Great food, confusing menu

We like this restaurant a LOT! The quality of all the food is extremely fresh and the meat is great. I love the high quality of the beef, so I get that every time but my husband has ordered chicken before and liked that too. They have this cilantro sauce that's life changing so be sure to ask for... read more

El Arepazo's South American cuisine is diverse, delicious and deserving of repeat visits. The dining environment is the perfect accompaniment to the food. I've been here many times and never had a bad thing on the menu (I believe it doesn't exist). The wait staff is knowledgeable and professional, treating patrons like friends and family. This restaurant deserves your attention... More

A gem of a small restaurant, off the beaten path in Gahana Oh (across from the Sancetury). Very tasty South American specialities, well spiced and unique. Hard to believe there is something so unique in central Ohio, and very reasonably priced. Went there with my wife and daughter, waiter took time to explain and recommend dishes, it was fun and...

We went here a few weeks ago and found the South American food her to be delicious and very unique. It is very small and has a small outside patio, but it's definitely a place to which we will return.

The South American food here is simply delicious! My wife 'is from Ecuador and this is probably her favorite place in town now, after just one visit. Not sure if this place takes reservations, but if not, I'd suggest getting there early. There was a line out the door when we left - although in better weather, the patio would... More

This was our second visit. Both visits resulted in delicious dinners. The place is small, and a third attempt to eat there failed, as the place was packed with a 45 min wait. Decor is modern but dark. I'd give it a five if there were table clothes and upholstered, more comfy chairs.

Since opening their Gahanna location, we have eaten at Arepazo a number of times. The restaurant is fairly small and can feel a bit cramped. The sidewalk cafe area, tho small, is very nice. We've always had good food and good service. Tilapia is one of our favorites. They make a nice glass of sangria as well. Good food and... More

We came here for dinner on a Saturday night and ordered several selection of tapas. They were OK, nothing memorable. Several selections came with ample plantains, which are not an special favorite but when prepared properly are at least succulent and modestly enjoyable. These however were of a consistency similar to hockey pucks and a chore to eat. The place... More

Delicious fare with an emphasis on freshness and presentation, though the portion sizes can be inconsistent across the menu - some appetizer/tapas are large while some entrees can be small - and on occasion you may have to wait an inordinate amount of time for the food to come out from the kitchen; I also prefer the larger and more...
