I had not been to this restaurant for a long while, so I decided to have breakfast there and as always, was pretty satisfied with the portions, service, and price. When I arrived, there were about 3 or 4 customers, which made me a little worried. However, I was then pleased to see that the lack of customers meant that... More

I just to eat at restaurant twice a week for a very long time, food has been always good since then but always amaze me how they keep the quality intact. Presentation, flavors, temperature.... everything is damn good! Nice Colombian culture service! I love my country... 5 stars

This is a must stop for anyone traveling to Vieques. This is a food truck just past Sunbay. Very nice local family business. Highly recommend the stop.

There a crown jewel in NYC one of the best places to get a meal late night in NYC. The area is a little seedy but safe because of a strong police presence. But the food is well worth the trip.

It's sometimes crowded and not that fancy, but the food is really good, and you get lots of it for a really decent price. It's clean enough, but sometimes the service is bad, especially if you don't speak Spanish.

My son and my family came to this restaurant because my son's aunt took us here for his graduation lunch. My son wanted burgers so she brought us to this restaurant. The place looks small from the outside, but when you enter the establishment, its large. So we were tabled and the waitress, she asked what would you like to... More

It is clean and nice for how the area looks, and the waiters were nice and service was prompt for me and good. Food was tasty and enough, with a good portion, the fruit juice I ordered was made of natural fruits. The price is reasonable and I was satisfied, having visited Colombia, I was not aware it was for... More

Cositas ricas is a good place for a quick, late snack but no longer a favorite for a Colombian meal. Sadly it has changed over the years and quality of food has declined. I was there a couple of weeks ago and asked for the chicharron con arepa. The arepa was hard and the nuggets of pork belly dry with... More
