In the charming El Prado neighborhood of Barranquilla, the SteakHouse Chez Ernest stands as a testament to love and culinary passion. This gastronomic sanctuary was born on October 10, 1960, when the visionary Ernest Reiss Van Leuven and his beloved wife, the charming Liliane Madelaine Poirel of French descent, combined their dreams and skills to create an unparalleled culinary legacy.

Ernest's culinary journey began in the kitchens of Lyon, France, where he wove the threads of his destiny. His culinary art conquered palates in corners as distant as India, Canada, France, New York, Panama and Colombia, among other exquisite destinations.

After years in the Basque Country, gastronomic epicenter,

Georges leads the kitchen today and fuses flavors from his travels. His creations are the pinnacle of refined techniques and a tribute to the family legacy.
