Try the combination meals , known as bandejas. Good meals with beef, pork, eggs, rice beans, plantains. Small neighborhood restaurant. Staff is attentive. We often use the take out option.

We had time in between disembarking our cruise ship and our flight home so I used the TripAdvisor app to help us find a good restaurant to have a meal before our flight home. Our meal was fantastic. Everything we ordered was delicious and fresh and the staff was friendly and helpful. Delicious empanadas, arepa con queso was so yummy!... More

Went here for lunch. I've been meaning to go as I live near by. It was great food at a great price. My coworker had the Bandeja Montanera and I had the fish fillet. Tasty, well done and very authentic. Service was very efficient and friendly! I'll be back!

The food as always is great! Atmosphere is fun and update, almost a little noisy but ok. Decor and lighting is a little ugly.

Meal,Atmosphere and Service...SUPERB! I appreciate restaurants like this instead of the local chain restaurants. Parking is limited during peak times but it is well worth the wait.

The tamales are wonderful as is the soup. The service is better than expected. You can tell there are a lot of regulars but they treat all their customers like friends. A very comfortable vibe and good food.

Everything that we had was amazing...we tried A LOT of different food. There were a lot of locals here too, which speaks volumes in a place like Ft. Lauderdale. Add pitchers of sangria, and enjoy.
