Corner restaurant on Tyler St. Family owned. Caring service. Broad menu. We started with empanadas and guacamole. Fresh and tasty. Entrees were plentiful and well-prepared. Service was with a smile and good suggestions. A place to return to soon.

The food was excellent. I had the Chicken and rice. The server was brand new, so we had to be a little patient with the service. Anything she could not answer, she got us an answer for from someone else there.

This is truly a rare find! A restaurant that year after year never disappoints! This is one of my favorite restaurants - it is clean, Miguel makes the most scrumptious Columbian specialties and the prices are reasonable. My favorite is the steak and onions and it is perfect every time - I get extra maduros and one dinner can last... More

Small restaurant, low key and unassuming but charming atmosphere, friendly staff. Like others recommended, the guacamole appetizer, arroz con pollo, and tilapia in garlic sauce were all great. Flan with caramel wonderful too. Nice choice of beers from Mexico and South America. Plantain chips that come with dinner were something I'd never had before, and were delicious. Salads that come...

I'm not sure where the bad reviews come from. Maybe the people have never tried these flavors before? Yes, the restaurant is a little off the beaten path and the inside isn't anything to write home about (my guess is they do a fair amount of take out?), but the FOOD is GREAT! The waiter we had was friendly and... More

My daughter and son-in-law selected this restaurant for dinner prior to attending a show at Great Barrington Stage Company. They have friends in Costa Rica and were there on their honeymoon and once since. The restaurant appeared to be clean and was typical of small town restaurants. The food was delicious. This is real "spanish" cuisine - similar to what... More

Don't listen to negative reviews just try this place, you will be back, some of the sauces and spices and meat, are just perfect. Beer is awesome too and some drinks they have from south America. I just love this place thank you for sharing your culture and great food with us here in the Berkshires.

I have no idea how this restaurant is still in business. The food is not good by any stretch of the imagination and is overpriced to add insult to injury. The restaurant is in a not-so-desirable part of town and the restaurant itself is rundown, dirty and has zero aesthetic appeal. If you want bad, overpriced food in a terrible... More

We are sorry for your bad experience, we are very proud to say we've been in business for over 10 years. Our customer say that our portions are "exaggerated for the price". As for the restaurant being in a "not-so-desirable part of town and being rundown, dirty and having zero aesthetic appeal", you may have us confused with another latin... More
