Good Choice

This place is tiny but the food is authentic, well - priced, and the service is efficient. Portions are large and they do not skimp on the sides.

My wife and I had lunch here quite by chance. It is in a strip mall in back of a Hertz rental agency. The food is really very good, service is friendly, and prices are very reasonable. There isn't too much atmosphere but it is a very good cafe. The food is outstanding and very different from the normal food... More

I lived in Miami for many years and ALWAYS come back to eat here! I was just here on vacation 2 weeks ago. Great food. Huge portions and friendly service. I always recommend this place to friends that are visiting Miami. I so wish you had a place in Denver !

The sign at the entrance said "Please wait to be seated", we waited for over 5 minutes while they just passed by us. Then a lady screamed from afar to sit anywhere. So we sat. No menu's, no server, nothing. I had to stop a waitress that was walking by to ask for a menu, after 10 minutes I stopped... More

Found this place when directed by local hotel staff. The food was delicious and staff pleasant. It helps if you know some Spanish but some of the locals that we're eating there were gracious enough to give us their input. Fried yucca, and a shredded beef meal with plantains that were yummy. Finished up the meal with a cup of... More

Once again, Trip Advisor pointed the way. We had the empanadas for starters and we knew we made an excellent choice for dinner. Served hot with a spivey sauce made it perfect. WOW! My wife had the Patacoń a la Marinera $11.99..really good with wonderful sauce. I had the Patacoń de Pollo al Gratin $9.99 and our waiter said it... More

A quiet restaurant a 5 minute walk from the nearby Hampton Inn. Obviously used a lot by locals as well. Looks family run, and they were very helpful with 2 Brits who couldn't even understand the menu! We had the small meals selection, equivalent to Tapas, and it was delicious, if we lived anywhere near we would return, thank you.

It was a ok lunch. Plenty of Colombian restaurants in Miami with batter fare. Disappointed when got the bill and gratuity was included even though it was 4 of us. This brought lunch bill to over $70 (no alcoholic drinks) They lost me forever. Highlight? Empanaditas and Pineapple juice with Mint (Piña con Yerba Buena)

I recommend the plantain served with meat and mushrooms. It's delicious. It's a good place to have good Colombian food in Miami. The portions are very big and the prices are reasonable. If you're craving Colombian food (or want to try it for the first time) it's definitely worth a visit.

Great food, lots of options, and great service! Try the empanadas as a little appetizer. We really enjoyed the meat and beans and the plantains were amazing, fried or sweet! We ended up eating here twice on our trip - it was the first time we had experienced Colombian food and we enjoyed it!
