Description: The gate is the entrance to a white universe where you live to the rhythm of human being. It's the closest thing to being in heaven, paradise and hell at the same time. Heaven, holy patience and devotion with which the Pilar chef prepares dishes. Paradise by the gastronomic delights that make entering a forbidden ecstasy. Hell, well, hell when to leave, again through La Puerta. L.Carbone

“Good food and service, although small portions”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

The small courtyards are attractively whitewashed and cool at lunchtime. The staff advised us that our order would take 25 mins to prepare, so offered us some herby bread to keep us going - such customer service touches are rare in Colombia, so this was especially welcome. Food tasty and well prepared.

Be warned - half portions of main courses are VERY small!

“Best forward-looking food in Barichara”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

La Puerta takes traditional Colombian food and makes it sophisticated. But they maintain terrific flavor while doing so. I had a steak which was perfect. The vegetables and appetizers and ice cream are also excellent. Great attention to detail.

“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2012

The restaurant was recommended by the owner of the hotel that we were staying at. If you plan on going there, I suggest you make a reservation as walk-ins usually end up elsewhere.
The food if great and the atmosphere of the place is superb! Be prepared to wait 45min for your dish as each of the orders is made by the owner and pays extra attention to every detail of it.

Will definitely return.
