Our party of five dined here recently, with three picky eaters among the group, and all five left extremely satisfied! The Latam Grill items were excellent - steaks were ideally cut and cooked, and the organic chicken with goat cheese was melt-in-your mouth perfection. The House Specialty Maqueca De Camaron had amazing flavor, and even our pickiest eater cleaned her plate of Chicken and Cheese Quesadillas.

We also shared a half-pitcher of white sangria, and two desserts - the flan and the banana/peach/cheese stuff pastry. All highly recommended.

The only tip to offer is to ask the waitstaff for guidance if you have any spice-adverse diners in your group. The menu is NOT well-marked to indicate which dishes have heat (and how much heat...) and we were (happily) surprised when some of our dishes arrived spicy.

Discovered this place by accident while exploring CocoWalk and not finding anything interesting. We had to wait at the bar for an outside table and the bartender was great-- made me a tropical drink that was delicous and potent.

Tried the Norma's salmon entree, which now ranks as the best salmon I have had, and believe me I have had many. The fish is atop a bed of perfectly prepared chunks of sweet potato, spinach and heart of palm. The sauce is lime butter. Wow.

Service was excellent here and it was a fun atmosphere with good people watching.

If you like South American style food ( it seems to have a little "heat" in most dishes ) and especially their ceviche and fish dishes, this is the place for you. Sit outside if you can and watch the sidewalk traffic - interesting to say the least. The portions are generous and the desserts are a real treat and the wine selection good.

I had not tried ceviche before so I got a couple, the peruan (with white fish) and the oriental (tuna with sesame). They were equally tasty. I was in the mood for a burger and ordered the jaguar that came with a stack of homemade chips and onion rings.
There were several dinner entrees I would like to try next time.

Ceviche, as a friend of mine says, is becoming in many places "the new sushi." Restaurants specializing in the exquisite potential of the South American dish are popping up everywhere. Jaguar seems legitimate enough in its Latin connection. The fish was fresh, the ceviche variations good, yet uneven, and the service very friendly. The place is so successful that I wouldn't expect it to up the ante... It is very good as it is, but one cannot help thinking that " great" is within reach.
