The food was amazing and the service was great! Must try their chicken soup has to be the best I've had in a long time. Their lunch specials are also very good and very inexpensive.

No-frills restaurant with fresh seafood and delicious Latin dishes. The natural juices is the best part of this place. And the desserts are top notch. Portions are big and can be easily shared. Great for families!

They have great Colombian food. There is a quick take out counter or sit down and have a full service dinner. On Sunday they make ajiaco a special chicken and potatoe soup that is typical in Bogota.

I have been coming to this particular location for a while now because the food is always really good. The girls are always so nice. Only gave it four stars because they are kinda slow waiting people.

Me and my family really enjoyed this restaurant. We just happened to be driving by decided to stop in for 6:30 dinner. This is a large place with plenty of seating. The outside looks clean unapproachable. We found the inside to be clean we sat at a booht beside the window and there was even a small CLEAN children's area... More

I love Latin food. This is an excellent Colombian restaurant. Nice and friendly service. And the food is always good. I`ve tried almost everything on the menu and loved everything.

If it were only the food that is no good, you might be tempted by the fancy name ~ but there is no ambiance and arguably the worst service in Broward county.

The best Colombian Mondongo in Broward County. The empanadas with the home made Green Chile sauce is very good. Excelent service and flavors.

We always come here when we have visitors, family, friends to have a good meal that you know will not disappoint. Churrasco, chuleta callena, fried whole snapper, bandeja paisa... Just a few of the regulars we order. Never disappoints!

Thank Vaneelee
