Food was good and priced ok, plates are small for dinner service. It seemed like it was the lunch special, but charged dinner price. Service was fast. On the other hand, no parking, restaurant is a bit dirty. Dust and some black stuff coming out...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.

I've tried Colombian food in restaurants across the east coast, and La Fonda is by far my favorite. The arroz con pollo is fantastic and the peasants platter is outstanding. Try the guacamole with plantain chips. Everything is amazing even down to the coffee. Great...More

Had lunch here yesterday. I had the bandeja montanera, which is a platter of food with grilled steak (skirt, I think), columbian sausage, fried pork rind, rice, beans and a fried egg. It was excellent. My wife had the beef tongue, which was very tender...More
