I ate a fried fish with french fried and rice. It was the best fish meal I've eaten since I arrived to the U.S.

These folks are soccer fans....restaurant is decorated with soccer shirts from around the world, but don't be distracted, you have come here to eat Latin food. The food is like homemade and there is quite a variety. Lots of things on the menu that I had not eaten before, but that is what makes a restaurant interesting.

This restaurant is not an elegant or fancy one. However, the food is very good for Tampa, as I have not been able to find a great Colombian restaurant in the area. It is reasonably priced and the service is friendly but not really that good. The order was taken , food was delivered and I had to get up... More

We took a family trip down to Madeira Beach in April and spent a day in Tampa. I wanted to find a "different" restaurant, so Monserrate stuck out at me. The sangria was delicious! If I was kid-free I would've indulged in more than one glass. I really loved the plantain chips, although no one else at my table was... More

Decided to venture to Hillsborough Ave to try this Spanish restaurant. Glad we did, My Cuban liver and onions were very tasty and my mom/s Cuban sandwich was good but messy. Also they used pulled pork on it. My black beans and rice were delicious as my mom's fries. The wait for our food was a little long. Glad we... More

Everything from the friendly and personal staff to the perfectly cooked food. Empenadas and yucca remind me of my nana's. Steak and spanish sausage were amazing. Some of the best hot salsa I've had. The portions are perfect to split and will no doubt stuff you to the brim. Prices are reasonable and cheap. We had a groupon, which I... More

I was pleasantly surprised with this restaurant - the food was delicious and the portion size very large. Also, it is very cheap for the quality you get and looks very authentic (it makes you feel like you are actually in Colombia).
