On the east side of Columbus this week looking for something different to try. We found Arepazo searching all the towns between Delaware Oh and Hebron Oh, avoiding the chains and malls. A lively jewel in the center of Gahanna! The small restaurant was eclectic and charming; the drink menu was extensive; the service was good; and the food delicious.... More

Had the empanaditas to start. Then the pork patacon was one of the tastiest things I've ever eaten! Add to that the tres leches cake and it was a heavenly dinner!

Looking for an intimate place with great food, check out Arepazo. We had to wait (small) but it was worth the wait. The South American cuisine was delicious and prices were very reasonable. We were visiting our son so we wanted to eat something besides chain food and got that here. The steak saltado and carne asada were outstanding.

Nice outdoor terrace and cool interior. Had Venezuelan Arepa $7 and Chilaquilas $11, both were excellent and way more than we could eat. Large portions. Great helpful and friendly staff. Ask for Natallia S.

Food was nothing short of amazing! Loved the ceviche!! Atmosphere is great - authentic & hip. Service was good. Could get a bit pricey outside of happy hour though.

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 extra... 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
