was cooked perfectly, and went well with the fried onion that was on the side. I count it among the better, but definitely not the best, of the... More

Get the Churrasco, it's like warm butter in your mouth. Best steak in the city. Service is pretty good as well.

This is a very small place located between Parque Lleras and Parque Poblado, it is a great place to take your date if you wish to have a pleasant conversation and a good meal. The menu is very limited, but the food is very good and the staff very friendly and accommodating. There are 3 tables in the back garden... More

That a my second time inThis place. It is very simple, if you do not have a tip or recommendation you may not get in there. The beef is made over charcoal , and it is best if it comes red inside. It was very tender and tasty again but I missed some side dishes and another option of beef,... More

It is very expensive but it is perfect for meat lovers. It is probably the best Churrasco steak in the city. I have only been there on special occasions but have also definetly enjoyed it every time.

Cravings for a good churrasco? Well, go to Che and ask for a Churrasco Che, the best, tender and juicy. The place is cozy, the service is very good and they always have good recommendations. Ah! And ask for onions too!

Ate here very recently. First warning sign (which I ignored) was a menu with both steaks and pizza on it. Steaks were priced at high end for Medellin. Service was very good and the place was comfortable. Steaks were mediocre-tasting at best, though large. For the price, you could east almost anywhere in Medellin, and certainly could do better. Didn't... More

Feel like a steak? In Medellin? GO HERE. Literally the best steak of my recent memory... and I know my steak. We were allowed in when they were close to closing time and were not rushed at all throughout our memorable meal. The waiter not only recommended an excellent bottle of wine but then directed us to their 'Churrasco CHE'... More

I think the "average" rating is a little misleading, but I wouldn't go as far as saying it was "very good" either. Somewhere in between. We weren't left unsatisfied, just expected more based on the reviews. My wife and I have spent a lot of time in Buenos Aires so when other reviewers compared this to places like that, we... More
