Bright, boisterous, and filled with laughter. That's Kiosco, an authentic Columbian kitchen located in Marietta's historic town center. This place is just like abuela's kitchen; loud, intimate, and filled with the scents and flavors of bona fide Columbian cuisine.

On a side street off Marietta Square sits Colombian eatery Kiosco. The waitstaff will likely sway you toward the medio pollo al horno, half of a roasted chicken with raspberry sauce. Crispy skin, tender meat and fruity preserves will seduce you before you realize you’ve pulled all the meat right off the bone. Entrées come with a side of lentil soup or an addictive salad consisting of garbanzo beans, carrots, red onions and cilantro tossed with red wine vinegar.

Good things come in small packages. It’s tiny, but they are serving dishes that are huge in flavor. The staff is very friendly and our server did a fine job. Don’t miss that appetizer platter. Make a reservation and your table will be waiting for you when you get there. Then go stroll the Marietta square and walk off some of that excellent Colombian food.
