Empanadas are tasty. Menu is limited. Rice is plentiful for most choices. Service is prompt. If you like this type of cuisine you will be satisfied. We were looking for more variety.

Our latest visit was even better than the last. I had never had one of the steak entrees. Arturo recommended the flank steak dish and it was fantastic! So tender. Both appetizers were excellent too, especially the chorizo sausage. Great food, service and staff.

Visited Aromas del Sur recently with my Lady. The tremendous food, excellent service, and family atmosphere combined to make this a wonderful start to the evening. The ambience needs an upgrade otherwise I would rate this a 5 star restaurant.

Great gem of a little restaurant in Lancaster County, home of the Amish!! The food was fantastic, the service the same. Hearing a lot of Spanish being spoken added to the ambiance. We will be back!!

We had a lovely lunch together on a Sunday afternoon. Food was good and atmosphere ok. It is nice to see ethnic food restaurant in Lancaster County. A good diversion from the PA Dutch cuisine!

This restaurant was opened in October 2010 by a group of three Colombian sibilings. We like to say we serve Spanish food but most of our dishes are cooked and prepared with Colombian influence. We wanted to bring a little part of South America to the Ephrata and Lancaster area and educate people on our lifestyle. Please come by and enjoy something we are very passionate about. We have delicious appetizers which come out fast and are filling along with our plentiful entrees. We serve your typical dishes such as pork, steak, and chicken which are usually always accompanied by their rice and beans. These dishes are prepared with Colombian spices and seasoning, but are not spicy as many believe just flavorful. We have options for reservation, take out, BYOB, and large parties. TAKE A LOOK AT OUR NEW WEBSITE!!!Please feel free to call during business hours.
