Today, I returned to SAN Carbon for the second day in a row. Yesterday, I had the filet and a business associate had the lobster. The filet was excellent, but after seeing the lobster dish I knew I had to try it. I was not disappointed. On the contrary, it was one of the best lobster dishes that I have... More

This is definitely one of the best, if not the best restaurants in Medellin. I would call it a must do while in the city. Steaks are great and the "chuleta" was very good.

After our long South America trip of trying new foods, we found ourselves with a strong steak craving. This filled the spot. The restaurant leans more towards and Argentinian steakhouse. Very highly recommended.

I love Medellin, but it is not a 'foodie' town. Ingredients are fresh, but most places offing more than fast food are hit more than miss. I like this place and have been there several times. The meats are well prepared and tasty. Side dishes tend to be a little on the small side, but perhaps I need to leave... More

This is an excellent restaurant, in my opinion, one of the best in Medellin. Nice atmosphere, fantastic service, and great food. They also have an excellent selection of different cuts of beef. Highly recommended.

We went here because it was next to our hotel and on top of that we are hardcore meat lovers. The restaurant is quiet big and a little bit too unpersonal. But the churasco was really wonderful. Prices are high for Colombian standards but don't forget y're eatting out in 'el Poblado'.......

I had a 10K race the next day so I opted for the salad bar, which was 18.500. The options were fine. Pretty standard, though not as good as a Whole Foods salad bar. I opted for a second bowl despite not being that hungry any more and would later find out when I got the bill that they charge... More
