Rated 4 out of 5 by from The empenadas are so good next time I will order several with a side of rice and eat that as my meal. Also the guyabana drink is very good. Enjoyed the plantain chips as complementary appetizer. Sweet plantains and salsa are delicious also!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The food was very good and loved the plantains (both the sweet and green ), the plantain chips served before meal was different and had good flavor with the dipping sauce. main meal was chicken - very tender and juicy, Salad was fresh. The salmon meal was plentiful with 3 more green plantains and a generous helping of fresh vegetable. Servers were friendly. will definitely eat here again and try the steak next time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from We got there 40 min before closing and while we were eating apparently they were in a rush to leave because they start mopping with a strong cleaner that we could feel in our mouth and i told politily the girl that was cleaning is she could stop mopping while we eat because the smell of the cleaner was too strong and then she had an attitute with us,seh stopped cleaning around us but was still cleaning another area of the room. The smell was strong that we lost our appetite and have to leave. I won't go back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from We had never had Colombian cuisine before. The waitress did a good job recommending some traditional dishes that we ended up ordering. The food was really good, I'd recommend trying this, particularly if you're in the mood for some beef.
