Walking past, thinking about atmosphere we walked in. Got a table, waited for a long time, asked the waiter, waited again, gave him one more chance, ordered the house dish, only to find out there was NO RICE (come on? Exito is around the corner...More

Avoid at all costs, easily the worst meal I've had in the whole of central and South America I would be disappointed if it was a 8000 cop menu of the day but 25k what a joke and 20% for service, ridiculous.

I loved this quaint little restaurant. The food was excellent, and you get free drink and dessert with your meal. Not only that but they dress you up in vintage gear. So much fun!!

After coming from Monserrate my wife was feeling sick. We notice on the sign it was a cafe. We were told they had traditional Colombian aromatica so we decided to stop in for a quick drink. We ordered two aromaticas, a beer, and a coffee....More

This was our first taste of traditional Colombian food and we found it quite bland. The next 2-1/2 weeks of our trip brought other types of traditional food that we liked much more than what we had at La Puerta Real. However, the owner took...More
