We were thrilled to find this moderately priced restaurant that serves gluten free food. Once we realized we could get there easily with the St. Charles streetcar we decided to check it out. The food was delicious, the ambience very pleasant and the service was great. We had never heard of arepas before but now I'm trying to find some... More

Came for my nephew's graduation. As the restaurant is small, it is very difficult to seat a larger party, however, they did their best to accommodate us. The food was AMAZING! So so yummy! I had the Marinera (shrimp on cornbread with slaw and avocado and it was so delicious. Everyone in our party was very pleased with their food.... More

This might be my new favorite restaurant in New Orleans. Wow! I have celiac and my friend suggested we meet here for dinner as she heard they have Gluten free options. Not just options- they have a Gluten free menu. Every. Single. Item. My friend recommended we start with the corn for an appetizer. Originally from Nebraska, I thought I... More

What can I say... these images don't do the food justice. The meal was so satisfying. The corn was unbelievable could have made a meal out of just this. Sweet, salty and cheesy. Had the chicken with caramelized onions...mmm good. So filling I had to bring home the rest for a mid night snack. Oh did I mention you need... More

Great discovery. The salad and skewers for starters were excellent - very flavoursome. Then ate the Reina and Pollo Grillaio arepas. Friends had the ceviche. We really liked the tastes and presentation. On Wednesdays there is a happy hour deal on wine where the second glass is half price. I had an excellent Chilean white. The staff were friendly, enthusiastic... More

My husband is Colombian, and the kids and I have visited there many times. We LOVE Colombian food, but there aren't any restaurants where we live. Everything we had was delicious. The empanadas, arepas, fried plantains and especially the tres leches are highly recommended.

This was at the recommendation of my bed-and-breakfast. Came here for dinner and the really enjoyed a couple of appetisers and a beverage. The tone of the foods is Colombian/South American fare. Tasteful decor with a modern flare. It was interesting to see mostly women bartending. The beef skewers were a little bit tough so I'm not sure that I... More

We came to this restaurant looking for something different to try. When driving to find this place it didn't look promising but I'm happy we were wrong. This place is a gem, the food is delicious, they have a small menu, it's bassicaly all arepas (corn cake) and a few appetizers. Our bartender Andres took really good care of us,... More

My husband and a friend of ours went to this restaurant and we arenot expecting too much. The food was wonderful. We ordered fried yuca with chorizo and two different kinds of arepas: one with pork and the other one with beef. The wine was a Portuguese Vinho Verdi that was very good. I strongly recommend this place.
