Guillermo is the man! Very helpful, outgoing, and always smiling. It is a joy to eat brunch or lunch when he is working. The staff is attentive and the food is worth a visit. Find Guillermo and you'll be treated like royalty. I'd go back to Colombia just to see him. Not to mention he recommended dulce Jesus mio on... More

The restaurant's food and service were quite below what one expect at this type of hotel. Dishes were bland and server's recommendations were useless. I would not recommend this place until both food and service improve substantially.

Attention the best. Food... its an experience. They serve you a volcanic rock.. hot ...very hot. You can cook your own food or if you are lazy the chef will do it for you. The Margarita is awesome. For such a classy restaurant i think is very economic.

Buffet breakfast each morning at this restaurant, overlooking the pool, was delicious and with a friendly staff. Omelettes made to order and yummy homemade Colombian arepas with shredded white cheese are what I was always after and gratefully got! An abundance of assorted juices, fruits, yogurts, nuts, cereals, breads, cheeses, meats, and even more were always available during the three... More

Honestly we only went to the restaurant at the InterConti Hotel, cause during the semana santa every other good restaurant was closed. The atmosphere is typical hotel -like. So don't expect romantic evening (kids are jumping in the pool till 10pm... 5m next to your table...so be prepared) and don't expect staff that is very enthusiastic. Food wise it was... More

In the past I used to stay a lot at the Intercontinental and now a resident of the city I still go up from time to time to visit the bar, the hair dresser or eat at the hotel. The Fogon is as before a pleasant place to eat. Outside by the pool area at night it feels well away... More

My husband brought me to this place because he wanted me to experience what he thought was an excellent place to make good memories in Medellin. I agree that this place is most excellent in everything. The staff was very professional and helpful. They made sure we were being taken cared of. The setting is outside, the furniture is rustic,...

We worry about eating when we travel and cannot find a vegan gluten free restaurant at our destination.... However breakfast and now dinner was not only vegan, it was delicious! In spite of the language differences the chef here created two dishes for my husband and I. A curry rice and a mushroom dish! Wow! Congrats to chef Luis!

The poolside eating is provided by the Restaurante Fogón de Piedra. It offers an exquisite flavorful selection of meat and seafood prepared by you on hot stones…this was a new experience for us. The restaurant also offers gourmet pizzas baked in a wood burning oven. There was a big table with a salad bar and dressings…another table with desserts. My... More
