After several visits over the past couple of years La Albufera is becomnig less and less impressive. The wait staff seem less skilled - and are less helpful - and the food although interesting sometimes seems to lack some care in preperation. At a recent meal neither I, nor my dining companion, felt that well the next morning. It is... More

When we booked our table, the intention was to include the Flamenco show, however the morning of our reservation they rang to apologise, and said it was not on that night, at least they rang... The Restaurant is easy to find, and on entering, the atmosphere is immediately Spanish (as in Spain). The Staff are very friendly, and welcoming, for... More

Another overpriced and underwhelming international dining option in El Poblado. Stopped in for an afternoon lunch. The waiter was very friendly and attentive. He suggested a good bottle of Spanish wine that only cost 50,000 COP ($25). We had the meat and cheese plate as an appetizer, which was pretty good, but nothing you couldn't find at the Carrefour grocery... More

I really spending an evening's escape from the bustle of Medellin at this charming and romantic restaurant. The staff were charming and we really did not need the menu as we were give excellent recommendations both for food and wine. I am going back again next week and will make it one of my favourites in Medellin.

Four of us went for Tapas on a Thursday. This is the night they have a live show. The food was very good. From the camarones al ajillo (garlic shrimp) to the croquetas to the Tortilla Española (very yummy) we had a wonderful experience there. They have a good selection of Tapas and a whole menu that has from piglet... More
