Food was very good... Roasted beet salad and the trio of empanadas were tender and delicious. The banana plantains and salsa was outstanding. My disappointment was not with the food but with the service. After 20 minutes, my friend had to flag down the hostess so we could place our order. The wait time was ok, but once our food... More

Bit of unusual (for us) food in Norwalk. friendly service, We tried (and shared) a number of starters and main courses. The plantain and salsa that they start you with was quite good - but don't fill up on that. The fish was good and the skirt steak was great. Different types of empanadas as starters work well for sharing.

This restaurant continues to serve excellent and consistently good and imaginative cuisine. The plaintains that are served when you are seated are a great salty accompaniment to a caipirinha, sangria, mojito or any of the drinks. We had an assortment of empanadas for a starter and the dinner specials -- pork tenderloin wrapped in bacon and the branzino perfectly cooked... More

Six of us enjoyed our Sunday brunch. Food presentation and flavors all excellent. They may have been understaffed, the hostess appeared to be only person waiting on tables with serving asistance from kitchen staff. Only sore spot was how long it took to get and pay our bills.

Once you pass through the cloud of cigarette smoke from the tables right outside the front door, at 6:30 PM you have to push you way through a very active bar scene. The restaurant section was relatively empty when we arrived but our co-diners, who had been there before, asked to be seated where it was quiet. We were seated... More
