the place is awesome, with an open kitchen and just a couple of tables, everything ads to the experience, they use herb right from the garden, and the service is great, the food is to die for.

I had dinner in this place, and I was amazed. The attention, the ambiance and of course the food were all just perfect for a romantic dinner. To enjoy the company, the place and see how the chef made the food. And what I loved the most was that you choose what main ingredient you want, and they surprise you... More

The food was amazing, super nice and friendly staff, chef and owner. It's a different and charming experience. A closed door restaurant where you're the one and only client. Food is prepared while you enjoy a glass of wine and you are invited to trust the Chef's choice of menu for your meal and she does know how to surprise... More

In this new format of private dinners La Puerta offers an extraordinary experience. We had dinner New Year’s eve and it was amazing: the food, the setting, the atmosphere and the service. It is a must!

- Service was very slow. Even though we were the only table. - they refuse to make small changes to the menu to accommodate customer's needs simply because the chef would disapprove.... Really?!!! Who is paying?!!!! - Children unfriendly: no juices, no plastic cups for kids, no kids menu. So do not bring your kids along. - It took half... More

After reading on here that La Puerta was a low-cost place to eat, my partner and I decided to give it a go. Sadly, the entire meal was a disaster from start to finish. There were ants all over the table, chairs, walls and eventually over us. Ants dont normally bother me so we ordered drinks and took the menu.... More

After reading such good reviews for this place we decided to eat here. What a mistake. The first thing that caught our eye was the ants all over the table and chairs and the cockroach that scurried past during our horrible meal. The food is below average. We ordered pasta. I got the tomato pasta which was 99% supermarket pasta... More

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... More

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
