Kuelap: A Popular Peruvian Restaurant in Medellín with Good Food

Kuelap is small but intimate and popular Peruvian restaurant located in El Poblado in Medellín with good ceviche and other seafood plus good service.

This is one of my favorite Peruvian restaurants in Medellín. I have eaten at this restaurant several times and the service and food has been very good.

In my experience, the dishes at this restaurant chain are well-prepared and well-presented. Also, it has an open patio that’s comfortable and intimate.

      Excellent website. Covers the bases. As the Terminator once said: “I’ll be back.”

      Thanks for the insights.

    2. Okay, so I’ve been here a couple of times in the past 18 months and frankly I think both the food and service are above average. I’m not much for seafood but I do like shrimp. One dish I highly recommend is spaghetti a la huancaína with grilled shrimp. It’s absolutely delicious. I don’t know enough about Peruvian food to be competent but I do love the huancaina sauce they use…my goodness. In addition, I always have their Limonada de Coco which is among the best I’ve had in Medellin. This restaurant is easy to miss due to its side location near an office/commercial center and parking garage. However, I do think taking time out for lunch there is well worth it. Besides, traffic is horrible in this area anyway so you might as well stop by and enjoy a good meal and refreshing drink.

    3. Nice post, I agree that Kuelap has very good Peruvian food and I have been there many times.
