Delicious menu del dia - Edit

From its unassuming facadé and semi-formal dining area to the small walk-through tienda offering soy-based items and other products, El Huerto is a Barranquilla landmark of many years. Enjoy any of their weekly menu del dia lunches, typically served with soup, a hot entree, side dish, salad and beverage (tea), for about $12,000 COP. Shop the little tienda or enjoy a taste of the day's special dessert as you leave this hidden oasis of healthy options.

Pros: Clean, comfortable dining area, Friendly, attentive staff, Good prices and they deliver!

Cons: Tienda could offer more soy-based meats

Good food, awful service - Edit

We were really excited when we arrived at El Huerto - it has a lovely, shady courtyard with a fountain, which was perfect for lunch on a hot Caribe day - soup, seitan, rice and salad, plus a ridiculously sweet ice tea. Unfortunately, the service was the most notable aspect - as a person has commented below, the waiter was shockingly rude, refusing to provide us basic information (such as what was in the lasagna), slamming down our dishes as they arrived, glaring at us, etc.

Average food - Edit

To me, the food was average and uninspired. I went twice while I was in town and it was fairly busy both days. One of the days I went, it was Mexican day, with Mexican soup, brown rice, refried beans, pico de gallo, Mexican salad and a drink. The service was not friendly, and quite honestly, bordering on rude... maybe you'll have better luck. They only have a meal of the day... no menu to order from. They do have a monthly menu printed out and you can pick and choose which days you might want to eat here. I found a better place in Barranquilla and would choose that place over this one.

Pros: Location, Price good, Delivery available

Cons: Service not that great, Food not very tasty

decent - Edit

el huerto is a typical colombian vegetarian restaurant. not a large selection of vegan items, but some decent options. they also have a small health food store and a takeaway counter. the empanadas i sampled were excellent.
