Had the tostones and guac, cheese arepa and plantains. Everything was great. The guac especially was really tangy and fresh. It was great to sit outside, but the inside of this place is really cool - little touches like palm trees and netting. Service was...More

Great place for a Columbian meal. We came here for lunch over Christmas week. They were playing Star Wars which was great. The waiter even let us choose which of the Star Wars movies we wanted to watch. Pretty great. The Arepa vegeteriana was awesome....More

Our server, Eva, was so helpful in directing us to an authentic Colombian meal. The food was delicious and so reasonably priced. This is BYO and there is a corking fee, which worked very well for us. Try it, you'll like it!

This place has good Colombian food and drinks. However, they do not serve alcoholic beverages. This is a BYOB, so bring your beer or bottle and sit there and drink and wait for your meals.

A refreshing experience. It's different, but familiar enough to please even the non adventurous. I had the steel city arepa. It was the best pulled pork I've probably ever had. Lots of flavor without being covered in sauce, and the accompanying sauces they serve on...More
