    Hit or Miss

    I have been going to Caracas for a couple of years now and have noticed a decline in their portions and quality of incredients, while their prices have recently increased. While on most days the arepas are still pretty tasty, it's hit or miss. They've been using so little cheese and avocado that these two ingredients are almost invisible. Quite often the plaintains are dry and tough. Caracas may be getting too popular for its own good...

    The arepas are too small

    I agree with the opinions that the arepas taste good, but what is going on with the size? If you go to Venezuela the arepas are twice as big and half price. I'm not expecting the same price but at least they should make them bigger.

    Good stuff

    I thought the food was really fun and creative, all the dishes my friends and I tried were great! Yes, the place is really small but most restaurants in the East Village are, as well, and this place has a fun atmosphere and cool music. I'm not sure what KKR is talking about that getting enough food to be full will "cost you a TON" - I had 3 arepas and was plenty full, and at $4-5 each, I don't think about $20 for a meal is "a TON", I think it's quite reasonable actually. I will definitely return!

    the best

    This is my absolute favorite restaurant in NYC. I'm obsessed. And its great for vegetarians- you can substitute the meat for baked tofu! yum yum yum!

    Hysterically overhyped & going downhill

    I went here a couple of years ago and it was OK. Tasty but SMALL proportions. Filling up here will cost you a TON. The other day I tried the place again and the food was poor. Still small portions but the food did nothign for me. The chips were tasteless and you don't get nearly enough guacamole.

    Excellent arepas!

    I always go here with a Venezuelan friend. He really likes the arepas and says that they are authentic. I think theyre great. Especially the pork with mango sauce and the chicken and caramelized onions. The food is inexpensive. It is a small place so expect to sit in a crowded area. Anyone who tries these arepas will agree they are the best in NYC. (since there are only 2 other Venezuelan restaurants in the city at most). Great food , cheap price.

    Delicious!

    I had lunch there five hours ago, and I am still thinking about it! Fresh and delicious!
