Good for: Large groups
Dining options: Reservations
Description: This restaurant was opened in October 2010 by a group of three Colombian sibilings. We like to say we serve Spanish food but most of our dishes are cooked and prepared with Colombian influence. We wanted to bring a little part of South America to the Ephrata and Lancaster area and educate people on our lifestyle. Please come by and enjoy something we are very passionate about. We have delicious appetizers which come out fast and are filling along with our plentiful entrees. We serve your typical dishes such as pork, steak, and chicken which are usually always accompanied by their rice and beans. These dishes are prepared with Colombian spices and seasoning, but are not spicy as many believe just flavorful. We have options for reservation, take out, BYOB, and large parties. TAKE A LOOK AT OUR NEW WEBSITE!!!Please feel free to call during business hours.

Awesome food. Make sure you try the "empanadas" for an appetizer. The empanadas along with the sauce are superb. I like the fact that everything cooked is fresh and full of Colombian flavor. Make sure you come with a good appetite since every plate served is huge. I drive about an hour almost every week to eat here and i don't mind the windshield time for a chance to eat this food. Staff is very welcoming and accomodating just like most people from Colombia. If you are in the area you must give them a try. You won't regret it.

We read the review and was excited. Staff was great. Decor was a little dated but was good. The food was bland. The house sauce definitely spiced things up but there just was not enough different tastes for us. Based on reviews, it may be that it just isn't our type of food. We were expecting more unique flavors.

Hello!

We are also disappointed we were not able to satisfy your taste palate but we are thankful for the honest review. We would recommend trying a new dish or asking the waiter what dish might enhance your experience with the flavors you are looking for. We really hope you come by again and give us a second chance!

I work in Philly and live in Ephrata. It is great to have a gem like Aromas Del Sur just around the corner from my house. I had the Steak with Eggs and Empanadas. How can you go wrong with that? My wife had the Talapia. Really enjoyed it. Will be back.
