The restaurant is well located. Ambient is good. The customer service is excellent. Portions are on the big side and prices on the high side.
The chicken chupe has a lot of chicken but also a lot of liquid. They should reduce the amount of liquid to do it heavier. Taste is good.
The “vuelve a la vida” is very tasty. Excellent for sharing.
The truffle French fries are excellent.
I did not try the huge parrilla but next time I will do it!
Milkshakes look yummy but also are pending for my next visit.

Seafood was great and service excellent but definitely the best dessert I have ever had in my life: The Bomb Venezuelan Sundae! The hard chocolate on top (which you great open with a toy wood hammer) opens up and hot chocolate fudge drips to the side of the brownies and inside the shake!! Delicious and great fun to eat as a group and feel young again like a child breaking open a piñata!!

Accommodation was fast and quick. Presentation of the menu is what you see when they serve you the real plate. All the the food recommendations where precise and what was offered.
Their strong are is on Peruvian and Venezuelan dishes, but they have plenty to choose from.
Personally I would recommend the Tuna Tataki and the Mozzarella Burrata quinoa.
I will commend Miss Vivian P.our waitress, who took care of us gracefully and with all details in place for us. don't look around, when you have such a good restaurant.

The negative: the restaurant is really loud, and cold, so the atmosphere is off. Another reviewer said this place was "nice and calm" and "without all the hustle and bustle." LOL. Not even close. Seating isn't comfortable either. Bartender can't make a vodka soda. It's difficult to self-park, and the restaurant itself only offers free valet, it doesn't have it's own parking area.

The good: the flavor of the food is delicious. Everything I've had has been delicious. the Tostones with the lomo are the favorites here, and the black beans - the black beans are so good! Staff is very friendly, everyone is really nice - and that goes a long way. A tip - the menu says that the steaks are only available in the Orlando, FL locations, but that's not accurate. The steaks are available in this location! We had one, and it was phenomenal.

“The Winner” is by far the best Mac & Cheese I’ve ever had anywhere and NO, I’m not exaggerating. This was my first time eating here and I highly recommend it. We were a party of 6 without a reservation on a Sunday and we were seated within minutes of arriving (approx. 6:45pm). I will say that by the time we left there was a much longer wait time.

Two of us shared a sampler and we couldn’t even make a dent with so much food. Our table tried 3 different Milkshakes (Tres Leche, Cookies & Cream, and another not on the regular menu which had a Bonbon on top filled with Chocolate you had to crack with a little mallet. All insanely delicious!! Yum!!

Can’t wait to go back and try some other menu items to add to our list of favorites.

The only reason I didn’t give it a 5 rating is because the parking was not easy and all of them had signs saying it was for 30 minute parking which is of course impossible. We finally just parked and went inside. The car was still there 2 hours later, thankfully...lol!

Regarding what you shared about Valet Parking, we would like you to know that we'll take it into account.
