Every course was wonderful! Had the Tacos Coreanos as an appetizer, Solomito de Res, and Banana Banano for dessert. Wonderful Meal. The mission cocktail was amazing!!! I will definitely come back when I'm in Medellin again.

Really cool relaxed atmosphere with great cocktails. Had Valentines Day set menu and everything was amazing. I think the best ceviche appetizer and best pork dish I have ever had in my life. Carmen greeted us in person and was really sweet. Waiters all totally bi-lingual and service was A+. I would not have changed a thing. Try this place... More

We took the 5-course chef's menu with matching wines and never regretted it. Great food, interesting dishes (pineapple soup) and lovely staff. All the plates were perfectly made up and tasted alike.

I honestly have a hard time finding any flaws because I was left in awe. The restaurant is stunning. All of the lush greenery that's woven throughout the restaurant truly beautifies the space. It's like a secret garden but in a dining space. Loved it. The 5-course chef's tasting was a steal given the quality. Our table got a round... More

We had the seven course tasters menu. It was simply heavenly. Everything was so delicious and the wines fit very well with the food. Very professional and kind personnel, nice environment (we sat downstairs next to the garden). Before dinner we tried a cocktail, they were some of the best we ever tasted, so refined. Worth the money!

Our experience here was excellent from the moment of arrival to the last bite of dessert. We sat in the garden and shared cerviche followed by the Carmen salad and a steak entree, all beautifully prepared and presented. The dessert choices were all tempting, but we chose a pecan tarte like plate w/ice cream.....very delicious. Our waiter Hector was very... More

Well I have not visited all the restaurants in Medellin, but from a few that we had, this one stands out. The reception was very relaxed and hospitable. The staff had a good sense of humor, very attentive and the service was timely. Then the food, yes, every one was unique and woke up all our taste buds. Simply wonderful.

We really loved our dinner experience at Carmen. We sat at the chef's counter and it was fun to see them work (we would have loved a little more interaction...). We started with cocktails that were delicious and everything we tried was truly amazing, as much in terms of creativity, taste and presentation. Would go back in a heartbeat!

Beautiful restaurant and amazing service. The tasting menu with the wine pairing is a fantastic price and is amazing. I have a fish allergy and they made me my own tasting menu. Highly recommend!
