Contraporton Restaurant Medellin

If you´re looking for somewhere in Parque Lleras that resembles a bit more of a traditional “Paisa” experience then give restaurant / bar ´Contraporton´ a try. Décor is very lively, with a mish-mash of fairy lights, religious paintings and Christmas decorations adorning the walls and even the split-level layout has been designed to be authentically Antioquian.

Medellin Contraporton RestaurantThe focus during the day is on the restaurant; food is reasonably priced and the menu is traditional home-cooked Colombian food as you would expect, consisting mainly of arepas, empenadas and patacon. There is also a daily lunchtime ´ejecutivo buffet´where you can experience a belly-busting “Bandeja Paisa” for only $9,500.

With a giant screen showing Colombian music videos (always entertaining!) and the sounds of salsa filling the venue, later in the evening the atmosphere soon turns from restaurant to rumba. Expect to see locals knocking back the Aguardiente ($47,000/half bottle) with spontaneous dancing around the tables mandatory! Contraporton makes a welcome change from the majority of the trendy bar/ cocktail venues that can be found in Parque Lleras... you´ll definitely know you´re in Colombia here!

TIPS
......................................................................................................................

=> At the weekends there can be a minimum cover to get a table ($15,000pp), however there is also a small bar area should you wish to just enjoy a drink or two (and of course a limitless supply of free popcorn!).

=> Look out for drinks promotions – 2 for 1 on bottles of liquor every day before 8.00pm, and all day & night on a Sunday (after 4.00pm)
