We had arepas for the first time and oh my goodness they were delicious, very filling and an inexpensive wonderful lunch, Ingrid owns and operates this little place and we enjoyed visiting with her and watching her cook. It is like sitting with family... More

Laid back atmosphere, surprised that by the time I've turned around a beach hasn't arrived. Love the food, real ingredients, nothing tastes store bought. Authentic and fantastic!

It is not easy to find authentic Latin-American food in the west coast (no, not all of us eat tacos an burritos every day). That's why this is an excellent place to try something different. Its is a small location in the heart of downtown Victoria, full of typical food like Arepas, Empanadas, Perros Calientes (not your garden variety hotdog)... More

Only thing that wasn't to my liking was the music but we got to watch the FIFA game so didn't mid it too much. On the whole I would go to La Fogata Latina again and recommend... More
