Not as good as it used to be

When I lived in Jackson Heights many years ago , this was one of my favorite places I would go with big meal and a nice dessert after that. Some all changed, not sure why but the meals arrived Luke warm , and there was not a single visit from the waiter , after he dropped off the meal !... read more

I invited my mom for lunch hoping this restaurant was a great place but guess what, it turned out to be horrible, first the waiter had an attitude, second the food was taking too long, "over 20 minutes" and when I inquired about the wait time they responded food is cooked fresh and prepared after the order is placed, !!!!...

were large and the food was good. Especially enjoyed the skirt steak. We were too full for dessert. The restaurant has been around for a long, long time, but this is the first time we tried it and we will be back. Waitress was very nice. Never had Colombian food before, but judging from the crowd, I would say that... More

My chicken was incredibly dry and my poor boyfriend got horrible food poisoning from his penne a la vodka. He threw up 15 times in 1 day. I called the restaurant and they said that they serve these dishes all the time and there was nothing they could do. On top of that, my boyfriend spent $80 on the meal... More

Went in and was directed to a seat by an indifferent girl. The waiter came and gave us a menu. After noticing that my friend and I were gay he ran off not to be seen again. The staff is made up of rude rude rude and homophobic small minded colombians. The food was way below average and not athentic... More

As it is custom every restaurant that I have been to in all countries I have visited as you are seated water first, bread... More

Nothing authentic here I have visited this place a number of times over the years and like most places to eat in NY it has become bland. Main entrees are way overpriced and desserts are awful! Apart from the live singer who is there every other weekend there is nothing to enjoy this is not a place you want to... More

It is! Surprising in Jackson Heights! Saturday is arroz con pollo day, and they run out early. I like the paella, but my boyfriend thinks it's dry. The sangria is nice. The environment is a little casual for a romantic date, but they maintain it nicely.

We visited this restaurant in the bustling neighborhood of Queens to try authentic Colombian empanadas for my hubby. We sat at the bar and had to wait a while to be served. Our waitress took our order but they were out of almost all sodas. I opted for nothing to drink and placed our food order. We had to take... More
