One of our favorite Durham restaurants. Great for date nights, and also impressively family friendly for our 3 young kids. Fast and friendly service. Delicious (and healthy) food. I especially love the fish & yucca fries with purple cabbage slaw, coconut rice with black beans, and quinoa empanadas with kale salad. Great creative drinks including fruit waters for kids and hot cocktail options. What is not to love?! Thanks for being a family favorite Luna.

As soon as I walked in I loved the place, super nice. They asked me where I wanted to sit which I loved because in many places they just take you to the table they want. Normally in usa restaurants the drink options are soft drinks, alcoholic drinks and teas with and without sugar but here there was more than that! Thank you. The service was great, he explained everything on the menu because it was our first time and he did it in a very friendly way. The food was delicious! We ordered brisket grain bowl, quinoa empanada, beef brisket patacon, passion fruit pie, Pinot noir and Ecuadorian horchata. The only thing I didn't like is that they charge a 3% fee for paying with a credit card, I would have liked them to let me know so I could pay with a debit card. They should not make decisions with other people's money. I highly recommend. I guess parking must not be very easy but that day being January 1st there was parking right in front of the restaurant.

Very tasty food in a great athmosphere. Staff is very friendly and effective. Great for kids with a tasty menu and give them different taste compared to American cuisine. Highly recommend!

I would recommend the Arepas so that you can try four different things. The beef was our favorite. A number of the items were quite good. The sauteed kale was cooked perfectly and didn't feel too heavy. Filling sides including the grits tasted creepy, although not very cheddary or pimento-y. The rice and beans tasted deliciously coconuty; even Dad said they were "good". Both the yuca thick fries and fried plantains (maduros) were worth getting in the future. Even the collar greens were better than expected, then again I have never been a huge fan of traditional greens so the twist was good by me. I actually got the chili jackfruit, although my family tries each other's food. It was spicy (chili go figure) and wasn't my favorite item. At first, looking at the menu, I thought the place seemed gimmicky. For example, they have not just cheesey grits but pimento cheese grits which seems like trying to cram as much reginal items as possible, while at the same time having multiple kale sides and quinoa bowls which seems like trying to be really trendy. But when I tried the food, my scepticism was replaced because we liked a lot of things.

We sat at the bar, our bartender was nothing short of fantastic. Friendly, patient and offered great suggestions to eat including condiments to our empanada. The grits are bomb dot com. I love slaw, and it was fresh and crispy. My beverage was not too strong. I wish we had more time, we would have ate there again.

Awesome experience at Luna! Nicely tucked away restaurant in Durham, NC. I stopped by for Bunch and sampled the Fish and Chips, Beef Brisket Patacon Pisao and Chicken Empanada. Great South American dishes cooked to perfection!
