Finally got to eat here last night and it was really good.I had the Osso Buco and it was falling off the bone tender and really flavorful.My wife ordered the Shredded beef plate with rice,beans,avocado,plantains and a fried egg and her least favorite was the...shredded beef as it was a little tough.The drought beer selection is on point and of course the Mimosas were outstanding.More

Thank you for your comments! The pabellon crillo is prepared traditionally so we understand that it can be a little tougher for american standards. We are thrilled you enjoyed everything else! Come back again soon!

We had a fantastic dinner with this small family owned restaurant. We enjoy dining with family owned places, doubly so because these folks had to relocate from Venezuela. But the food has to be good, and they hit it out of the park. We split...three dishes, the avocado stuffed with shrimp and a spicy aioli, a beef carpaccio appetizer and the lobster tail with noodles. Each was delicious and unlike anything else we've found in Little Rock. Give them a try!!More

I have been to this restaurant twice. Once in October 2020 and then in late December. I'll start with positive aspects. Wait staff and management are super nice. Very helpful. Mojitos are good. Average aspects are the food. I have not eaten anything remarkable there...including appetizers, soup, and dessert. The negatives are organization and atmosphere. Both visits seemed to catch them unprepared. The last visit included 3 "we don't have that tonight" and we were the first (not the last guests) of the evening. The atmosphere is terrible. Dark, dingy, unorganized. Lights did not work because they didn't have lightbulbs in the sockets. There is a giant "junk" table in the middle of the room. No one wants to see your napkin folding table and takeout prep area. Move it to one of your back rooms.More

I went here with my husband on 12/9/2020. We ate dinner and were seated inside. There was one other table inside and they were related to the staff. The table and staff were belligerently drunk. We ordered a bottle of wine, appetizer, two entrees and...dessert to share. Our total was 143. The food was very good. The lamb was a little dry, but covered in sauce. The lobster was just slightly overcooked, but overall very good. We really wanted to enjoy our time. One of the servers, could be a manager, took several shots where we could see. She was singing loudly and poorly along with the music playing. She came to our table several times and it was off putting. Her father was the bartender and he was also drinking, though not so belligerent. Our server also took shots with the other server/possibly manager. All of the staff was drunk, loud, and made our experience unenviable. They kept apologizing, and said we were getting the real experience. We were very disappointed in our visit. Which is terrible because the food was some of the best we have had in Little Rock. If you don't mind an obnoxious and drunk staff, this is the place for you. We will not be going back.More

What a great place. Lexus was our waitress and she was perfect. The mango mojitos (Lexus recommended 1/2 sugar with mango and she was right) were outstanding. We consumed a pitcher. Pantano Frito (fried semi-sweet plantains) were outstanding. The caprese salad was a notch above...most and the quesillo (dessert custard almost like flan) was delicious. We shared the paella and it was good but not the highlight that the others were. Go. Enjoy a taste of Venezuela.More

This is the second time I been to this restaurant and when I tell you that everything was delicious 😋 from start to finish believe it, You must must try it , the pasta is fresh , fresh ingredients, cook just perfect . Took my...coworkers and they all love it and talking about it at work. Kudos to the waitress and bartender everyone there it’s so nice . And then the chef comes out and asks you if everything was fine . I can’t wait to go back my grandkids ate everything, the vegetables soup they gave us was delicious 😋 they ate it too and they are picky eaters .

Great diverse food options. Everything is cooked to order, so it takes a little longer but it is worth the extra wait. Primarily a Spanish focused place, but several good things from around the world.
