Got to try several Colombian / South American dishes that were all very good. Favorites were the Enchilada chicken, steak and the Colombian sausage (Chorizo). Super friendly staff. Very clean. Nothing else like it in Central PA.

How is this place not packed? We were here in a Friday night and the line should have been out the door. As a transplant from South Florida, I have a hard time finding good, authentic Latin cuisine in South Central PA. Aromas Del Sur...More

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.
