If you want a very special place, this is it. I have eaten here many times over the last few years and have never been disappointed. The service, food, cleanliness, and decor are awesome. Food is typical Colombian and prepared with care. Weekends there is usually some entertainment and it can be a bit crowded. They will take reservations and... More

For a first time visitor in Colombia this place had great surprises. The food is great, but drinking options are not varied, a couple of local brand beers and a very short wine list. I sat outside, and there is great atmosphere in the neighborhood. I loved the complimentary veggies upon ordering.

Whenever my family and I are in Colombia we make sure to visit La Doctora in Sabaneta. The prices are great and the food is fabulous. If you order their "Punta De Anca" you will be completely satisfied. Of all the different places that we have been, La Doctora remains my favorite restaurant. It's a can't miss if you are... More

They have multiple locations - my favorite is Sabaneta - like a farm next to a creek. Awesome food - great service. Cold beer and reasonable prices. This is the type of restaurant that chances are looks exactly now like it did 30 years ago.. Some of the best beef I've had.. I am always open to return here..

Genuine serving of Paisa food in a beautiful old house close to San Lucas. It is a try the local food in a place like this as locals enjoy it rather than with tourists elsewhere in Medellin. Warning that local cuisine is served plentiful and full of carbs so go with an empty stomach and loose fitting clothes!

There are a number of La Doctoras and each is excellent - they serve local dishes of a high quality so if you want to eat typical Paisa food, I would recommend La Doctora. The setting is normally in an open but roofed area to protect from the rain. Their frijoles (beans) are delicious as is the grilled chicken and... More
