MEDELLIN | OSEA med Restaurante is a modern Colombian restaurant that’s all about simple dishes with a focus on local, seasonal produce. The space is small, and narrow, with seating for 18 people across six tables. Light wood, cushioned seats, and an assortment of artworks make for a space that feels cozy and welcoming. The bar and kitchen can be found at the back, with a large mirror helping to make the space feel roomer than it is.

Owner and head chef Solomon Borestein puts together a monthly rotating menu that lets him play with new flavours, and incorporate “forgotten” Colombian ingredients. The result is an exciting and delicious menu that’s unique amongst other restaurants in the area. It’s a small menu, but one that will grab your attention.

When we visited we ordered an assortment of dishes to share amongst our group of four. The grilled octopus with guanciale and salsa verde was fantastic, as was the tortellini with smoked eggplant and tomato. Even simple things like brown butter popcorn, and ‘cheese fries’ – thick cut potato chips with mushrooms, cheese and gravy, were elevated in the hands of Borestein and his team.

Another highlight was the felafel with cauliflower and tahini. In fact, we were very impressed by the quality of the vegetarian options. Without even realising, the majority of our order was vegetarian, and all of our highlights were dishes that contained no meat.

For drinks its an assortment of cocktails, local beers, and wines. When we visited there weren’t any English speaking staff, but there was an English menu. In any case, we were able to get some recommendations for both food and drinks from our waiter, all of which hit the spot.
