1. Hatoviejo

So, kicking off our guide to caterers in Medellín, we have Hatoviejo. Hatoviejo is an iconic fixture of the city, dating back to 1982.

Their mission was to give the people of the city a cosy atmosphere to enjoy traditional Paisan culture.

And as it happens, they succeeded in their mission. So much so that they’ve opened two further locations in Medellín since then.

Their menu is loaded with the best of traditional Colombian cuisine, like Bandeja Paisa, Ajiaco, Sancocho, Mondongo, Sudado, and so on.

However, it’s not an entirely local experience. Hatoviejo also offer a selection of international barbeque and grill dishes too!

The experience is rounded off by stunning Paisan design in their service and even live entertainment if the spirit takes you!

They’ve won some impressive awards too – don’t just take our word – winning prizes like “Best Restaurant in Antioquia” by La Barra magazine in 2011 and the Rosa De Los Vientos prize, granted by the Colombian Tourism Journalist Association.
