Very nice atmosphere, nice menu with great appetizers and unusual main dishes. Good service. Very good wine list. Good desserts. Ask to be seated in the main floor, bottom floor is not as nice. Nice experience all together.

Jeans should be fine. None of Medellin's top restaurants that I know of even require a coat for the men (much less coat and tie).
