We had a wonderful experience at Latino resto. The food was great, the service was excellent, authentic South American food. We will be back for sure. We highly recommend this place to anybody that enjoys food.

I dropped by here for lunch, my first time in the restaurant after years of walking past and not going in. We had an exceptionally good lunch, and my wife and I both agreed we'd be back. For me, this is one of those places...I'll want to visit again and again, picking something different each time until I've eaten my way through the entire menu. Then I'll go through it again. Highly recommended.More

Try the edible exotic aromatica- delightful hot drink made with dried fruit, melon, apple, cinnamon etc. Also the trioloco is superb because you get 2 arepa, and a small cup of beans and chorizo to go with it.

I had heard good things about this place prior to visiting. Now that i have been there, I understand why folks like it so much. The food is delicious and very authentic. Prices were very good too. I had the tostones and they were so...good! Also had churros with ice cream for dessert, drizzled in a mango sauce. Off the charts amazing! Our waitress was also very kind. The only small complaints I have is that the portions were quite small. I left there still feeling a little hungry. Also, it was very warm in the dining area. AC would have been nice. Be sure to check out the small grocery section by the checkout. Overall a wonderful restaurant.More

Clearly a legit Mexican restaurant. Had the beef tacos which were great, good level of spice. Quick service. Has a Mexican grocery store with homemade salsas and hot sauces attached.

This is by far the best Mexican/Guatamalan food to be found in Nova Scotia. I'm a native southern Californian and spent many summers in Mexico, so I have a point of comparison. Claudia is rooted in traditional Mayan cuisine, and she makes trips throughout Latin...America regularly, to broaden and enrich her culinary expertise with techniques and flavours from these other countries. She trained as a chef in PEI, and is serious and impeccable in preparation and presentation. I was particularly impressed with her addition of chocolate to savoury tortillas, use of nopales (cactus fruit) and fabulous sauces. I am a regular and request visitor to Cafe Aroma Latino, and I hope she continues to cook here in Halifax for many years to come.More

Good restaurant and especially for its specialty of Guatemala. I found the flavors I knew from Mexico. A good address in Halifax to eat dishes with flavors of Central and South America.

A nice place for a few friends or a couple of couples. A little quieter than its sister restaurant next door, The Bicycle Thief. Seating is a bit tight but service is very good! All the dishes we ordered were good and we all had...something different. A pleasant experience.More

Everyone seems to pass this by, but they shouldn't it's a Latin-American gem. Simple cafe with exquisitely delicious home cooked food. Called in for breakfast with a friend while gettting his bike fixed. Cyclists can eat, and we weren't disappointed. you're not quite sure waht...to make of the tiny space when you walk in - looks a little like a cheesy mexican cafe with the rustic tables and crockery but it's ll there to make a point that the food is anything but cheesy and quaint. The coffee was good and strong and the breakfast plates - perfectly friend plantain, tasty refried beans, avocado, home made salsa and eggs melded together perfectly to satisfy. The place also has a secret, hidden store where you can buy alll those central and south american products you just can't find anywhere for if you fancy trying your hand at some local dishes. It's a bit of an aladdin's cave! given that it was one lady doing everything, without any fuss, boggles the mind too. Take the time to come to Cafe Aroma. you will not be disappointed. I need to explore more of her menu!More

Stumbled across this while on a walk and almost walked right by (signage is sort of hidden). So very glad we went inside. We enjoyed authentic tacos, papusas and fair trade coffee. Can't wait to return to enjoy the breakfast menu and to browse the...small grocery store attached.More

The number one thing I miss about moving out of the north end is grabbing food at this place. Everything is delicious and the price is right. The coffee and the passion fruit juice are certainly worth a try.

When my husband and I moved into the neighbourhood around Agricola and North, we noticed this little cafe. I was concerned about the food being too spicy for me and my husband would wistfully peruse the menu as we walked by. Eight months later we...finally tried it! I was pleasantly surprised at how flavourful the food was without being overly spicy. My husband had a breakfast plate that included chorizo sausage, black beans, feta, and two corn bread patty things filled with egg (we can't remember the name). I had a beef taco (soft taco shell type - authentic!), one of their dobladas and a pupusa. They're slightly smaller versions of the full meal supper ones you may be used to but they're priced accordingly and great value. I enjoy variety and trying a few things all at once so it was perfect. I cannot stress enough how fantastic this meal was! My husband and I are good cooks and we often leave restaurants thinking that at least part of the meal we could have done better ourselves, which is always a bit disappointing. I left with that 'wow' feeling, which is rare. My husband is from the UK and has had great food all over Europe and often remarks how bland the food is here. HE was impressed with this meal, which means a lot if you knew him. The grand total for the whole thing was around $30, including drinks (their unsweetened passion fruit juice is amazing!) and worth every penny. We'll definitely be back. I only regret not going sooner.More
