This is a destination restaurant- well worth the trip. It sits in a bustling area of Medellín nightlife, and parking is a little tricky, but make it a point to visit if you can. We arrived without a booking, and so were seated at a...More

The food, area, and service are all good. But be prepared to pay big bucks for lunch. When I say that I am talking pesos, for a plate about 55,000 which is very expensive. If you have good restaurants back home and are in need...More

Wonderful food, interesting decor and amazing service! We were treated not as tourists, but as special guests.

While we did not have a reservation in advance, we were so fortunate to be able to capitalize on a cancellation. The service, atmosphere and especially the food were fantastic and, in North American terms, excellent value. Carmen is well-worth including in your Medellin visit.

Is there a dress code? I have been backpacking across SA and have only athletic apparel to wear.

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).

WTF😱? You Can Count On This Place being closed on any three day weekend or other Colombian holiday. But don't count on the American owners to post a notice in the window or update their website. That would be too much attention to detail. A wasted cab ride across town to try to visit this establishment. I guess I'll try to learn what the storied hype is about when I get to cartajena.

Cute. phoning ahead is something I would have done if your site didn't expressly prohibit reservations of less than 48 hours advance notice.
