I consider myself a beefeater and I really appreciate succulent medium rare steak, along with golden french fries. By word of mouth, I found out that Andres Carne de Res was opening in Medellin and without hesitation, I gave it a try. This is a grill dining area with dance floors, 5 kitchens and a colorful playground.

The first time I went, I mistakenly took for granted that there was availability, and to my surprise, there was no table for my family and me. I realized a reservation had to be made. The following weekend I made a reservation for 10pm for my friends. We arrived at 10:10 and everything was as  it had been scheduled. The tables were set with unique tableware, spotless and clean. I was dumbstruck! The decor in Andres is fabulous and one of a kind.  The place is like a circus where decoration is tacky and colorful and yet very appealing to the eye, and every staff member is part of the decoration and show. This in contrast to Milagros, a Mexican restaurant, and well known for its exuberant decoration too, is no challenge for Andres. Milagros is okay, but just okay.

We took our places and commented on how friendly the ambience was. The urban music filled the two story floor building with excitement. We ordered gourmet appetizers along with some alcohol-free cocktails. The Medellin Beer Factory is similar to Andres, insofar as, the lights that flash, and the rowdy music. The Beer Factory is solid and good stuff. The food there, however, is below my standards. About an hour later, a charming waitress took our order, having recommended the juicy sirloin steak. Approximately 30 minutes later, we were dumbstruck again. The burning platter sizzled with character and the  medium rare sirloin laid in the center next to the crispy french fries. There were infinite amounts of sauces to accompany the meal. While enjoying the meal, the waiters and waitresses were very attentive. Andres Carne de Res has indeed helped in ranking the restaurants of the city at a scale of four to five stars.

The small talk at the table made us wonder if the prices were worth the food, the service, and the place in itself.  Opinions came from every corner of the table, and all of us came to the conclusion that we had never been to a place as cheerful as Andres. Andres is expensive, but from my perspective it is the perfect place for a night out with family or friends. El Correo, A grill restaurant is pleasant, the food and service is excellent prices are more considerate than Andres. El Correo is a WOW! Even though El Correo has this unique characteristics, it is never as entertaining as it always is in Andres.

We decided to stay after dining because we found out there was a CRAZY HOUR. This invites everyone to stand up and dance to the music. Shortly after and with a lot of excitement running through the veins, the staff entertains the audience with live music and acting. There’s happiness reflected on everybody’s face and Aguardiente in everybodies’ shot glass. Because the doors are closed, keeping track of time is almost impossible. As a result, we wiggle our hips until 1am.

As a final point, and as a hearty meat eater, Andres Carne de Res is a five star restaurant, one which will always be on my wish list. It is amazing! Maybe not the best I’ve ever had, but the best I can remember
