Really enjoy their tasty dishes. Both steak and pork are excellent. However it is under staffed. There are about 10 tables. At times, only one server works outside. It takes 10 minutes for him to come by and take our order. Then we waited another 30 minutes to get food. Then no water refill. After dinner, we waited long time... More

Very tasty and unusual food. Excellent service from a very friendly staff. Huge portions. Be sure to take home some of their delicious homemade hot sauce.

Don't judge a book by its cover! Aromas del Sur is located in what used to be a dive/dance bar in an awkward part of this small city, but the food is WELL WORTH any trepidation. The customer service is wonderful; we were greeted openly and warmly by who I suppose is one of the owners. The food is delicious... More

What a great choice. We had the pork "schnitzel", huge portion that I shared with my 6 yrs old daughter. My wife had creole shrimp and my older kid had an amazing shrimp in garlic creamy sauce. Really awesome place close to Ephrata, would come here every week if lived close by.

Our first time here, and our first time trying authentic Columbian food! They did a wonderful job explaining the different dishes to us, and were extremely accommodating to our different levels of spice tolerance! We (kiddos included) tried the yuca fritas and the beef, cheese, and chicken empanadas, and they were all wonderful! My husband had the Camarones Enchilados and... More

What a surprise to find such a wonderful restaurant right in our backyard. The staff is friendly and the food is authentic and amazing. Prices are reasonable. 3 of us ate for less than $75 including appetizers. We brought our own bottle of wine as it is BYOB. The staff was happy to open and serve the wine. Great meal... More

So we're in Amish Country but not in the mood for a heavy meal. This place totally hit the mark. Our waiter and the chef were old school. They were versed in the art of service. They talked to us about the food, made spot on recommendations, were attentive to our needs and overall a huge part of the enjoyable... More

Description
This restaurant was opened in October 2010 by a group of three Colombian sibilings. We like to say we serve Spanish food but most of our dishes are cooked and prepared with Colombian influence. We wanted to bring a little part of South America to the Ephrata and Lancaster area and educate people on our lifestyle. Please come by and enjoy something we are very passionate about. We have delicious appetizers which come out fast and are filling along with our plentiful entrees. We serve your typical dishes such as pork, steak, and chicken which are usually always accompanied by their rice and beans. These dishes are prepared with Colombian spices and seasoning, but are not spicy as many believe just flavorful. We have options for reservation, take out, BYOB, and large parties. TAKE A LOOK AT OUR NEW WEBSITE!!!Please feel free to call during business hours.
