The specialty Mojito is a must. The food is prepared with care and confidence, and presented with imagination. Salient dishes were the Octopus and Empalmado appetizers. The 36 hours beef cheeks were sublimely flavorful. The ambience is welcoming, particularly in the outdoor patio.

The decor upon entry was nice, was seated on the ground floor across from bar. Overall service and food was good. IMO I feel that it's a rooted Spanish cuisine but had its far share of Asian blend in the mix. No complaints good food,...More

This is a stand out restaurant. We were lucky enough to get a seat at the bar on a Monday night without a booking. The food was top notch and the staff very attentive without getting in the way. Best meal we had in Medellin....More

The food is amazing. I had the ceviche for starters, the fish of the day with coconut risotto for mains and coconut pavlova for desert. Very good value for money.

The outside area downstairs is really beautiful ( patio ) or any of the tables in downstairs area are nice too. The patio gives you the most privacy. If I'm dining with people that's my first choice. If I'm dining alone... More

Jeans should be fine. None of Medellin's top restaurants that I know of even require a coat for the men (much less coat and tie).
