Low key place with good food and the really huge drink menu

Terrific service, great for dinner or small bites. An arepas menu and lots of seafood and pork. Ask for the green sauce. You can buy a container to take home. Service informative and swift. You will not be disappointed. We found this place after giving a presentation and it was almost 9pm... read more

Amazing batidos, arepas, and empanadas. I want to eat everything on the menu, basically. Not all in one sitting. I go here whenever I can!

Got off the highway needing dinner in midst of traffic. It was on the early side so we were able to get a table outside easily. Although we had two squirming toddlers the staff was professional and welcoming and gave us great service. The food mainly lived up to the hype - especially fluffy arepas and delicious coconut shrimp (large... More

Although we didn't eat outside, I loved the beachy atmosphere they created with sand, picnic tables and umbrellas. This is obviously a popular spot because it was very busy. Even so, the service was reasonable and the food fresh and at the appropriate temperature. I was in the mood for a salad and the mesclun salad filled the bill. I... More

From a dive to a nice, fun place, Valencia is always packed. Great food, good value, outstanding drinks and bar. Crowded. Noisy. There's a wait. And kids, too. So what? Lots of takeout. A cute beach-kinda thing going on out front. We like hangin' at the bar. You cannot go wrong here.

Several years ago the restaurant moved down the street to a new, larger building. Now it can more nearly accomodate all the people who want to come for lunch and dinner. The menu is South American with an emphasis on Venezuela; portions are generous, service is quick, prices are good. They have a good selection of beers. For small groups... More

We went in a large party for a work function. Absolutely deplorable. One girl had a cockroach in her food. It was disgusting and filthly. I have never been to a more disgusting establishment. The walls were dirty, everything was just gross. Do not waste your time. I am shocked they passed inspection. I am from Florida so I am... More
