Awesome food at great prices!

Valencia has been an institution in Norwalk for a while now - I don't get there often, but when I do, I'm also ways asking myself why I waited so long to go back! The prices are great - I had the chorizo and cheese arepa - the chorizo isn't your typical super spicy variety - it's get the most... read more

Valencia is small and cute. Although the noise level is a bit high, the colors and the vibe is fun. Staff are friendly, drinks are great (especially mango batido!) and food is delicious (shredded beef arepas recommended). Plantains are a must to try.

Never had Venezuelan beach food before and was pleasantly surprised. The arepas as delicious and unbelievably filling. Ordered two and barely got through one! Will be going back next time I'm in the area.

The noise level was epic at lunch so much so the it completely drained the dining experience I thought the first paragraph covered my views, but more words are required - so I have added them.

Frequently stop in for lunch. Never had a bad meal. The service is always excellent. The best dishes are the empanadas and burritos. Bring an appetite! Their daily specials change often and are worth it. Very creative cocktails are made daily. My next trip will be for Sunday brunch which I've heard is amazing.

Many choices of food and drinks. I've never had anything there that wasn't delious. Ypu can be a little adventurous or they do have some 'regular' things on the menu.

Had dinner this weekend with my grown kids. Loved the atmosphere and the vibe. Food was very good- empanadas and arepas tasty and the burritos large. Biggest disappointment was the Camerones al Ajillo and Steak al Parilla; the shrimp was nothing exceptional and the steak was a little tough. Entree prices were a bit inflated! All and all we enjoyed... More

I enjoyed my visit to Valencia Luncheria, but I was a bit let down by all the surrounding hype. It was a cool spot, with some pretty good food, but it was by no stretch of the imagination... great. I got a pulled pork burrito, along with a few empanadas. I tried a few other dishes at the table and... More
