Best Colombian Restaurant

I really enjoyed eating at this Colombian Restaurant. The cheff, the waitresses, the owner, the food are from Colombia. What else to ask? If you are not from Colombia, do not expect to be served like in an American Restaurant or Italina Restaurant, you are wrong! be ready to hear, see, smell, feel and taste the real and delicious Colombian food. If you have a chance to visit Colombia and eat at any restaurant ...you will have the same service experience as the ""Cafetal Restaurant"". It's hard to find a real Colombian restaurant in the State of MA.... for now listen to the typical Colombian Music, wait, and relax while you eat at the best Colombian Restaurant in MA.

Worst Customer Service EVER!!!

I was excited to go to this place after hearing good things from friends. I went and the place was poor decorated. The waitress went to pick up the phone while taking our order. I asked if they had other types of arepas besides the one my friend had ordered and then she said ""what other types arepa exist!"" There are many types! We ordered arepa and they didn't even have it. What Colombian place run out of arepas! The waitress brought me the wrong drink and she never brought the rice and beans we ordered. Finally it took us almost an hour to get our check, which didn't happen until I got up and told her I wanted the check. The food was not awful, but it was also not the greatest. My mother makes better. This place is a disgrace. I was very disappointed!

Best Columbian food in Allston

Great Columbian food and very friendly staff. It's what my mom would cook at home if she had time. Very quick too for pick up - I've never had to wait more than 15 minutes.

if you want to know the ""BANDEJA PAISA"" , GO THERE AND ENJOI.
