An atmospheric and warm place with a bamboo ceiling and brick interior, Ave Maria is popular with Europeans and Americans, and is known for its international fare. Try the house specialty, los lomitos Ave Maria (beef tenderloin), or one of the other beef specialties. The restaurant, which overlooks Parque Lleras, also functions as a bar at night. It's a great place to enjoy a bottle of good wine, sit back, and take in the action of Parque Lleras on a Friday or Saturday, when it seems the cream of the crop of Medellín society comes to see and be seen. If you're low on funds, check out the special menu from noon to 6pm offering more economical options. Tuesday through Saturday, there's live music. When this guide was published, the owner was planning a changeover to Mexican food.
