“Great beef and a great view of the valley”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

The best steak I had in Medellin was at the San Carbon. The restaurant is an open air style and has sweeping views of the Medellin valley. The only complaint was the volume of the music as the night wore on. Get a seat on the valley side and you can take advantage of the views and distance yourself from the music a bit.

“Super-tasty steak dinner”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

We both had rib-eyes that were out of this world. Nice tropical setup, there was also a band. Great service, expensive wines.

“Wonderful atmosphere and service”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

the restaurant has live music many nights, very good folkloric singers. Meat is excellent quality and service very attentive. Prices are reasonable and the atmosphere is very pleasant for a local steakhouse. I would definitely go back!

“Amongst the top best steaks in Medellin”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

In comparison with the competition, San Carbon has to be amongst the best steak restaurants in Medellin, if not the best. The food is consistently very high quality with attentive service, excellent selection of wines and delicious food. What more could you ask?
