Went with my wife who was sceptical. Not adventurous when it comes to ethnic restaurants. I loved the food and Service. Great prices. Highly recommend.

I have lived in Miami, specifically in Doral, for over 10 years. During that time I've had the opportunity to try countless Venezuelan restaurants as well as home-cooked meals from friends originally from many parts of the country. To this day this restaurant remains to be the absolute best Venezuelan food I've ever had. I've had meals here at least... More

while visiting Disney, we took the family out for a hole in the wall dining experience instead of a chain restaurant. We were not disappointed at all. Everything we got was absolutely wonderful. Jose, our server, was so helpful and patient with us as we were first timers. He took the time to explain everything to us and what each... More

The food here is good but the serving is in the smaller side. Im not too excited paying $3.00 for a side of rice or a side of plantain banana. But the food tastes good and people are nice and friendly.

Try this wonderful Venezuelan restaurant. The food is great and the people who work there were so solicitous. The prices are very low and the portions large.

A friend and I stopped in for lunch after seeing the rave reviews. The local cafe was quaint and unassuming, tucked away in a shopping plaza near Disney. I had a shredded beef combo served with white rice, black beans and sweet plantains. I also ordered the fresh juice (passion fruit) which was very thick and sweet. We enjoyed the... More

Fantastic food in a tiny restaurant on the edge of a shopping center strip mall. Generous portions, well seasoned! We were on vacation doing the Orlando theme park thing and stumbled on this gem in the middle of timeshare central. I'd highly recommend the empanadas! Didn't get but a taste of the first order of beef empanadas since my 7... More

This is our first time trying Venezuela food. We ordered empanadas, beef parmesan, and some kind of chicken& beef sandwich on Venezuela corn bread that I couldn't remember the name. Everything was delicious. We were glad that we stopped by. The price is also very reasonable. Will definitely be back.

Wandered on to this place near our hotel. We are adventurous when it comes to food so we thought this was right up our alley. First off our waitress was beautiful, kind, welcoming and helped us select foods to try. The food was so wonderful! Homemade everything!! Prices are very good. We highly recommend over area eateries. Don't miss it!!!... More

If I could give them more stars I would. We have been here twice on our trip because it is so good! We are a family of 4- including an 8 and 3 year old. We got the cheese sticks, empanadas, arepas, tostones, tejadas, and two of the bigger meals. We loved everything. Our favorite arepas were the chicken and... More
