The best way to enjoy downtown Hot Springs is Rolandos outdoor patio. It is situated on the side of a mountain with flagstone patio and lights in the trees. They have live music Thursday -Saturday which is what makes this spot a definite go to place.

We had tried to eat here a couple of times and wait was too long. So we had a reservation. 3 out of 4 of us didn't like it. My wife's shrimp was not fresh. Maybe a bad night because of the Derby business. Our waiter must of had tables inside & outside because he would disappear for 20 mins.... More

Was recommended by another tourist. Was not disappointed! Friendly waitress. Good food ! I had the fish tacos and my husband had the pork quesadillas . The presentation was beautiful and the unique flavor was worth the higher prices than the other Mexican fare in town. Our 9 yr son had the chicken strips. Not your usual deep fried but... More

Food was excellent. My husband had a sampler of 3 things. All 3 were good. The tilapia tacos were excellent. Finished off our lunch with a piece of rum cake. Yum! It was a beautiful day and the patio is a perfect place to eat.

We love to vacation in Hot springs and every trip includes at least one meal here. Ask for the back patio area, if you didn't know it was there it would likely escape your experience.

Loved the tilapia and chicken dishes prepared with mojo (garlic) and Cuban spices. Good "top tier" margaritas but the Cuban Mojitos are even better. The flaming cheese dip was a real let down. The cheese is really good, but there was almost NO chorizo sausage or green onion - and the cheese was NEVER melted so we had to literally... More

The food was delicious! We loved the corn and black bean dip. The service was awesome! We ate upstairs in the 20' and 30's. The drinks were good too! The special margarita was so refreshing!

Was recommended to us by a staff member at Quapaw Bathhouse and sounded interesting so we went. Dined upstairs which is decorated to be speakeasy-like. We wife and I were excited to be able to sit down and enjoy some South American food, however, the menu seemed rather limited in variety and choice-there are a lot of dishes that seemed... More

Lots of ambience. We ate outside which is very attractive with all the trees lit. Loved the food. It is not Mexican food so don't expect it to be like what you've had before.
