This is a fantastic place for a pre-show dinner. It was pouring rain that evening so the owner even drove us across to the Broward Center in his car after dinner. The staff was attentive and fed a packed restaurant while allowing everyone to finish...More

We ate here prior to going to the Broward Center. It is walking distance with only $10 for parking. The pre-theatre meal was delicious and filling and only $29. Reservations are suggested.

Three meals served, three people were very happy. We had Arroz Marinero, Peruvian Jalea, and Salmon a la Parrilla Con Vegetales. Special kudos to the wait staff that were so patient with us. Hey, Luis, a special thanks for all your care! We shall return!

The place is really cute and the service was good. I had a "ropa vieja" ommellet which was very tasty. But, the potatoes were cold, they didn't offer bread until I asked and then they only gave one butter.More

Hello Marlen B. Thank you for your feedback. We apologize if your roasted potatoes did not come out hot with your dish. We would have provided a fresh hot batch of potatoes upon request but obviously know they should have come out hot to begin...More

We are a Latin American Grill & Cafe housed in a restored 1924 historic house in downtown Fort Lauderdale, in Sailboat Bend. We are located just west of the Broward Center for Performing Arts. Our Food is Latin American with an emphasis on quality ingredients -- we strive to bring the best dishes of Latin America to your table in a casual and inviting atmosphere. The idea of restoring this historic, derelect house into a restaurant started with a projected completion time of 2 years and finally took 6 (SIX) years to complete. Our goal was to createa Neighborhood restaurant on the West side of the Las Olas area (in Historic Sailboat Bend) with a strong focus on quality food in a casual yet beautiful environment. Our Food menu showcases the best dishes of South America and Spain like Ceviches, Arroz Marinerro (Paella), and lighter fare like Empanadas, Fish Tacos, and Steak Sandiwches. Come experience the charm of this old home and join us for Lunch or Dinner Tuesday thru Saturday, or for Sunday Brunch. Or just come by and have some coffee (Lavazza is served), or sip some wine, a House Sangria, or a Pint of our Draft Beer.
