After waiting 30 minutes for 1 arepa, which is something completely abnormal, I get home and start eating it to find that they decided to change the usual fried plantain in the pabellón for banana, the fruit. Yes, you got it right: they put raw banana inside an arepa with pabellón. It is completely out of place. It tastes horrible and the whole thing is ruined. Why would you do that? Just say you ran out of plantain and that's ok.

It's the second time I give the place a chance because of good reviews I read but honestly, this is intolerable. It's like finding strawberries in your burger because they ran out of tomatoes...

Our "Pabellon arepa" is clearly marked in our English menu to have "Banana" and in Spanish to have "Platano" we do not use the plantain vegetable ever in our arepas. We are thankful for your negative comment and hope you find what you are looking for, if you where to give us another chance we recommend you read our menu so you can find something that you will like. We have 22 arepas to choose from, with many non fruit options. Regarding the packaging and timing we are working to fix those issues. Thanks again for helping us improve.

We bought our food to take away. I had read that the arepa were small, so we bought the big ones. What a mistake! They had so much delicious filling that we could barely finish them. And we had ordered lots of other food as well! The empanadas with Venezuelan cheese were really good.

So order realistically, and return another time and order something else.

This place will make your senses travel. If you have tried arepas or you haven't, this place will not disappoint. They have a vast offer of types as well as other finger food dishes such as patacones or tequeños. The quality of the produce is superb and super fresh! The stews are made with lots of care and the service is just fantastic! Don't doubt in visiting this great little place!

Went to this restaurant after reading reviews. What a place! Ordered 4 small Arepas, 2 tequeno, and a cachapa. This was for two people. I was here with a Venezuelan lady who said to me that this Venezuelan food was the very best she has had outside Venezuela. I am new to Venezuelan food but I can say with certainty that I will be going again!!! The food was very reasonable on price, amazing flavours and we were completely full after the meal. Also the service could not have been better, very friendly!!!! Wish I was there now!!!!
