San carbon is one of my favourite steak restaurants in the city. Here, you can eat very nice punta de anca, churrasco, solomito etc. The service is excellent, which is a rarity in colombia. Also there is live music on all days of the week except monday.

The restaurant is quite large and well located. It is not fancy and prices reflect that. The food, mainly beef, was excellent and the portions were generous. Service was extremely courteous, as in most of the country. The only downside was the mariacchi's band - very loud volume - especially painful, since I don't like the style. All in all,... More

This is a very good restaurant for steak. We enjoyed the tri-tip and fish. The plantains were wonderful side dishes as well. The service was thoughtful, in English and solid. They make their own cognac and have a bottle on each table. We didn't sample this, but the story of how they make it and the history is nice to... More

Fine dinning place. Good location with nice views. Nice setting, atmosphere and decoration. The menu is excellent from a meet perspective, meat cuts from USA, Argentina, Brazil and of course Colombian local dishes like chicharrones. Prices in the high end.

San Carbon was recommended by a local taxi driver and he assured us that we would be pleased with the experience. Have to agree with him. In this city of steakhouses, San Carbon was a pleasure. We've been to other Colombian steakhouses (in other cities) and we've always been disappointed. The quality of the steak was excellent and very flavorful.... More

Close to where we were staying, we went to rejuvenate after our flight while waiting for our room to ready. Salad bar was great value, flavor and fresh. But sausage sampler lacked flavor and bloody marys were disappointing. But....we went again the next day for dinner(proximity/laziness/ second chance). SOOO unimpressed. Salad bar not as good and filet with mushroom sauce... More

Family enjoy all food. As entrees with chorizo, arepas with cheese and chicharron. Sterling was my choice, excellent meat, excellent cook. Coffee was good but with low temperature it is something to improve.

Today, I returned to SAN Carbon for the second day in a row. Yesterday, I had the filet and a business associate had the lobster. The filet was excellent, but after seeing the lobster dish I knew I had to try it. I was not disappointed. On the contrary, it was one of the best lobster dishes that I have... More

This is definitely one of the best, if not the best restaurants in Medellin. I would call it a must do while in the city. Steaks are great and the "chuleta" was very good.
