Carmen is one of the best restaurant in Medellín. Whiteout a doubt is a must if you visit the city or Cartagena too. The pork meat in all its presentations, very good fish and salads.

I made reservations at Carmen's for my birthday, after traveling here with a dozen friends. The ambiance was lovely, however, the service was an absolute disappointment. For starters, we weren't attended to for basic things (water, etc), despite being the largest group in the restaurant....More

Fantastic experience overall, from valet service on arrival to the moment you leave. 5 of us went for 7 course tasting menu with wine pairing while the 3 opted for a la carte menu. The tasting menu certainly was the more exciting bang-for-your-buck option with...More

Carmen serves high quality and tasteful 5- 7- or 10 course menus. Which every course you get a matching wine. This is included in the price. Even though it is a classy restaurant, it is not too formal. They play nice music in the background...More
