My friends and I went for a nice meal, instead we left angry and disappointed. I ordered one of their steak dishes, which was incomplete and the steak was charred when it arrived. I had to request twice from our serving waiter that the rest of my food be served, but nothing happened. So I had to get up and... More

The new staff are very rude. I'm disappointed, as it used to be a more friendlier place. I had left my table for a minute and when I return I find they decided to give my chair to someone else. Even after consuming more than £100 of food! Worst part is, they didn't even bother to give me a chair.... More

the staff was very lazy and didn't really seem to put effort in their work. They weren't very helpful ether. Also the customers in there seemed very intolerant to people who are not from South America. I have been to South America and the people were amazing to us. But it was the opposite in this restaurant. Some customers were... More

A family dinner in this nice restaurant! Lovely food, we loved all the starters, but even though we wanted to enjoy our mains all together, we couldn't because we got it in different times!

I'd never really had Colombian food before so it was interesting to try it out. I had a dish which was a mix of grilled meats. It was well seasoned and cooked. What stood out for this place was the really big portion (at least for the main course) which can be a good or a bad thing depending on... More

I been here for lauch ordering with a friend couple of starters and an asada meat and a fillet, nice sauces and starters but the fillet was really undercook (asked for a medium rare came as proper rare). Price is ok but as a sud american restaurant u can found much better places.

I was here yesterday with a couple of friends at 10 pm. I must admit I love this place, the music and the atmosphere is very traditional. Transporting you to the night life of colombia. However, we order 2 plates of Picada and after eating it. We all had stomach cramps, one of my friends went home as it hit... More

Amazing grilled steak dishes. This is the place to go instead of the characterless,overpriced tourist trap steak houses in Central London.

The food is great. However from my visit it would seem the best way to order is in Spanish, and the service can be a little slow sometimes. Still, it's a great place for a meal for lots of people.
