My husband took me to this restaurant on a Saturday night. Gosh huge mistake. We got through the doors and this thing was packed. We stood by the door maybe like 40 mints waiting for someone to acknowledge us. I was already irritated because everytime one of the waiters passed by us they gave us a weird stare like what you doing here . Anyways after finally somebody acknowledging us he sat us like by the door way and it was cold that day. The food was ok not something i would pay for again. The waiter took our order and the food came like an hour later. And everytime i would call the waiter he would just not pay attention. Bad bad costumer service and the owners don't care i guess as long as the place is packed they care less about how they treat their customers. Ughhh NEVER EVER GOING BACK THERE AGAIN.

OMG!!! I just want more. I certainly wish I lived closer. I've read many of the reviews and I can say we were all pleasantly pleased. We had the Consome de Pollo, Churrasco De Pollo dinner, and Calamari. Too much to eat in one setting and definitely worth bringing home for lunch tomorrow. The aroma filled the car and made the ride home well worth it.

Great food, fun ambiance, and good people! Very eclectic entertainment. In one evening my wife and I listened to a live trad Ecudorian music band during dinner, which was follwed up by karoke (en espanol), and then the place transitioned into a night club playing dance music late night. Lots of fun and a very unigue dining experience with a lot of personality.

Great food, good service and fun atmosphere. Can get very loud when live music is present. Most appropriate for adults, but we have brought a baby and toddler with no issue. Servers are very friendly and helpful, but English isn't their first language and it can get confusing. Somewhat expensive, but perfect for a special treat.
