“Fine Dining”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

The ambiance and the service were excellent. We were there for lunch and noticed that this restaurant is favored by trendy, young professionals. The menu, innnovative and delicious! I recommend this restaurant without question. We ordered a bottle of Malbec ( Argentina ) and it was excellent.

“Unique menu”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

We went with my brother who lives in Australia and he says it is one of the best meals he has tasted. It is a true culinary experience and well worth a visit, though it is not cheap. It is one of the trendiest places in Medellin with a fantastic atmosphere - we sat upstairs and enjoyed the views of the restaurant. It was a gastronomic experience so we'll be back!!

“Another level! Try it out”
Reviewed June 2, 2012

I guess it's in the top 10 list of the best and trendiest restaurants in Medellin. I had been told that many times, but hadn't had the chance of visiting them. I was invited by a friend of mine las t week and decided to go with some friends and my wife, and enjoyed a very pleasant afternoon. They held a very interesting event -which takes place everyother month- for which they usually bring well known top quality international chef from out of town, to prepare an cook a 5-course meal, which is well explained to the detail. Along with the dining experience they also bring a wine expert who serves 5 different cups of wine, one for every dish, specialized for the kind of meat, pasta and even dessert served throughout the afternoon. What a nice experience...

Now, if you're not in for a special event, I can also recommend it. I came back on regular night and found it very nice. The food, the ambience, the setting and its minimal architecture style create the optimal experence. As I said, try it out (loved the Squid!)
