“Upon entering you are leaving Germany”
Reviewed April 24, 2011

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...)

“We just wish we'd found this place sooner!”
Reviewed April 16, 2011

I found this restaurant by typing "Restaurant Stuttgart" into Facebook; Otherwise, I might never have stumbled upon it. It is a small restaurant, located in a very unassuming-looking location, somewhat resembling a bar/cafe from the outside. Knowing this, I had to enter a review so that others will not miss this great little restaurant like we almost did!

The staff was very friendly and accommodating, speaking German, Spanish, and English. A menu is also available that describes the dishes in Spanish and English as well. The staff were all native Spanish speakers, and clearly they were from the regions they were representing.

This restaurant has a little bit of everything from Latin America, with the exception of Mexico. The selections were very interesting, and the dishes covered many different tastes and styles. The drink selection also covered quite a few different Latin American countries. We each sampled (and shared) an appetizer and a main dish, and we each had a couple of drinks (and also coffees), and our billed totaled just under 60 Euro... very reasonable considering how much we consumed!

There was one "child's plate" on the menu, but it was not particularly diverse to that end, and we were happy to have made it a "date night" rather than having brought our children. If you have children who are not too particular about what they will eat, I think the restaurant would be family-friendly.

We finished off our meals with some very good "House Coffee", which had the added taste of a small amount of liqueur... very tasty!

The ambiance was colorful and fun and musical; the only drawback is that there was not a tremendous amount of seating, and the tables were fairly close together. However, we arrived on a Saturday night at about 6 p.m., and we had no trouble getting seating without a reservation. The place started to fill up at about 8 p.m. Parking was very easy, as it is on the edge of the downtown area, and there was ample street parking with metered parking.
