4.0 / 5 Stars
You simply cannot go wrong at Barrio Latíno. It's the best place for a quick, delicious lunch bite anywhere in town.
With sensational entrées that all come with two side dishes - and prices ranging from $6 up to $12 - the value for lunch is undeniable.
Chicken, pork, beef, and seafood options are available, and the portion sizes are generous. The sides are fantastic, as well.
The plantains are savory and remain atop my list of faves.
Prices and plate sizes increase at dinner time, with the same value and excellence as earlier in the day.
Barrio Latíno has plentiful seating, both in the dining room and along the narrow sidewalk out front.
The servers are perfectly bilingual, exceedingly courteous, and always prompt.
I recommend the trés lechés for dessert; it's downright heavenly.
The most underrated restaurant in Aventura with a hip, modern, newly renovated dining room.
It continues to baffle me as to why more people don't talk about this spot.
Clean-cut, conscientiousness staffers always treat you like family at Barrio Latíno.
