The Best Romantic Restaurants in Medellín 

The Best Romantic Restaurants in Medellín

TLDR? Carmen is one of the best romantic restaurants in Medellin for a sweet date night.

I’ve been with my partner for a long time, but that’s not to say that we don’t need to get out of the house and go on a date night every now and then. 

In fact, we make a point of doing so regularly. 

Now, while there are lots of great places to eat in Medellin, there’s nothing quite like a romantic restaurant with the lights dimmed low.

If you’re looking for these types of places, I’ve got your back. Here’s my curated list of great date spots around the city. 

Carmen 

Carmen

Just walking in the door of this place will have your date saying ‘wow’. As you walk up to the doors of Carmen, you’ll head down a path with a canopy of greenery. 

Then, once you step inside the door, you’ll feel as if you’re walking into a cozy cavern. The stone walls and yellow lighting makes the place instantly feel warm and inviting. 

In terms of the menu, it’s honestly hard to pick between all the great items. 

I’d say that you’ve got to start with a cocktail. My personal pick would be the Zombie, a tropical flavored drink that’s adorned with edible flowers. 

In terms of what to eat, you should really go for the chef’s tasting menu. The menu comes with seven dishes and wine pairings, meaning you’ll get a chance to try all of the restaurant’s best dishes and drinks.

La Provincia is a renowned restaurant in Medellin, partly thanks to its 26 years of experience in the world of catering and food.

With an elegant and sober space on Milla de Oro in the city’s south, this restaurant offers a memorable experience full of exquisite flavors and a pleasant atmosphere.

La Provincia’s menu has a good mix of both national and international food. There are all kinds of meat and seafood, pasta, vegetarian and vegan options.

In Situ

In Situ

In Situ is actually located inside the Botanical Garden of Medellin. To me, that makes it a double-whammy for a date night!

You can start by wandering the garden paths with your significant other. Then, once you’ve worked up an appetite, head indoors and sit down to a meal at In Situ. 

This place has a casual-elegant atmosphere, and its menu is both traditional and signature. It offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner that you can either enjoy at a table with a view or can take as a picnic in the Botanical Garden.

The dishes stand out for having typical Colombian ingredients in gourmet preparations. If you’re wanting to try some classic paisa food but are looking for something a bit more upscale, this is the place for you.

Like many of the other romantic restaurants around town, at In Situ, you can celebrate special events with prior reservations such as weddings, graduations, and even engagement parties.

Tal Cual Arte

Tal Cual Arte

Tal Cual Arte is a restaurant gallery with eclectic cuisine, combining food and art in one place. They exhibit works by local Medellin artists, so if you’re big into the art scene, you’ll probably enjoy this place. 

It’s not just the walls that are adorned with art, either. The presentation of the dishes in Tal Cual is also a work of art. 

Speaking of the dishes, these are composed of different meat and seafood, pasta, and rice, and can be accompanied by a cocktail from the extensive cocktail menu. 

Although the meals here are technically Peruvian, you can actually find a pretty good mix of different types of meals. 

That way, if you’re not fussed on ceviche and chica morada, you can still find something you like. 

Another thing to know about this place is that they actually offer a brunch menu on Sundays. Or, you can treat your date to one of the nights when they’re having live music

Either way, I’m pretty sure you’ll blow your special someone away.
