“well recommended”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

Ordered' Pescado Margarita ' which is fish, mango salsa with coriander rice and some plantains.
The food was delicious. Loved the flavor in the rice, the presentation and the overall taste of the dish.
The staff were courteous and the service was very good. The interiors also has a good vibe to it, with neon color seats and wooden tables and chairs.

The only downside was the relatively dark restrooms

“Fantastic Find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

Found this restaurant on Washington Avenue after spending way too much money eating on Ocean Drive. What a pleasure it was indeed! We had the sampler platter for $29 which gave us a sample of 7 dishes, mojitos and a bottle of wine all for under $70 with tax and tip! Sure beats the $150-$350 meals on Ocean Drive.
The wait staff was friendly and they even bought me a shot since it was my birthday. Great location, great staff, excellent food. Not to be missed.

“Excellent authentic South American food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

Food was very tasty, but more importantly it was authentic. Ambiance was great. It was a great cultural experience.
