One of the best Latin restaurants we ever been. They have amazing food selections and great customer service. I Personally Iike the sopa de Mariscos - the broth is super tasty and not fishy at all. Frozen margaritas is delicious! Empanadas, Fried snapper and garlic...shrimps and steak are few of our favorites in this restaurant.More

Went there with my family. The initial impression was confusing because you have to order and pay fir your food first and then seat. This provided very little time to go over the menu. There were two cashiers but it seems every customer was having...difficulties ordering. Once seated everything went smooth. You get your own sodas. Appetizers came out quickly and food too. Food quality was exceptional but for $23 for a churrasco I was expecting a bigger piece of meat.More

It’s been a while since we’ve eaten here, but it was good to see that the charm of the restaurant and the taste of the food hasn’t changed for worse. We really enjoyed the taste and portions of the food as well as the variety...of options from different Latin countries. The staff was very attentive despite the day being incredibly busy. I will definitely be visiting here more often.More

The food at this restaurant was amazing! They have empanadas from multiple Latin countries. We had the Venezuelan, Columbian and regular empanadas and the Yucca fries. They were all amazing. The restaurant was very clean and tables were socially distanced. They also had an outside...patio area open. All of the staff members were super friendly and helpful. There was a slight language barrier when ordering and we had to point out our orders from the menu.More

We ordered food for 3 people and to go margaritas What I got when i initialy went to pick up was food for one person and a mason jar of what i THOUGHT was a margarita. I had to go back to get the rest...of the food. When we got back to the hotel, my steak, was decent, not fantastic but hit the spot. The rice is good. The tostones, stay away. Absolteuly terrible, like cardboard and no flavor. My mother's chick was not good. It was very rubbery and chewy and out of precaution she chose not to eat the rest of it. She ended up just eating rice and beans. The carnitas was good and you do get a lot of food for the price. The margarita was not. I ended up with some sort of lemon flavored drink with carbonation and a very artificial sweetener. My mother is allergic to alcohol and tasted it and she was totally fine but said the same to me, whatever it was, was awful. I absolutely did not get a margarita. I did reach out to the restaurant but no one has answered me in more than a week. After paying 17 dollars for lemon fizz and rubbery chicken, my next step is to dispute the charges. Also, I grew up in south Florida. If you are looking for authentic Spanish food, this is not it based on what i ate. The only thing i would recommend is the pork. The chimichurri steak was decent.More

Wow really disappointed with the turnaround at this restaurant. This was one of my favorite restaurants and each time I come to Florida, I make it a point to visit this restaurant multiple times. However they are getting sloppy. The wait time to get your...food is close to 30min. The wait time to get served is 30min. They don’t enforce the mask rule or have any for customers who come in without a mask. We ask for take out trays and there was a roach in the tray. We addressed this to the manager who didn’t show any concern or even apologize. Her response was the trays just got off the truck. We felt very uncomfortable and now we doubt their cleanliness to preparing food or following COVID guidelines and protocol. We will not be returning to this establishment.More
