This place has a great neighborhood feel. Our gluten-free diner had plenty of options from which to choose. Service is fast and friendly. Portions are generous. We highly recommend the Venezuelan beverages. Super value.

Yum! We tried several menu items here. The arepa with chicken and green plantains was delicious. Beef was very tasty too. There were less vegetarian offerings but some were available. Our server was friendly and helpful.

This restaurant has grown and took over a neighboring competitor, expanding the space for guests and adding a second bathroom for clients. Service is great, in English and Spanish, and the Arepas, empanadas andother dishes are divine.
