La tRES uno is a small steakhouse located in Envigado in Calle de la Buena Mesa that is popular with locals and some foreigners and it has some good steaks.

In the United States, we’d call La tRES uno a steakhouse, but here in Colombia and South America it’s known as a parilla, a restaurant where grilled meats are served.

A friend lives near this steakhouse and highly recommended it. So, I went with my friend recently for lunch and returned for dinner the following week with another friend. Service was excellent both times and the steaks were perfectly cooked and very good.

In addition, La tRES uno is currently second-highest rated steakhouse in Envigado on TripAdvisor.

The Bottom Line: La tRES uno

La tRES uno is a small and popular steakhouse in Envigado with some good steaks in my experience. This steakhouse can get busy and fills up on the weekends according to my friend who lives nearby, as it only has about 10 tables. But you can make reservations.

There are three steakhouses near each other in Calle de la Buena Mesa with good steaks. La tRES uno competes with Lucio Carbon y Vino and Black Pepper Steakhouse, which are both nearby.

La tRES uno is the smallest of these three steakhouses and has a cozy atmosphere, good service and very good steaks.
