I was in the center of Hartford and was looking for the nearest Latin restaurant, which happened to be this one, so we tried it. The food isn't bad, but I've had better Colombia Food! The waiter was horrible, but luckily the other helped man...More

The Best Colombian Restaurant in Hartford and surrounding, try the "Entraña" outstanding meat and excellent preparation, comes with rice, beans and sweet plantain! They have "Colombiana" and "Manzana", typical Colombian sodas! Also our beer "Aguila". Please enjoy and have an excellent lunch or dinner!

Went on a Friday to celebrate a cousin's Birthday, They provided excellent service and the food we ordered was great. The Sangria is a must try.

The food is expensive, tasteless and unsavory! The 'Arroz con Pollo' dish was very bad. The chicken was hard, dry and it was not pleasant to eat. In general, it didn't taste fresh and itt felt like it was overstored and reheated.

The customer service is "eh" but those empanadas are the bomb. They're actually my favorite because every time I've had them they've been awesome. Consistency is key ;) I've also tried several of their dishes and they've all been good too.
