They have a wide range of Latin American dishes. They have a lunch special for 15,95 that includes an appetiser, an entree and a beverage, which is a pretty good deal. We had a veggie empanada, papas criollas, ropa vieja and the veggie tacos. Everything...More

We were a party of 13 celebrating my birthday here a few weeks ago, and it was a regrettable experience. The food was OK, but the service was beyond terrible. The worst part is that the place wasn't even crowded! I can't imagine what it's...More

I had the Bandeja Paisa (Colombian Platter): grilled skirt steak, pork chicharron, white arepa, rice & beans, fried egg, maduros, avocado, cabbage salad. I recommend it although the pork was a bit dry, but tasty. Goes well with margaritas!

Great food, awesome drinks and fun atmosphere in hip Brooklyn neighborhood. There was something for everyone, even vegetarians would be comfortable and stuffed by the time they left. The only downfall to this restaurant was the oppressive heat in the dining room. We arrived dressed...More
