“Venezuelan style homecooking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

If you are from or have been to Venezuela, you will quickly identify the smells and flavors of the local food in this little café at the corner of an otherwise unimpressive strip plaza in busy and touristy International Drive. If you are not familiar with it, you will enjoy the unassuming home cooking style in this little place. This is a refreshing change from all the chain restaurants and buffet style joints in this area. Great food at a very reasonable price!

“Tastes like home cooking, the kids will love it. ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

It's located in a shopping center stuffed with touristy garbage--I doubt they get much foot traffic which is a shame. Make the effort to find this place because the food is made by real people with good ingredients for a great price.

A simple meal of sauteed chicken over steamed yuca (think milder sweet potato), beans and rice, and yummy fried plantains--comfort food for kids and adults in the wasteland of chains and excess.

Great food and cool folks. Skip the Hard Rock and the questionable seafood buffets and eat home cooking instead.

“Don't miss this hidden gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

This is a little café at the end of a row of shops just off I drive. The staff were really friendly. The food was cooked from fresh whilst we waited and tasted amazing. We would definitely visit again and recommend it to everyone.

“For a blissfully memorable experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

For something different in Orlando, this is it! We had a beautifully relaxed evening here with gorgeous food! We sat out front with a view of the lake beyond the car park. Our waiter was gentle, helpful, friendly and judged well whether we wanted to be left alone or when we needed him. The food was absolutely gorgeous, home made. I hope this experience was genuinely Venezuelan because I want to visit that country after tonight. Excellent value for money.

“Great food at a hole in the wall”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2014 via mobile

Really tasty South American chicken and beef. Near Universal. We had the Avila special. Friendly and solicitous staff. Wine available too, although we didn't try any after a late afternoon drink.
