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!

The food was delicious! My wife and I had a date night and wanted to try something new. We stopped in based on recommendations from a friend and we found the quality of food to be delicious!! We were told this is authentic food. If this is a sign of the tpe of food in Columbia, then I'm moving. LOL.... More

The food was good. It really depends on taste. I expected it to be a little more spicy, but it was not. Like a little kick to my food. Something that makes me say Wow. However, the servers and rest of the staff was very nice and friendly.

Thank SaltLife70
