“Great experience!”
Reviewed June 28, 2014

This place has a really nice atmosphere. The directed conversations on tuesdays are amazing, with great topics and very intereating points of view. A very good place to meet new people, listen to good music and enjoy a relaxing environment.

“Disappointing cocktails”
Reviewed April 13, 2014 via mobile

Sorry. This was a very disappointing experience. The waitress was sweet but the drinks were not. Big disappointment with the Margarita. Just for kids who don't know their drinks.

Google Translation
Lo siento que hayas tenido esta experiencia. Pido disculpas de que su bebida no fue hecho correctamente. No estoy tratando de hacer excusas, pero justo en este momento estamos entrenando dos nuevas personas en la cocina y bar. Es difícil de oír, pero agradezco su crítica ya que me hace consciente de que tengo que ser más pendiente en mis esfuerzos para capacitar a los nuevos empleados. Asumo toda la responsabilidad y les puedo asegurarle que si usted nos da la oportunidad de servirle otra vez, su primera experiencia no se repetirá (también pido disculpas para los errores en mi español).

“Nice bar to relax”
Reviewed April 11, 2014

It's not a restaurant but nice hangout for a snack or cool drink. Enjoy all the people who pass by and grab some tortilla chips with the excellent guacamole.

“Great night”
Reviewed December 20, 2013

Great jazz band playing, servers were almost psychic. I had such a great time with my date. Come over on a Thursday night and fall in love with Medellin. I've also come on Tuesday night. Dave Campbell, the owner of the place gives free lectures on a variety of topics that are not to be missed. The crowd that comes to the lessons include foreigners as well as locals. You just eat some guacamole and wash it with a nice Colombian beer, and there, lovely times.

“Food, Language Exchange, Make Friends all in one place.”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

One of my best places to go in Medellín is Tinto Tintero, there are nice activities every week such as Free English Class on Tuesday and Language Exchange on Wednesday. Foreing and local people meet there in order to improve both English and Spanish language skills, share a drink and take a delicious meal.
