Came here for lunch today and it was really delicious. I got the seared shrimp with rice and sweet plantains and it was so fresh and just what I wanted. My wife got these vegetarian salad and couldn't get over how tasty it was. Definitely a nice little gem in a town full of great food places.

Ate there a few times for lunch. The food is hearty and plentiful and a good bargain for the price. Nothing outrageously spectacular but filling and worth it.

This was my first experience of trying out Colombian cuisine and I was not disappointed. The restaurant is located on the busy main street of Patchhogue, Long Island. The portion sizes were generous and the food was very delicious. Staff was friendly and attentive. Highly recommend

Stopped by here with the family. Beautiful and cozy atmosphere brick design restaurant and bar. Staff was very friendly. Spanish food was very fresh and delicious. They used processed cheese on nachos. Other that that everything was fresh and the prices were very reasonable. We all loved the rice!

We had the nachos which I loved. I know some people are turned off by the liquid type of melted cheese. I personally live that. Don't be quick to assume that it's processed cheese. It is possible to turn shredded cheese into a cheese sauce. Their green sauce was amazing. We put it on everything. The skirt steak was great.... More

Waitresses and waiters were speaking too loud right next to the tables where people were eating. Somebody who worked at the restaurant had a baby crying out loud and all of the workers were spending their time checking on every movement of the baby instead of checking on the customers that were waiting for refills and checks.
