I went the first-time and let me tell you I was very disappointed. I really was expecting more from this place; I order a sishkebabs mixt but it was terrible. I told the waiter and she didn't care. I will never come back to this place.

Before flying back home, I always order at least a dozen frozen chicken empanadas to take back! The ají picante sauce is a must with the empanadas which is hot... More

They take forever to serve your food. And when I say forever is FOREVER. Two hours to get your food and either is cold when you get it or they forgot your food. The food is delicious but the service is TERRIBLE!!! Worst service EVER!!!

It is definitely the best Colombian Cuisine Restaurant in Miami I´ve ever been to. Good touch, taste, environment and great service. 100% recommended. I ask for more branches in Miami and all over Florida.
