My family and I drove to this restaurant after realizing that La Pequena Colombia was closed for the holiday. The reviews seemed ok so we gave it a shot. Worst mistake! It was me, my husband and our three girls. We ordered a t bone steak and grilled chicken...the white rice had an awful weird taste to it, the steak was rough and very chewy, the chicken had an odd consistency. My husband stopped his order from even coming out based on how terrible the other food was. When our bill came out, we still had to pay $30 despite the fact that it wasn't edible! We had to leave there and go out eat else where since we were still hungry! So to sum it up: *long wait to get served * the food doesn't come out all at once * our appetizer never came out * not customer friendly! If you're in the mood for good Colombian food, I highly recommend la Pequena Colombia...the food and service has been consistently good on every visit we've ever had. And since I don't want to sound completely negative, the French fries and empanadas were pretty good.

The food was putrid at best and the service was just as bad. Avoid at all costs. We didn't eat and they still charged us.

The food is some of the best Latin cuisine in Tampa. The roasted pork melts in your mouth. Very authentic settings. Service could us a bit of work. I would encourage.

Laid back atmosphere. Great service. Good food. Seviche wasn't what I expected (creamy sauce?) but good. Reasonable prices.

I ate the Churrasco and LOVED IT. I promised that I would give a 5 star review and here it is. My wife also loved the Shrimp Mofongo. We would not hesitate to eat here again and neither should you.

I bought the Groupon. Went with my hubby and little one. The place is tiny inside, only about 10 tables inside and 3 or 4 outside. And it was really hot inside, either they don't have AC, or it doesn't work well, we were sweating by the time we left. The menu selection is nice, we both decided on the signature churrasco meal, which was $18 each. I ordered the arroz con gandules as my side, he got tostones. The presentation was amazing, and the portion was huge! The tostones were delish, but the rice and beans were dry and tasteless, I had to put salt and hot sauce on it to give it flavor. The steak was grilled to perfection, but had little to no chimichurri sauce, so ask for extra. And the steak was so big, we could only eat half, so I would suggest splitting that and ordering another dish to split as well.
