    Shrimp salteado was decent. Maybe I expected more flavor. Others had the Cuban sandwich which was wonderful. The Cuban bread they served before hand was on point.

    Try the Fideua with Mariscos. Even if it's not like the famous spanish dish (Columbia's is more like Seafood pasta with tomaro sauce), it's delicious!

    Were the Mojitos better out of the pitcher? No, but a pitcher with bread and 3 tapas a shot espresso and flan to end it all is a good $35/person well spent and relaxing 2 hours.
