“fab small authentic South American restaurant -- our new favourite”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2010

we've been twice to this small (4 tables) restaurant and been impressed both times. not easy to find (near Rocky's) but worth finding it!

great value -- the food is excellent and the service most attentive.

we've had
beef empanadas ($6) -- big, full of flavour and fresh
humitas with Chilean style salad ($5) -- delicate corn with delightful seasoning (mashed corn seasoned Chilean style wrapped in corn leaf)
Gallo Pinto ($14) -- generous dinner, wonderfully seasoned (red beans/rice, tri-tip beef, plantains, 2 eggs, avacado, yucca, tortilla)
Torta mil hojas ($5) -- a wonderful dessert, pastry with caramel and coconut, not too sweet, just perfect end to a meal.
menu is diverse without being overwhelming.
they have delivery and cater.

NOT your average Mexican-style restaurant -- it's much, much better (and Chilean).

the fresh salsa is a welcome departure from the usual salsa offerings.
Los Abuelos is our new favourite dining spot -- discover for yourself.

a word of warning for those who don't tolerate heat well -- they aren't really air conditioned, so if it's super hot outside, it will be fairly warm inside. but eat something with some heat in it and you'll enjoy the experience even more.

open Tues-Thurs 11-8pm Fri-Sat 11-9pm closed Sun/Mon
