We had such a great experience at another Colombian restaurant nearby, so we wanted to get Colombian food again on our last night. Here, we ordered some of the signature cocktails, a few appetizers, as well as a few main dishes. We were even able to order Pisco Sours, a drink I haven't had since I was in Peru. The... More

My wife and I stumbled onto this restaurant our first night in Miami. We were strolling along Washington Ave in South Beach looking for a place to have a drink. A nice little bar with a cool vibe. We sat at the bar and had some great Mojitos. They really know how to make them perfect. 1 turned into like... More

We recently ate here again and the food was just not as good as I had remembered. It is something different and the service is pretty good, but the portions are small and basic. We ate here a couple times over the years and normally went during happy hour so that at least our drinks were at a discount which... More

Been there with a coupon. Restaurant offering dishes from various Latin American locations. Starter consisting of marinated octopus, mixed up with potatoes and vegetables. Main courses: a shrimp and squid casserole with rice and fried bananas (purportedly Chilean) and some Venezuelan dish with white fish (whose name I can't remember), mixed up with rice, muscles, shrimps and squids. As for... More

Superb South American resto on Washington Ave! Loved the 6 ceviche assortment beautifully presented in wee shot glasses. Followed with a selection of 7 tapas - delicious! Black beans, mussels, shrimps, extremely tender steak strips with chimmichurri (I like it more acidic, so I added more lime juice), fried artichoke with shaved Parmesan (awesome! Never had this before. It was... More

We were not planning to eat here and our initial impression was that this is mainly a bar. However while checking the menu we were talked to come in and we decided to try. We were not convinced until the food came and it was overall great: tasty and good display. Interior is quite dark and it was not easy... More

We ordered a variety of foods from Columbia, Venezuela and Peru. Everything was excellent. The food fresh and the service was prompt and steady. the Bases paisa, the panelling suction, the empanadas to the soup and cheese plate were excellent. Priced right with great atmosphere.

This is kind of a dive bar but has excellent tapas, reasonable prices, great drinks and service. We had a tapas special for 2 for $35. and LOVED the corn, beef and chorizo.
