Food was ok. We ordered the filet mignon and it wasn't great, the salad bar is good. Maybe we should have ordered something else

Our family ate here on a Friday night and it was very busy with a live band. Overall the quality of the food was very good and the prices were reasonable. It is located on the outskirts of Medellin in a very safe area. The staff was very friendly and attentive and the decor was nice.

San Carbon is an excellent steak house in Medellin. It is located in a very high end and hilly neighborhood called Las Palmas en Poblado, but all taxi drivers know where it is.

We had carpaccio, churrasco with pure de papas, grilled salmon, 2 lomitos, and a bottle of a Chilean cabernet. The restaurant has an extensive wine selection.

Service and ambiance were outstanding.

The restaurant had a small band playing romantic and popular Latin songs. Excellent singers and musicians, and they will happily take song requests.

Great place to take the wife, a date, or for a business dinner. Total bill was very reasonable for the quality received.

We will definitely visit again. If you don't have a reservation you better arrive before 8 PM... we had booked a table for 7:30, and the restaurant was completely full by 8.

Service is nothing special. You are just a number in the restaurant with 3 star-prices. Salmon itself was OK, but is came with nothing, for 35.000 pesos. Yes they gave me a small dish with yellowish stuff called "french fried". I wonder whether they ever have seen french fried in cooking literature. It was an outright shame. This was a shame. White-yellow and tasted like a hot smashed potatoe.
This is certainly not a 3 star restaurant. Just an ordinary second-class restaurant, far too expensive for the food they have. Not worth a visit for the food. The "ambiente" was OK, but I think thatis the only positive thing they offer. .
