The cuisine is nothing to write home about regarding both preparation and presentation; however, it is GOOD, satisfying food that takes advantage of local ingredients (fruits and vegetables). Wine selection is as minimalistic as they come.

you can find a wide range of colombian dishes. The serves are nice and willing to combine different side dishes. Try to make a reservation if you want a spot at the terrace with city view.

In the last 3 years, we have eaten in this legendary Colombian restaurants. Although it's always been a solidly pleasant dining experience, never before have we enjoyed it as much as we did last June when we had guests from the US staying with us....More

Great place for authentic Colombian food. Only knock on it is that it is always very busy. I enjoyed the food and left very full.

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, Medellin 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 Medellin 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.
