Place is beautiful, big never have... More

The salad dressing was good, and the gallo pinto was well seasoned. The plantain chips were under seasoned, but the chimichurri sauce worked well to put... More

Eh so so lackadaisical staff. Could not eat my steak. Not gristle just chewy tough. Wait staff left one table, burped loudly, came by and asked if I was finished. I said yes that it was inedible. No comment picked it up and went to the kitchen. Everything else (appetizer sampler)was pretty bland. Plantain chips stale...

Solid steak choice, serving portions are well worth the price. Wait times are usually a bit long, especially on Mother's Day (duh).

I was flying solo on my way to the Keys, but wanted some good Cuban food for lunch. So glad I found this restaurant. I was dressed in jeans and sneakers, having just gotten off the plane, but they welcomed me with no problem. It is a bit upscale, so I was not sure of the dress code. I had... More

Description
For the last 25 years, our Latin American restaurant has specialized in serving authentic Nicaraguan and Central American style cuisine to the area. Our house special and most popular dish, the churrasco which is a tenderloin meat filet, is accompanied with our favorite chimichurri sauce, gallo pinto and sweet plantains. We don't stop there, we also have chicken and seafood available. If you're looking to satisfy your sweet tooth, our tres leches dessert is a crowd favorite. Soaked in three different kinds of milks and topped with marsh mellow like heavy cream, it is sure to put a nice cap to a wonderful meal. We've continued to be a great family place to dine with live music on weekend. If you're looking to host a special event with a small or large group we can accommodate you. We can easily hold 80+ people at our restaurant. Come see us today, we look forward to having you as our guest. Bienvenidos!
