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

Miguel will make your experience last a life time. The service and the food is outstanding. I highly recommend making a stop when you are either in town or tourist for a delicious meal ahead of you.

Miguel is a very hands on owner, he cooks, serves, and makes you feel at home in his restaurant. He worked for many years for Mazzeo's Meat Market, so he has a very good understanding of quality meats and the right ingredients. He takes these abilities and blends them with his knowledge of homecooking Columbian dishes such as his empanadas... More

LaFogata is a very simple eatery with friendly and welcoming atmosphere. You will find Miguel, the owner, cooking, waiting on tables, and making sure your dining experience meets your expectations. The food has great homemade flavor, and variety of freshly made fruit juice is the best in the county. As a regular customer, I am confident in their future success.

We ordered more food than we needed, but it was all excellent. We were in Pittsfield and were tired of american food, (easy to get tired of) and wanted some home cooked food. Both dishes were excellent as well as the appetizers. My only complaint was the oil smell in the restaurant, the smell of cooking oil and fried food... More
