Portions are Huge! Service is friendly. Very warm family atmosphere. Owner chef comes to your table to meet you & find out how spicy (or not) you'd like your food. Try one of their tropical fruit smoothies, too!

This was a recommended restaurant that was quite different. It seemed like a local place with a Colombian flare. The food was good but the service was slow especially since there were not many people in the restaurant when we arrived. It is BYOB. The...More

This restaurant was opened in October 2010 by a group of three Colombian sibilings. We like to say we serve Spanish food but most of our dishes are cooked and prepared with Colombian influence. We wanted to bring a little part of South America to the Ephrata and Lancaster area and educate people on our lifestyle. Please come by and enjoy something we are very passionate about. We have delicious appetizers which come out fast and are filling along with our plentiful entrees. We serve your typical dishes such as pork, steak, and chicken which are usually always accompanied by their rice and beans. These dishes are prepared with Colombian spices and seasoning, but are not spicy as many believe just flavorful. We have options for reservation, take out, BYOB, and large parties. TAKE A LOOK AT OUR NEW WEBSITE!!!Please feel free to call during business hours.
