Our server Sergio was great ! I must say outstanding service. He was friendly and kind, and took well care of my guests. I will definitely keep this restaurant in mind next time I am in New York City. As for food it was great, just a tad too small in portion for myself. I would def recommend giving this spot a try !

Only negative was that the heating wasn't working properly, but if they can fix that next time. 5 stars.

Tiny and lovely Colombian restaurant tucked into Upper East Side’s Lexington Ave, easy to find and access. Staff, who seemed to be family, were uniformly lovely. Nothing fancy about the food but it was done well, tasted great, and presented nicely. A good spot for a pre-concert meal, which brought us there. Also it was blessedly quiet, nice Colombian beat very much in the background, and no shouting people! That makes it a standout in my book. The place was, throughout, impeccably clean and comfortably appointed.
