If I lived in Florida, I’d visit this place often so I could try every item on the menu. I ordered the arepa filled with meat and cheese. Delicious! The green sauce on the side was a great complement. If I could eat more, I’d have order another one. The girl explained the dish when asked. She was really nice and the tables were clean. I recommend this place.

I have tried Venezuelan food in different parts of US (San Francisco, Houston, Las Vegas, Miami, Orlando and Tampa) and some were good but this place without so much pretension is one of the best arepas, empanadas and tequeños that I’ve ever had. Additionally the owner was very nice checking that we were happy with all that we ordered. We had arepas, tequeños, empanadas, cachapas and they were so good that we had breakfast there every day while visiting. Do not lower your good standards and keep it up. . The place is very simple but food is what built a place right?

Great food, excellent environment, warm and friendly folks. My husband and I came across this restaurant as we were driving in the plaza deciding where to eat. From the moment we walked in, to the moment we left the staff was absolutely amazing. Janet was super helpful, friendly and patient with us as we took our time in deciding on what to order. Their food is FANTASTICALLY delicious, wonderfully balanced and flavorful. The preparation was done with attentiveness to details – just look at the photos! Their falafel was delicious and the pulled chicken platter was full of flavor. Highly recommend this restaurant you won’t be disappointed!

The place has parking in front, and around. Small, clean, and the servers and owners are very friendly, helpful, and attentive. All the menu items are made on request. They offer a variety of natural juices, and also beers. I ordered a Venezuelan delicacy, an arepa con queso de mano( corn cake with white hand-cheese sliced). It was warm, fresh, and the cheese was soft, creamy, and tasty. I also ordered a falafel Lebanese plate which had salad, hummus, a specialty sauce, 2 falafels very delicious. To drink i ordered a blackberry(mora) juice made with water, tasty. The overall customer experience was 2nd to none. You can tell the service is provided with a lot of pride, and professionalism. I’ll definitely comeback for more. You have a choice of one of the South American cultures, Venezuela which caters to Rice, beans, protein, and delicacies, and the other culture a middle eastern culture, Lebanon, offering more of a vegetarian style along with protein or other vegetarian options available…. there are a variety of options for both cultures. I’ll be back.. rating 4.7.

It is ridiculous that my coworker went on Saturday paid and made orders for a specific time to go during his lunch break on Monday and the food was not even ready. Customer service is everything and you guys totally lacked it! He is from your country and introduced us to you and we were willing to get empanadas every other week. Just horrible management skills and lack of respect for his time.
