Description: Our history dates more than 30 years ago, when Hatoviejo was established in front of the 5 star Intercontinental Hotel. We wanted to provide the city with a cozy atmosphere, full with paisa culture and offer guests the best of Colombia's traditional food and cuisine (Bandeja Paisa, Ajiaco, Sancocho, Mondongo, Sudado, etc.), complemented with other international dishes: barbecues / grills. Short after, Medellín demanded more locations to please the downtown business executives and families. 10 years later, in the Oviedo shopping mall another location was opened. Today, all three continue in service and offer a wider menu including salads, soups, cazuelas, colombian desserts and a wide selection of wines. During this time, Hatoviejo has been a reference in the sector for its delicious food, excellent service and comfortable spaces that evoke the most traditional Colombian architecture and the paisa culture. Today, Hatoviejo is recognized as one of the top restaurants in Medellín and Colombia. Throughout the years that Hatoviejo has welcomed locals and tourists, it has received important prizes and recognitions like "Best Restaurant in Antioquia" by La Barra magazine in 2011 and the Rosa De Los Vientos prize, granted by the Colombian Tourism Journalist Association.

This place is a must. Besides is quite pricy, food is really good, everything.
I had a Mondongo, it was yummy. My family had Sea food parrillada, cazuela montañera and dessert. Everything was delicious.

The food is and the atmosphere with the view over an interesting street is quite nice. But, I think it is overpriced.

“very atractive setting, good colombian food”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

This restaurant is open every day, located across the street from the Intercontinental hotel, is a great place for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The ambiance is great, the food is good, the service is excellent, a favorite place when I visit Medellin. You can eat inside or or out, like many restaurantes in Medellin. Do not miss it

“A Medellín classic”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

Hato Viejo means traditional food from Antioquia in enormous portion, especially if you go for the full size "Plato Tipico". Besides that they have a wide variety of grilled dishes. Excellent service and quality
