"What a treat" said my future Mother in Law while we walked towards the car. I was brought to this restaurant to celebrate a birthday with people that have already experienced it. The first thing I noticed was the wonderful service, but was biased since my party knew the owners, I decided to go at it alone. The Red Snapper... More

When we finished the owner came to the table to check on the service, and offered us all a free Amaretto. Setting offers an nice quite location with nice decoration. They have private rooms... More

The location on poblado avenue may give your taxi driver some issues in particular if you are coming from the parque lleras area. It's actually at the end of a bunch of car dealers (next to the local Mini Cooper dealership) and down a set of stairs. The issue is where to cross the avenue either in a car or... More

It is definately the best sea food restaurant in Medellin. They have a premium variety of food. The attention is great. The owners are always there looking after the restaurant. The location is good. It doesnt feel fancy but the food is awesome. It is more or less expensive but not that much taking into account that sea food in... More

I went with my family and we all had fish, in different types. All of them were delicious and big. For non-alcoholic drink I totally recommend the coconut lemonade. Very good attention and service. It's a little expensive, but the taste is great and also de size of the dish.

Very simple decoration and furniture (plastic chairs) then you are surprised by the food. Salmon fondue is an appetizer you cannot miss, the Mixtos are delicious. Service is friendly and coordinated by the owner, you must follow her recommendations. Only but, maybe should have a better wine options. Do not miss it, better sea food than other options in Medellin... More

Went during a conference for a bus lunch. Not your normal venue for bankers meeting. Great family spot. Also outdoors under a roof. Nevertheless, we had a wonderful time with great food and quiet enough for discussion. Only negative was a lipstick stain on my coffee cup - but that happens. Beware it's a tricky location and you need take... More
