“Great experience for Paisa food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2012

Genuine serving of Paisa food in a beautiful old house close to San Lucas. It is a try the local food in a place like this as locals enjoy it rather than with tourists elsewhere in Medellin. Warning that local cuisine is served plentiful and full of carbs so go with an empty stomach and loose fitting clothes!

“Excellent local food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2011

There are a number of La Doctoras and each is excellent - they serve local dishes of a high quality so if you want to eat typical Paisa food, I would recommend La Doctora. The setting is normally in an open but roofed area to protect from the rain. Their frijoles (beans) are delicious as is the grilled chicken and robalo (sea bass). We have eaten in all the La Doctoras from Sabaneta to Medellin and never been disappointed.
