7/24/15 Great atmosphere

Ask to sit on the deck. It's another world! Great view, great food, and great music. This was our first trip. We asked a local and he told us to go to Rolandos and ask to sit on the Deck. It was so quiet and part of it was carved into the hillside. Wow! What a great experience!

We always try to stop at this little restaurant in the historic district in Hot Springs. This 1800's building has a cozy and intimate atmosphere. You can eat on the main level, upstairs or outside on the patio. We chose two entrees- Plato de Adventura and Pollo Bohemio. The shrimp was large, juicy and perfectly seasoned. The chicken was pounded... More

Wanted to sit outside, but it was simply too warm for us, so we opted to dine inside. Our meals were very good. The gentlemen waiting on us did a really good job. Some really good choices on the menu. It was a very convenient walk from our stay at the Arlington. Thanks TripAdvisor.

We were initially going to eat at fisherman's, but found out it was closed since it was already 8 PM so we decided to eat on the strip. We were pleasantly surprised when we were guided to eat at Rolandos. From the side walk it looks empty. Upon entering the restaurant we were told to go upstairs. The patio upstairs... More

We ate upstairs and enjoyed the 30's style, food was excellent, not huge quantities, but more forcus on quality, flavor was huge! They noted being famous for their mojitos, and they were excellent!!

Their back porch/patio is lovely. They have live music on weekends and they have Christmas lights (that look great when the sun starts to go down) wrapped around trees that cover the whole area. Love their Burrito and Salsa.

My friend and I had dinner here last Saturday night and sat on the outdoor, upper level and it was very toasty. They had a guy with a guitar signing and he was very entertaining. I think this place calls their cuisine, Latin, but those who are Latin food lovers, do not get your hopes up. Having managed Cuban restaurants... More

This was a delightful place. Unique quaint and excellent food and atmosphere. Food is from central and Latin America not your typical Mexican restaurant. Highly recommended.

I had Rolando's on a list of places I may want to eat while I was in town with my wife and this was confirmed when our B&B hosts recommended it. As others have mentioned, the patio is the place to be. We were fortunate to have somewhat cool weather for July when we were there and were shaded by... More
