Exquisite dining in a beautiful boutique hotel in Pereria.
We are four fellow travelers to the beautiful Pereria area of Colombia, and were weary of the poor food offered by our hotel ( another review of that hotel to follow). We looked at Trip Advisor and found El Luger under gourmet food, and decided to try it for lunch today. What a marvelous delicious dining experience. The chef, Jorn Ludvigsen and his lovely wife, Nohra, prepared and served us our best meal in the 8 days we have spent in Colombia. Please give El Lugar a try if you ever come this way.

On the night of our arrival, we decided to dine on the hotel grounds and it is the best choice we could've made. Jorn & Nohra have put together an international menu with high quality and unique ingredients. It was an indulgent experience. Want something and don't see it on the menu? Ask! Jorn was very graceful and excited to whip something up that wasn't on the menu. The table linens were ironed and clean, the table well set up, and our server was awesome! Throughout the dinner, Jorn and his wife Nohra would come by and engage in conversation which just enhanced the overall experience. The food was superb and the service was top notch. Highly recommended restaurant that I hope to return to and share with family & friends!

Culinary Sensory Delight~!
Chef Jorn Ludvigsen & his staff will provide you with an exceptional culinary experience not typical to Colombia. He is Dutch and pulls spices and seasonings from around the globe to provide very unique partaking of breakfast, lunch, dinner or afternoon snack. Choices of wine are excellent. Range of Club Colombian beer/cerveza choices are cold and abundant.
