Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This restaurant offers different international hispanic dishes with affordable prices in a clean modern atmosphere. A chicken soup $5.50; a media noche $7.25 ; a burger $9.75 + fries $2; a fountain drink $2.25. The sizes and amount will satisfy a big eater. They also have small bites (empanadas-arepas) which can be a great lunch. The churros are well made and super delicious for $3. We recommend this restaurant to American and International visitors and tourist because for the price you get good quality.

As other review said, if I could I would give them 6 stars not just 5. We were visiting the parks last week and discovered this place. We read the good reviews before hand, but we were not prepared to experience an excellent cuisine. We were so much in awe, that we asked the person that checked on us to send our compliments to the chef. She explained that their recipes were carefully crafted and studied to deliver the best experience. If you have never had latin food, this is the place to go. If you have had latin food, I am confident that this place has the best version of your favorite dish.

We went to eat breakfast here yesterday. What a wonderful experience. The food was great, we had the Jamon y Queso Omelet and Cuban Avocado Toast. It was way too much to eat for two people but oh so good. The prices were also very reasonable. I would recommend this to anyone that is within 5 or 10 miles of here for any of the three daily meals. We will go back again before we leave the area.

Based on reviews we expected a 5-star experience. You order and pay up front at the door. You can also leave a tip at the same time, not yet knowing how good the service would be. We ordered two drinks, an appetizer, and two entrees. We seated ourselves in the outdoor dining area. It was about 6:30PM on a weekday and not very crowded. After about 10 minutes a waitress showed up with one of our entrees, but not the other entree or our drinks. She seemed surprised that we had anything else on the order. We showed her our receipt and she went back and retrieved the rest of our order. The Mini Tequeños appetizer was very good. The salad was large and very good. But the Cuban sandwich was luke warm and kind of dry. The french fries were also luke warm to cool. We suspect the sandwich and fries were allowed to sit for a while before someone thought to deliver them to our table. Still, we would be willing to return and give them another chance. They were friendly, the menu looks interesting, and prices are very reasonable.

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.

Good value tasty breakfast. Service is fast and good coffee (don’t need Starbucks; lattes are good). Strange process in which the Hostess (she needs to smile) actually takes your order from the menu while you are standing in line... That does not make for a good first impression... We almost left, but glad we stayed since the food is good and reasonably priced. Good parking as well. Plus, they are actually friendly; just don’t smile enough... 😁

This restaurant is located down the street from the Downtown Disney area. It offers both some in and order out options for Latin food. It's medium priced and would do if you like to try Latin food with little to no spices. I myself found the food to be too bland and without enough salt. I was not impressed.

This is my third time eating at this restaurant! I was very happy to see that they were still in business since it had been 3 years since the last we were in Florida. The food is SO delicious, you order at the register, you’re given a number and the food is brought out to your table. Great space, great ambiance, great menu and AMAZING food! Highly recommend this restaurant.

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.

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.

So many choices, I wish we had come here twice on our trip. We got the beef and cheese Palua arepa, the chachapa (pork) handheld, fried yucca and tres leches cake. Omagosh, big portions and all so good. The beef and cheese in the arepa was so good and the cooked all day pork so moist and the chimichurri sauce drizzled on the yucca so flavorful. Im getting hungry just thinking about it all again. Wish we had a sofritos here. We ordered at the counter, took a table and food arrived in a timely manner as we sat in their lovely patio area. It was a great dinner.

This was a great lunch choice for our party of 10. We had little kids, teens and adults. There was something for everyone. You order at the register, then they bring the food out to your table. You can dine indoors or in the shaded outdoor patio. With the vast variety of food choices and beverages from various Latin American countries, we found it helpful to look at their online menu ahead of time. This kept us from holding up the line. A little Latin music in the background would have been nice.

The slow roasted pork is pure comfort food. Moist, well seasoned and fork tender.... yeah this is my new go to. I ordered the black beans and white rice and fried plantains as well. The beans were cooked and seasoned well and the plantains were a perfect compliment to the meal. There was also a small spring mix salad with some type of citrus vinaigrette that was a nice start. I highly recommend this place and I will definitely be back.

This place was an absolute gem for lunch with my family. We ordered a ton of small plates and dessert and they were all amazing. I was delighted to have 4 different chicken empanadas to sample, and they were all delicious. The staff was also really great. They were patient as we ordered a ton of different items and had a bunch of questions. They brought the food out promptly and checked on us during our extended lunch. And they had a nice spacious patio with a chill vibe. I will absolutely return next time I'm in town.

I recently had a small business dinner with some colleagues at Sofrito Latin Cafe in Orlando. We choose this as we wanted some local latin food and were staying at a nearby hotel. The hotel is located in a small strip mall, and was quite busy for a Tuesday evening. It's a sitdown restaurant, but you order your food at the counter first, and then have a seat and the food is brought to you. The menu is a great mix of latin american foods and drinks and there was a good selection of vegetarian options. They had a nice cocktail list of standard Central and South American drinks, and mine was delicious. All of the food was served quick and we really enjoyed everything we ate. My vegetarian meal was excellent (maybe a tad salty) but still really good. the service was friendly and the place just has a busy, friendly vibe. I would totally eat here again or recommend this restaurant.
