Have come here for breakfast and lunch many times - some of the best food in Norwalk. Everything I've had on the menu has been scrumptious.

The food is really enjoyable and the waitstaff is helpful with ordering. Service has been sporadic. Sometimes it is attentive and excellent and other times when the restaurant is busy it is not as attentive. They do not have a reservation system so sometimes there is a long wait, but it is worth it. The empanadas are wonderful! Try the... More

The food at this restaurant is excellent. The parking is dreadful! I would eat there weekly, but with horrible parking and a line out the door, it makes it challenging to enjoy their wonderful food. Perhaps they are victims of their own success.

"PEACE,LOVE, AND AREPAS," is the sign-off at the bottom of the bill after you've enjoyed a great meal at this terrific restaurant. You can get a great dinner at the Luncheria, even on a hot and crowded summer Saturday evening. The noise wasn't overwhelming at the corner table where we were seated by a friendly waitress called Vanessa. The atmosphere... More

We had a great late lunch here. The Lobster enchilada was very good, lots of lobster. The black bean soup is very good. So many great choices and interesting food. Would definitely go back to try more.

Food is fresh and yummy!!! So much to chose from. For sure a return visit place. But can be costly (Dinner for two $75). Keep in mind the chips and guacamole are not complimentary $9

Fabulous family owned restaurant that serves Venezuelan Beach food. I have no idea what that means but everything is delicious. They put fresh mango in their empanadas. My favorite is the eggs benedito which is eggs Benedict but with chorizo and mangos. You have to try it! The best! They make some fabulous specialty drinks all listed on the wall... More

Great Latin food. They are known for their empanadas, but found their main entrees more enticing. I sampled the shortrib which was excellent, but the dish I ended up ordering was the lobster enchilada. It was fantastic! I wish I lived in the area so I could sample more...

I've eaten here a few times. The outdoor seating has the feel of being at the beach. The food is always fresh; the daily specials are very creative with interesting blends of flavors.

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. No problem for this place..but the kitchen does... More
