    One of the best in NYC

    I cant believe anyone would say this place is just ok. Me and everyone I know LOVES this place. I have been eating here for years and its easily one of the best restaurants in the city. All of the arepas are delicious, never had one I didnt like, and everyone who I take here loves it (foodies included). The Yoyo appetizer is a favorite, and the arepa specials are always great - I usually just order whatever the special is. Dessert isn't worth it so don't save room. You only need 1 arepa and they are so cheap! Atmosphere is cramped and there is always a wait but it's absolutely worth it.

    It was ok..

    I saw this place on Bobby Flay and my boyfriend is Colombian and we make arepas all the time at home so we were very excited to try this place. We went to a concert at MSG and so we went to Caracas for dinner. The atmosphere was very cute, the place was warm and cozy and the service was good. The food, however did not live up to the hype. It was expensive and the portions were tiny! We had to eat 60$ worth of 6$ arepas to get full, and they were not all that good. I am a vegetarian so maybe the meat ones are better but the veggie ones were not very tasty. If we can make better food at home we do not go back to a restaurant...we will not be going back.

    Delicioso!

    Lived up to the hype. I heard about this place from Bobby Flay's Throwdown (where they won) and i'd been wanting to go ever since. I went and got the traditional de pabellon, it was delicious with the perfect mix of sweet & savory. The wait wasn't very long, the portions were a little small but definitely filled me up. I definitely plan on going back.

    Amazing!

    Wow! The arepas are full of so much flavor. The La Mutena was perfect. Spicy, sweet. Sat at the bar, which was probably better than the cramped dining area. Everything on the meny looks so good. I will definately be back to try one of each!!

    What's the hold UP!!!!

    When you enter this shop you are greeted with a sign that states( This is not fast food- everything is 100% homemade thank you for your patience) well this sign isn't false in any way. Be prepared to Wait and Wait. The food is great but I think it is a little pricey for what you get. Bring something to read!!!

    yummy

    Great food, except the portions are small and a bit pricey. The arepas fill you up and I also had the yoyo appetizer (delicious!) and oblea for dessert (tasty). Definitely authentic food from Venezuela.

    Amazingg

    The food was exceptinoal as well as reasonable and in my book, there is no better combination. The yoyo's were great. Cheapest guac i've ever had and the plantains to dip it in made it even more fun. I went with two girlfriends we all had different arepas and found them all delish. i had the pork shoulder and tasted the chicken and steak, both great. The red sauce on the table makes everything taste better.
