We have eaten at this local, Columbian restaurant on several occasions. Our entrees were hit and miss in terms of flavor. My husband's shrimp dish was overly fishy smelling as though the shrimp were not the freshest. It deterred from the rest of his dish....More

This was an unexpected treat. Everyone working at Aromas was friendly and helpful. Taking our own alcohol was actually a big savings and easy. We had a relaxing and enjoyable evening and appreciated the opportunity to "visit" Colombia.

The meal we had was very good. The staff was very nice. Only concern was it took a little longer than we expected for the food to arrive.

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.
