    Could eat these till I die 😜. Served coffee and beer. Layer in the three sauces as you eat. Go easy on the hot sauce (yellow bottle)

    Slightly modernised Venezuelan fare. Try a platter to get a taste of a few things at once.

    Not to be missed. Arepa sandwiches are great (we had both chicken and flank steak). Yuca, tostones, and empanadas as "finger food" are excellent. Nothing felt heavy or greasy. Very flavorful

    Do not come here and waste your money or time! It is extremely expensive for what it is! Service only in English which sucks! Go to El Gordo Ex on 1048 Bathrust st! A lot better and cheaper! Trust me

  • Laura D.
    As a Venezuelan, i can guarantee you'll have great authentic food in this place. If it's your 1st time, try the "Reina Pepiada" because it is the signature arepa. Blackberry juice is a must!!
    Laura Delgado Ranalli · May 6, 2013
  • Michael F.
    Gluten free! Try a chicken breast arepa with a cafe con leche.
    Michael Fil · April 8, 2013
  • Desmond F.
    The hot sauce is super spicy, be warned. Usually I don't taste the spicyness in spicy dishes you find in restaurants... but this was definitely hot.

    Messy as hell but tasty. The red sauce borders on being too hot for human consumption so use it sparingly.
    David Strasser · April 27, 2012

    Deliciously perfect sized lunch. The Pulpo is damn good. The octopus is soo soft and tender, not chewy and gamy. Mmmm.
    Miguel Florendo · October 25, 2011

    Go for the lemonade. It's sweetened with cane sugar and always has a mint leaf floating it it.
    Julie Ngo · September 18, 2011

    Black bean soup is watery and oddly sweet. Stick to the arepas.

    The fish arepa is a bit bland but the beef tenderloin was great with the side guacomole.

    Bertrand Mangeot · September 14, 2014
  • Mery G.
    Esto no se siente venezolano para NADA, empezando por el staff y la comida! No pierdan su tiempo y su dinero, porque es muy costoso para el sabor y la porción de comida que ofrecen!

    Arepa es la bomba.
