Delicious food, Great ambiance

We enjoyed a wonderful meal and drinks on a beautifully landscaped patio are with live music. Everything we ordered was so above par! Our group of 7 were impressed with every thing ordered! If you love shrimp, order the shrimp quesadilla's! You will not be disappointed!! I can't wait to go back!!

We have eaten here on many occasions and enjoyed our dinner on the 'treehouse' patio, along with live music and great food. However, we were disappointed when a table close to us lit up their cigarettes just as our food arrived. As the hostess walked by, I confirmed it was allowed???? I wish they would reconsider this policy and allow... More

This place was awesome! The outside patio was a wonderful place to sit and have a great time. The "Chamboritas" are our new favorite drink, and the quest flambado was to die for! Our server, Todd, was excellent, and we are going back tomorrow!

We were there on a Monday at lunch time. Promptly and pleasantly greeted. Did not have to wait for a table. Service was good. I had the enchiladas and they were delicious, served with a rice dish perfectly seasoned and tasting like Central America.

This is one of my favorite restaurants anywhere! Love the atmosphere and the food is delicious. Do not go expecting Tex-Mex; this food is South American inspired.

Recommended by a friend, we found Rolando's on our last night in Hot Springs. Definitely ask for the patio, the back wall is the cliff face of the mountain. Beautiful seating - it's very romantic and well, kinda magical. The food was pretty good, it isn't Mexican At. All. It was flavorful, not spicy. I can tell you, you'd better... More

Went for lunch with my wife on a Friday for lunch, sat at the upstairs patio. The patio had lots of character with trees and vines and stone, much better than a concrete slab and tables. Our server was attentive without being obtrusive, was very pleasant and joined in our conversation about Hot Springs when we invited him to. The... More
