I have visited Barranquilla 12 times in the last 14 months, and have had a fabulous lunch at Steak House Chez Ernest on 11 of those visits. Why not all 12? Because on one visit I was only in Barranquilla for a 3-day holiday weekend and the restaurant wasn't open on any of those 3 days, lol. Simply the best... More

This extremely intimate restaurant is not always open like most, but if you are lucky enough to land one of the few tables here be prepared for a real extrodinary experience. The owner/manager is on hand at all times and is constantly working the room to make sure your meal is perfect. This is by far the best steak I... More

This is the best restaurant in Barranquilla, in a very typical neighborhood. Although its very expensive its worth every penny. Their steak is excellent, their fries, fiambre and fish of the day always good. Desserts are top notch creme brulee. Be prepared to pay big bucks here but end up very satisfied, trust me you'll be back. They open mon-fri... More

The place is totally unassuming, but a great surprise!! The owner goes around asking about the food which is nice. The steak and fries were delicious. I think is one of the best places to eat in Barranquilla.

We enjoyed our first visit in May so much, that we very much looked forward to dining here again on our return to Barranquilla in July. High quality cuts of beef not often found along the coast, wonderful appetizers such as the mussels as well as the escargot, and a delightful bottle of wine. Just the right dose of service... More

Hi, the place is great. It is small, but the food is fantastic. The pepper steak is one of their main serves, but I recommend the Chataubriand: a fantastic, juicy tasteful piece of meat with a fancy name. If you visit Barranquilla, go there BUT make sure you have a reservation.

This was a welcome respite from a long work trip. I had heard that it was hard to get reservations - luckily a work contact is a long time friend of the owner. Fabulous steak. Incredible palmitas salad. Nice wine. Overall - excellent. Colombian beef always tastes amazing (and I say this as someone who lives in Texas). Highly recommended.
