Our meal at Carmen was the best meal we had in all of Colombia. If you're staying in El Poblado, this is a must do meal.

I really enjoyed the Steak & Potatoes meal. I believe that this restaurant is comparable to U.S. restaurants in terms of quality and service. Price of meal was very affordable at $25-$30 per person. If you travel to Medellin, you should definitely stop by this restaurant. We didn't have any reservations, but did not have any trouble getting served on a weeknight.

I have never been able to find a decent restaurant in Medellin until now. Walked in was given a superb table without reservation,the food and service exceptional. Great value for money and will certainly go back. Ashame Medellin doesn't have more restaurants of this calibre.

What great fortune -- Carmen is just a few blocks away from where I'm staying. My meal tonight was sublime: soup of the day (cauliflower based in an almond cream sauce), blacked fish of the day with house made chorizo filled ravioli .. it was spectacular. Moreover, it was filling! Often you walk away from fine dining establishments not completely satisfied, but this was not the case with Carmen. Service is spot on. Unlike so many other Colombian restaurants, your water glass is never empty. Carmen is pricey, but worth it. This is a highly recommended place.

Walking distance from hotel. I had the best solomillo (steak) and my granddaughter had ribs. Super elegant, and fantastic cuisine.
