There is nothing we have had here that wasn't delicious. The plantain chips are yummy with the salsa, love the empanada appetizers too. I hosted a party here and the service was fantastic and everyone loved the food.

I got stuck in Norwalk due to a snowstorm. This place was right next door to the hotel. I thought they had great menu items. The "chips" and salsa were great. I ordered an appetizer which was really good but I did find grissel (sp?) or a piece of bone in it. However they did not charge me for my... More

Have been a fan of the original spot (still going strong in Stamford), was in Norwalk and gave this a try. As expected, it was very good. Salsa and fried plantains set up the rest of a great meal. Get the ceviche when you go, and you should go.

I ordered the Curry chicken and it was amazing. Even though I was full, I had to keep eating ...it was that good!

Love this place! The food is superb; Columbian with a flair. Large portions; ordered the skirt steak and could only eat half, the sides are generous and well prepared. The drinks are terrific too. I would come for drinks and tapas at the bar too. Great service. Will be back very soon

I ordered curry chicken. After my first bite, it was so good, I couldn't stop smiling and keep eating. I had not had this feeling for a long time. It was just that good. If you are in town, you got to come here. You won't be disappointed.

Second time here, enjoy the free plantains/salsa, and the skinny margaritas we had. Our entrees were also good, we had the chicken and the shrimp from the menu. Next time we want to try desserts. Very busy bar crowd early on Friday night which was pretty loud but bearable. Parking was tough, we were lucky and found a spot.

Despite the off-putting location in a strip mall and slightly too bright interior, we were so impressed with the food and service that the lack of ambiance could be overlooked. At 7:00 on a Saturday the place was packed with mostly couples enjoying the well made cocktails (we had the mint cucumber martini, classic and pomegranate margaritas and Chilean Pinot... More

I am such a huge fan of Latino food. This place did not disappoint. I had good service and the plate was huge, good thing I was hungry. Such a good atmosphere and service, which I think is most important in restaurants. Job well done! I'll go again if back in Norwalk.

We decided to have dinner here because we really liked our experience at the Stamford location and this one is very close to where we live. Unfortunately, we didn't like it as much. The menu was limited and expensive which is why I rated it average and we decided to just order appetizers. I had a special starter that had... More
