My husband and I ate dinner here. We thought we'd have two pizzas and an appetizer of hummus. The wait staff kindly told us it would be too much. She was right! The hummus was like an entree on its own. We shared a pizza which worked. They offered to make us a combination pizza; so we had a pizza... More

We visited Zorba twice during our stay in Medellin. All courses are vegetarian, but don't let this scare you. The salads and pizza's they serve here are something else! You can go half-and-half with the pizza's which i can recommend (they all taste delicious). The place looks amazing, plays nice loud music (mostly classic rock) and the crowd is young.... More

We found this restaurant expecting a typical Italian restaurant, and didn't realise it was a vegetarian restaurant until we saw the menu. We are most certainly not veggies but these pizzas were out of this world. While the service was a little slow (admittedly it was very busy), it was well worth the wait. The pizzas were truly delicious and... More

We showed up around 8 and were told were met with a relatively short wait. We were taken to sit out back on the patio, which allowed us to walk through most of the restaurant and really take in its atmosphere. The atmosphere is really, really nice, just loud enough to not have to yell to be heard and just... More

Unfortunately Colombia (a wonderful country) has mostly terrible food. It's very hard to find unique, fresh and especially healthy food. Markets are starting to pop up, finally and so are a few wonderful exceptions to the Colombian Food Problem. Zorba is amazing. Fresh ingredients, really attentive staff and a beautiful group of women cooking in front of everyone so you... More

Super cute layout. Love the decor and the music playing in the background. Pizza is delicious and I absolutely loved their ginger soda- housemade. The only thing I wish they had were meat pizzas. There is no pepperoni. Would recommend!

This is our absolute favorite pizza-place in El Poblado Medellin. Very friendly service, nice ambiance, totally friendly prices. We really enjoyed our visit and absolutely do recommend it. It totally deserves your visit.

Lovely pizzas made fresh and to order. Nice relaxed vibe in the restaurant and vegetarian friendly. Only open in the evening though and known to get quite busy so be prepared to queue/ get there closer to opening time

Thank George R
