We went for lunch and ate food I would never imagine enjoying but everything was absolutely delicious. We were seated inside downstairs but the courtyard outside looked beautiful. Even though it is a bit expensive it is an excellent value overall. The octopus, pez negro,...More

The ambience and set up of the restaurant is amazing. Try to sit out in the back if you can although you have to do a tasting menu if you do. We did the 7 course menu and it took about 3 hours. The first...More

As my title suggests, it’s very good as far as presentation, service and food flavor, but was lacking in speed of service. I visited Per Se in New York recently and got my 11 course meal served faster than my 5 course meal at Carmen....More

I'm currently sitting at Carmen, going on hour three of the seven course tasting menu. The food has been unremarkable, overindexing on "exotic" flavors such as truffle oil. Sometimes the flavors go so far in the wrong direction as to conjure tastes more akin to...More

After reading multiple sources that raved Carmen was the restaurant in Medellin, grabbed a reservation for a Tuesday night. The entire meal was so, so disappointing. Service was exceptionally slow. It took almost 30 minutes after ordering to get water. We ordered the 7 course...More

The outside area downstairs is really beautiful ( patio ) or any of the tables in downstairs area are nice too. The patio gives you the most privacy. If I'm dining with people that's my first choice. If I'm dining alone... More

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).
