Met with a warm welcome. Service was amazing throughout. Food was expedited quickly. The flavors were just fantastic. Incredible find. From the Arepas, the corn, empanadas, skirt steak.. and the dessert- WOW!!! The Maracuya cocktail was refreshing and perfect for the occasion

We had lunch here last Saturday and everything was delicious and so different tasting. I also, had the best Pisco Sour I've had outside South America. The Tapas are very substantial, so I would advise 2 rather than 3 per person. A little bit pricy,...More
