Delicious food, friendly service, value for money and a very authentic Venezuelan space. Do not miss once visiting Born and you want to have a quick bite to eat. We came here twice during our 3 day stay in BCN.

The arrepas are really great here. I wouldn't call it healthy, but the food is fresh and tastes great. Even though the prices have gone up since the last time I was here, I enjoyed it a lot and still find the value pretty reasonable.

The menu offered 'Arapas'. I had no idea what these are, so I went for the option called Pabellon de Aguacate. Arapas are tortillas from Venezuela. This one had avocado, black beans, fried plantain and cheese, was cooked while I waited, was excellent - and...More

If you already know arepas and cachapas, you'll love it. If you're not familiar with Venezuelan food you should give it a chance. Customers are mainly Venezuelans, but other nationalities are permitted as well. Decoration is a collection of Venezuelan memorabilia. Two things are not...More

First time trying Venezuelan food and I'm already planning our next visit to this restaurant. Food is great. There is only a small detail: there are no chairs, but other than that everything was great!

El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few
places that live and breathe such exciting energy
regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood
seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants
