Lucio Carbon y Vino

Small restaurant, very cozy, with meat, fish and chicken. all grilled, rich desserts, run by the owners, good prices and excellent food.

Reviewed By FoodCrank - New Orleans, Louisiana

Excellent food, nice wine list and attentive service. While the focus seems to be on red meats there are other fine choices. The salad with grilled chicken was excellent, perhaps the best salad in Medellin / Envigado area. The grill vegetables are way better than...MoreThank you for your comment, very important for us, we hope to see you again.

El Trifasico

I was told this was the best place to go in Medellin for chicharron. I enjoy a nice plate of chicharron with a fresh garden salad and side of delicious avocado. Would return again. Also purchased some fresh bing cherries from a side walk vendor.

Restaurante Mama Santa

Reviewed By bagladyolg - Ottawa, Canada

We have been here several times, most recently this January and it is one of my favourite restaurants in Medellin. The service was top notch, friendly and efficient and the food was excellent and a good value. I had the surf and turf, perfectly cooked tender steak and the shrimp were great. All meals are served with a small salad, nice side potatoes and an arepa ( which I still have not developed a taste for). We all shared a dessert. I love going here, it always feels like a special occasion

This is a cafe boutique. It's placed in a second story where there's nothing similar around, so don't get confused or feel lost because of it. The whole place is amazing. The staff is quite attentive always ready to fulfill your requirements. Good prices, good cocktails, good food not a big menu, but good enough.

El Platanal

Reviewed By Eulenspeegel - San Antonio de Pereira, Colombia

Restaurante El Platanal is situated on the busy Avenida Las Vegas in the municipality of Sabaneta just south of Medellin. It is an open-air venue comprised of two thatched-roof pavilions. The restaurant offers a variety of regional "paisa" dishes including beef, pork, chicken and fish. Appetizers like patacon and tortes de coco are offered as well. The food is excellent and very reasonably priced. For the visiting North Americans, T-bone steak is available for COP$ 23,000 ($11 US). I did not try it, but a member of my party did, and said the steak was very tasty and tender. The rest of us ordered beef sirloin tips, bbq pork ribs, chicken orange and beef tongue smothered in mushrooms. The consensus of the group was that the entrees were delicious and prepared with TLC. The lunch bill for my wife and me came to COP$ 55,000 ($27 US) which included BBQ rib and beef tongue platters. The price included two drinks each. The quality and quantity of the food is outstanding. At a relatively low price, the meal was an excellent value in my opinion..
El Platanal is a clean, well-maintained restaurant that doubles as a night spot "fonda" with live entertainment on weekend evenings and televised sporting events on weeknights. The bar includes a menu of domestic and imported beers and spirits as well as a diverse wine list. The open-air venue provides a relaxed, casual dining experience that is appropriate for a gathering of friends, business associates, families or couples. Both the kitchen and wait staff are efficient and friendly, and remained at our back and call the entire time we were there.
Based upon my recent experience at Restaurante El Platanal, I highly recommend this fine establishment.

Picnic

Reviewed By CDY - Medellin, Colombia

They have opened up a bigger dining area across the street from the kitchen - wife like their sandwiches - I can only comment on the lasagna - very good , tough to find decent lasagna in Medellin, normally not much taste tast and too much cheese, Picnic adds sauce and flavor.

Il Forno

Reviewed By rmurray5 - Phoenix Arizona

Normally I don't like restaurant chains, but il forno is an exception. The menu is large and bound to please anyone in your party. And actually the food is very good. I have tried several locations and they all have the same menu. The ingredients are good, recipes are good, and the prices are great for what they offer. The places are popular with large families, they do special occasions like birthdays , etc.

Chiclayo Cocina Peruana

Reviewed By Julian Y - Medellin, Colombia

Yesterday we had the opportunity to visit this restaurant located in La buena mesa of Envigado city. The place from the outside is small but haves a charming decoration. The food was prestine with really good taste. The dishes are not exaggerated big but enough for a normal person. The prices range from 25000 to 34000 pesos which are aprópiate for the dishes they offer. The service was well done but the only thing I would recommend is to get a datafone so you don't have to stand to pay. Nice job
