Have been there over a year ago and again yesterday. And I loved it both times. There is a sign at the door that warn you that upon entering you are leaving Germany and they are quite right. The place is run by a very charismatic Columbian lady who makes sure her patrons get a warm welcome (although yesterday she came in towards the end of the evening).
The décor consists of many items of several countries of Latin America, resulting in a really colourful mix and it makes you feel at home really quickly. They play a mix of traditional and contemporary Latin American music, which adds to the ambience. The wait staff is friendly and they speak Spanish (great for me, I get to practise it!) and are really looking after you.
The food is great! Typical home cooking Latin American dishes with a thing or two of every country in Latin America. Fair enough, it's not the very same thing as being right there in Peru or in Colombia; but it saves you getting on a plane for 11 hours. And the twist of pan frying potato cubes for Papas a la Huancaina instead of serving boiled potato slices was actually quite good and the heart of the dish, which is the sauce, was spot on.
Something that actually adds to the Latin American Charm was the fact that they were out of two dishes on the menu and two kinds of soft drink, due to delays with the importer. And I say it adds to the charm, because I can't remember a single restaurant in Peru that hadn't run out of a thing or two on the menu! (See, authentic!)
Depending on the evening, it may get quite full, so it's best to phone ahead and reserve.
All in all it is a worthwhile experience and it makes for a memorable evening and it won't break the bank (as long as you can be relaxed of one or two things not going completely as planned; but you are leaving Germany upon entering the restaurant after all...)
