Good choice

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

The food was also great. The 6 shot ceviche was tasty , highly recommended. We ordered the six tapas selection for diner. The corn,... More

Interesting menu and variety of South American and Latin cuisines including tapas, Peruvian drinks -a good pico sour. Live Colombian singer added to the experience. Our party including 3 vegetarians were very satisfied. Very reasonable prices, would definitely return.

The outdoor matre d usually annoys me but not at this place. He was helpful but not overbearing. We sat outside. The complimentary Tapas were delicious. We had the cheviche sampler, which was a great choice. Lots of food, lots of spirits (Sangria was great), relaxed atmosphere off of the main strip. Our waitress was from Columbia and she advised...

We dined here Valentines day, which was also Presidents weekend and the Boat Show weekend. I wanted some place off the beaten path which would have a different flavor profile. It definitely lived up the reviews. We did order the 7 tapas platter and we enjoyed trying new flavors. The beef was fantastic. We recommend the fried artichoke as well.... More
