Somewhat difficult to find, keep you eyes open when on the street. Don't hesitate to get in. Delicious food, courteous people, romantic ambiance, calmer than most places around El Poblado and good music.

Nothing special for the price you have to pay. We had recommended dishes like pulpo, ceviche and posta negra. Was ok but don't expect to eat something special. The interior is very nice, great service but value for money low. We know better restaurants in Medellin for this prices. Would not come back again :(

This is quieter than many restaurants in the Poblado neighborhood, located just off busy Calle 10. Despite the name, which suggested vegetarian, the restaurant has a great choice of meat dishes. Ask the waiter to describe the Colombian Spanish names for different cuts of beef. Good wine list. Restaurant is also extremely good value for money.

Delicious fusion food with local ingredients. Don't miss the octopus. Very good cocktails. The Tamales Trifásicos were a bit dull.

Siri found this one for me. I walked to 2 Kms from Santa Fe mall, which is pretty much a straight line, or a 10 minute walk from Poblado metro. Efraim came to my rescue as my Spanish is very limited. He was able to share with me his recommendations and also answer my questions regarding the source of their... More

Good food but a little to fancy and upscale for my taste and nothing really new on the menu. I would recommend this place for couples that look forward to great food in a fine dining atmosphere. The tuna was great, light and fresh but still lots of food, highly recommended. Big portions and a bit pricey.

This is a really nice place for in the know people. Great food, fast friendly service, a little more expensive than most, but worth it.

Herbario was created in 2006, refurbishing an old warehouse to transform it into a laid back restaurant with modern architecture and welcoming atmosphere.
The menu created by Rodrigo Isaza is a collection of healthy dishes that pay homage to herbs and spices, taking advantage of the freshness and variety of the local produce.
Every season the menu contains a wide variety of dishes ranging from meats, fresh fish from the Colombian Pacific, vegetarian courses and desserts that combine elaborate flavors and accomplished aesthetics.
