Excellent place to taste and enjoy the pleasures of Latin food and drink. Everything we ordered was done to perfections and there was plenty to take home. The service was great and the outdoor patio is very comfortable.

You have to discount all the negative reviews based on price. It is upscale South American and you will pay twice what you normally pay elsewhere, but that being said- it is really great fresh South American. I got the steak with chimichurri sauce. The appetizers and desserts were great also. Great environment too. It is a Stamford mainstay.

I had dinner with three friends at this Latin American restaurant. I ordered the Pargo Rojo Frito - citrus mojo marinated fried whole red snapper for $27. I enjoyed this dish; the fish was nicely fried. The skin was crispy and the flesh was still moist and tender. The seasoning was also on point. I must mentioned that I also... More

This is a go-to place for my friends and me. The food is awesome and the chef is very creative. Love the Sangria too! We usually share dessert at other restaurants, but not here! Yum!

It sure looks a little dumpy from the outside but is festive on the inside. The real surprise is the quality of the food along with its presentation. When dinner arrives it looks like it came from a 4 star restaurant. The attention to detail and the look of each plate as it comes out of the kitchen is very... More

Restaurant recommended by hotel as I was craving a steak. Almost drove right past it as the neighborhood isn't the best. Took a chance and so happy we did. To my surprise grass-fed beef. Awesome steak, lots of flavor, potatoes and asparagus. Plantain chips with a homemade salsa. Very pleased. Didnt mind that the bill came to about $100 for... More

The music set the mood last Friday night for our girls night out. The drinks were superb. The food, seafood dishes, were spot on. I can't wait to try the place w my husband. I will def go back. Parking is tough but fortunately there is valet. Worth it though.

Very unique food and wonderful staff. Good if you are there just for drinks and appetizers or a full meal. Parking can be a hassle, but just use the valet. Not a big space, but we've had up to 6 - 8 people for dinner and it's still been great. More perfect, though, for smaller numbers, 2 or three friends... More
