“Boring food made good”
Reviewed April 14, 2011

Let's get the typical stuff out of the way: the place is really nice, it's not too big so you get good attention from the staff and it's located in one of the best sectors in Medellin.

They sell themselves as a "new latin cuisine" which means that none of the dishes are too extravagant or strange for the people in Latin America. I'd venture to say that their menu is a bit boring, including only a couple different steak preparations, some tuna/salmon fishes and some ribs. The food quality is high and you can see that they take the preparation seriously, but the "magic ingredient" is not there, the food's too plain. I don't want to disregard their chefs because you can see they're doing a great job preparing these dishes, but for these prices you'd expected something that surprises you, not some typical foods. Don't expect to be amazed and you might walk out happy. You might want to try the Mountain's Tenderloin (it's super small so make sure you order some appetizers and dessert).
