We had a lovely lunch together on a Sunday afternoon. Food was good and atmosphere ok. It is nice to see ethnic food restaurant in Lancaster County. A good diversion from the PA Dutch cuisine!

On a recent getaway, we stopped at Aromas Del Sur and was pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere is ok, the service is great and the food is very good. We shared the chicken and beef empanadas, the chorizo con arepa (sausage) and the Yuca Frita, which...More

My wife and I were up in the area visiting family. We all decided to check out this place based on its high reviews. We're somewhat choosy when it comes to Latin American food. My family is from South America, I grew up in Mexico,...More

I was expecting Colombian food to be flavorful but it was bland, the atmosphere is cafeteria especially the lighting, the service was good though.

Portions are Huge! Service is friendly. Very warm family atmosphere. Owner chef comes to your table to meet you & find out how spicy (or not) you'd like your food. Try one of their tropical fruit smoothies, too!

This restaurant was opened in October 2010 by a group of three Colombian sibilings. We like to say we serve Spanish food but most of our dishes are cooked and prepared with Colombian influence. We wanted to bring a little part of South America to the Ephrata and Lancaster area and educate people on our lifestyle. Please come by and enjoy something we are very passionate about. We have delicious appetizers which come out fast and are filling along with our plentiful entrees. We serve your typical dishes such as pork, steak, and chicken which are usually always accompanied by their rice and beans. These dishes are prepared with Colombian spices and seasoning, but are not spicy as many believe just flavorful. We have options for reservation, take out, BYOB, and large parties. TAKE A LOOK AT OUR NEW WEBSITE!!!Please feel free to call during business hours.
