We went here based on trip advisor and we were not disappointed!! We always try different foods in Orlando but this one really stands out. The Empanadas are truly a work of art. They are fresh, moist and crispy. The Passion Fruit Drink is thick and all natural. Every time I am in Orlando I will always stop here for... More

We ordered 3 meals from here, and the quality was all over the place. I ordered a steak that was very tough but tasted great along with the sides. My nephew loved his giant chicken parm.

This place is a well kept secret. If your in the area, you should stop in. The empanadas were fantastic-flavorful meat fillings and sweet, perfectly browned dough shells. The steaks were well seasoned and perfectly cooked. The server was helpful and friendly. It's a 10.

The fried snapper (shown below and a staple in Florida), was remarkable in... More

Small place with big flavor! Our first time eating Venezuelan food and everything was very good. We tried a little of everything, including flan for dessert.
