colombian food from many regions. Food was good, service was good. This old colonial home is very atractive with an open patio in the middle of the house decorated with some antiques. This place is unique

We love this restaurant and always recommend it to our guests. They feature traditional dishes from all over the country; my favorite is the ajiaco (soup) but we've never had a bad meal here. The service is very attentive and professional, the ambiance is really nice, and the owner knows English if you want more info about a dish. I hope they make an English menu, however, because a lot of the ingredients are ones we still don't recognize after living here for almost 2 years. We hear it's busy on the weekends so make a reservation, but weeknights tend to be pretty slow for them. I believe they start serving dinner at 6:30.

Definitely give En Casa de Oliva a try if you want authentic Colombian fare but are tired of heavy meals like beans and steak. Some of our guests have said it's one of the best meals they've had ever!

This restaurant has Real Colombian Food, different dishes for those who want to taste more than antioquean beans. Colombian food served in an exquisite way and like in no other restaurant in Medellin.

This restaurant specializes in Colombian food from different regions. Their menu includes traditional dishes and new recipes inspired in traditional ingredients. While you'll find many restaurants for local food in Medellin, this is the only restaurant I know of in this city that will give you an opportunity to try a wide spectrum of regional food. Dishes that are even unknown to many locals in Medellin.
