Solid steak choice, serving portions are well worth the price. Wait times are usually a bit long, especially on Mother's Day (duh).

I was flying solo on my way to the Keys, but wanted some good Cuban food for lunch. So glad I found this restaurant. I was dressed in jeans and sneakers, having just gotten off the plane, but they welcomed me with no problem. It is a bit upscale, so I was not sure of the dress code. I had... More

Went with my girlfriend. The service was nice and there was live music. Beautiful dining area with a fountain inside. The steak was delicious and it came with unlimited sides! It was incredible price too.. Drove all the way from West Palm for it, and worth it!

This place is a very authentic Nicaraguan restaurant. The churrasco here is to die for and the gallo pinto is flavorful (If you're hungry try the Big Daddy). The ambience is like a farm chateau with pillars, wall painted mural and fountain in the center. Try it, you won't be displeased.

Had no idea what I was walking into... Even though we did not have a great table and could have, I decided to give this place almost the highest score... By no means does this mean that it was perfect, but need to recognize the quality of the food, service, decor and ambiance... Went for lunch on a weekday and... More

Description
For the last 25 years, our Latin American restaurant has specialized in serving authentic Nicaraguan and Central American style cuisine to the area. Our house special and most popular dish, the churrasco which is a tenderloin meat filet, is accompanied with our favorite chimichurri sauce, gallo pinto and sweet plantains. We don't stop there, we also have chicken and seafood available. If you're looking to satisfy your sweet tooth, our tres leches dessert is a crowd favorite. Soaked in three different kinds of milks and topped with marsh mellow like heavy cream, it is sure to put a nice cap to a wonderful meal. We've continued to be a great family place to dine with live music on weekend. If you're looking to host a special event with a small or large group we can accommodate you. We can easily hold 80+ people at our restaurant. Come see us today, we look forward to having you as our guest. Bienvenidos!
