I have been going to this Rancherito location near the MDE airport for at least 10 years. I love everything about this place -- service, atmosphere, food, people, menu, willingness to change items to accommodate requests, etc.
If you stay at the Movich hotel near the MDE airport, then take the short walk to Racherito, you won't be disappointed.
Róbalo (Snook) a la plancha (grilled) or sautéed with garlic and onions is one of my favorite dishes. I also love to order BAKED plantains. Normally the plantains are fried, but at Rancherito they'll bake them for you if you ask. Add guacamole and hogao (warm, mild salsa) for a great appetizer.

After exploring their huge shopping mall we decided to stop here to eat and it was well worth it. Myself and my partner went for a savoury one each, one Mexican style and one with chicken broccoli and cheese. They were INCREDIBLE and just what I hoped they'd be. Would definitely recommend as it's so tasty, there's loads of different options to suit all and it's not too expensive either. Also try the 'French hot chocolate ' YUM

The nice thing about the Rionegro area is that there are a number of reasonably-priced, excellent steakhouses. Mundo's, in the vereda of Llanogrande, is certainly one of them. My wife and I shared dinner with a number of friends at Mundo's last night, and we were blown away by the quality and value of our meal. The restaurant is a sprawling ranch-style building that is perfect for any type of dining occasion. Whether it is a romantic dinner for two, or a family dinner, the restaurant is perfect. Mundo's is situated just off Llanogrande Road, and just 10 minutes away from either JMC international airport or Rionegro city. Our servers were warm, genuine and attentive.
Our meals took a little longer than expected, but were, without a doubt, worth the wait. My 400 gram Brangus New York Steak was done to perfection. It was accompanied by garlic-flavored potato puree and half of a tomato filled with chimichurri dressing. Charcoal flavor permeated throughout my steak, and with the exception of a dash of salt, no additional flavoring was necessary. My steak was tender as butter. I was overwhelmed by the size of the steak, so I took my time savoring each bite. Long after everyone was finished, I was still eating. Excluding drinks, the price for my dinner was 36,900 pesos (about $11.00 US). I also sampled a barbecued pork rib. The rib was tender and tasty, and I intend to order this dish on my next visit to Mundo's.
Our evening at Mundo's was pleasant and the two hours passed quickly. The best surprise of the evening was our bill. Our feast which included appetizers, entrees, drinks and a dessert for 6 adults and 1 child plus tip came to a mere 367,000 pesos ($110.00 US). From now on, Mundo's is on our list of regulars. Without any Reservations, I highly recommend this fine restaurant.

This is a great pit stop before catching a flight or after arrival to the airport in Medellin. Conveniently located at the entrance to the airport this cozy typical restaurant serves a good steak and a huge portion. The service is fast and friendly and I thought the prices normal despite the proximity to the airport. You can’t go wrong with a pit stop here!

If you want to have a nice, informal and inexpensive meal/dessert, this is the place to go. The menu includes savoury and sweet creps and waffles, salads and ice creams. Service is always good. They have multiple locations which are consistently good.

Visited this restaurant twice during my stay in the city. Delicious almuerzos and excellent value for money at only $7,000 pesos a person including soup and a natural juice/iced tea. The interior of the bar is also very cool and interesting, very retro with pinball machines and a pool table. You can eat inside or sit on the balcony to eat overlooking the main plaza of Rionegro. The staff were extremely friendly and after finding out that I was from England they encouraged me to hop up onto the bar for a photo with the union jack!

I had the pleasure of visiting Hornearte twice and I enjoyed it very much. They have amazing cappuccino and their pastries are so delicious and flaky. Definitely a place to visit.
