This was a strange meal. I ordered a Cajun-style shrimp dish and it was pretty weak. At an entrée price the dish included six very small shrimp that were overcooked. The sauce was quite bland. Very disappointing. Fortunately, the fried tilapia my wife ordered was huge and delicious. In fact, I think we both agreed it was the best fried... More

Driving through Sarasota and stopped here for a bite to eat. Very clean cute little place. Very good service and prices are amazing! Had the Wednesday Special, Pulled Beef, Rice, Salad and cooked plantains. Good portions. Next time in Sarasota will return here.

There's not to many Spanish restaurants in Sarasota. However, there's no need for another. Excellent food. Service a bit slow, but worth the wait....

I ate a Bandeja Paisa and it was pretty good! However i ended up throwing up the beans later that night:( not sure if it was the fact that i over ate or if it was just the food! Not sure if i'd come back though

I first discovered Mi Tierra (on the "wrong side of Fruitville Road") on Hwy. 301 in Sarasota during a Tropical Storm. They had pots and buckets all over the place because their roof was leaking everywhere. But I sensed I was in the right place when I noticed I was the only non-Spanish-speaking patron in the restaurant. I love finding... More

If you're looking for authentic Colombia food, please stop here. I won't lie, from the outside, the place looks super sketchy, but when you walk inside you'll feel right at home. The food is so excellent and the service is great. And in true Colombian fashion, they give you alot of food. And prices are totally decent. Stop here for... More

This is a small family restaurant serving great Columbian and Cuban foods. This is not your chain food stuff, so don't expect that. Nothing fancy, but a must try to get away from the same old stuff. We have been here several times, but not for at least 5 years and nothing has changed, but maybe a buck high on... More
