Awesome street view, professional and speedy service, oh and the food is delicious and bountiful. Good selection of eats here at a decent price. Had a bite of several dishes and was very pleased. Definitely worth a try if you're in town.

Friendly staff, timely service and excellent burgers for a very reasonable price. Why waste your time queuing at any other burger place?

Am on a whistlestop tour of Colombia for 10 days. Stayed in Casa Kiwi, and on a walkaround of the amazing El Poblado area, came across this place. I'm not much of a meat-eater these days, but something pushed me towards the medallion fillets. Follow your instinct! One of the best decisions I made on this amazing trip! The restaurant... More

I have been here with my girlfriend. The restaurant serves great "Spanish tapas". We ordered the delicious "tabla latina", which have tapialpa sweet cheese (recommended), Serrano jam and French bread. Also we ordered breaded prawn, which were delicious.

I always try to be fair with my reviews. This restaurant is a difficult one to review. The food is good. Their specialty are gourmet burgers, and they have this house french fries (the best of town). The restaurant is located in a very popular neighborhood. The big problem is the way they assign the prices. First, one of my... More

The place isn't expensive and the service it's good, the burgers have a very good taste, the only problem of the restaurant is that it doesn't have a parking lot so you have to pay for the valet parking

It wasn't atmosphere and gourmet fare I was looking for that evening. I just wanted a good hamburger, a small salad, and pleasant surroundings. And that's exactly what I got -- along with a great lemonade. Who could ask for anything more?

We arrived in Medellin on the Sunday of a long weekend and just about everything was closed. We stumbled upon La Abarroteria and it was such a great find. As most of the reviews have said the staff was really friendly. We had a beautiful bottle of red wine that was cheap, the baked camembert cheese which was to die... More
