Superb cuisine ...

As we entered the place, immediately you'll be enamored by the simple yet cozy ambience. The food was awesome, from its texture to the taste. It is an experience not to be missed.

A friend and I made reservations for dinner after doing a little research on the place. We weren't disappointed. Good service, live music and variety in the cocktail menu. We were expecting small plates and ended up taking home half of our food. The Creme de Camarones was outstanding. Everything else we ordered was tasty, but the soup is what... More

Went here while on vacation with 3 of my friends, all of us in our early 20s from NYC. This place has amazing spanish food and the wait staff was great as well. They gave us a complimentary appetizer as soon as we sat down and on top of that we ordered the empandas, which were amazing and a must... More

When ever I want to talk with my friends and listen to some great music I come here. The atmosphere can't be beat and the food is superb. I always order the wings and plantains. My friends ordered the patacones and they were divine. It's my favorite place for Colombian food.

We ordered Curassco, Seafood mix with rice and the bottle if red wine. Steak was so tasty! Seafood was marvelous! But they do not have semi-sweet wine, only dry, and the service cost 18%

One of my favorite restaurants in South Beach! I always come back here whenever I'm in Miami. The food is delicious and so are the drinks. It's a cute lil spot on Washington Ave. The staff is friendly and attentive. Although the last two times I've gone back, they seem to be always out of arepas which is what I... More

The place has a cozy atmosphere, as its louge provides a closer and inviting approach to the customers. I recommend a typical refreshing Colombian drink made out of beer and juice - it's very tasty!

I started with the shrimp and corn chowder....absolutely delicious. Then, I had the house special which included rice and beans, skirt steak and pork bellies. It was cooked well but thought it could use a little more seasoning. My husband had the whole, deep fried snapper. The presentation was beautiful but again a little lackluster for our taste. But all... More
