This restaurant is a bit hard to find, but if you do find it, you won't be sorry. One of the best views in the world in my opinion. The food was very good, but I went with a group so I don't know the...More

I´ve been to the Portal de Cocora twice, so every time I was in Salento, I also went to the Portal. I came for the view, which is unsurpassable, and the "trucha al ajillo y limón", trout in a light lemon and garlic sauce, served...More
