Excellent Food & Service

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... read 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...

Some of the best food in Ohio! Try some Venezuelan food, you'll like it. You'll like the cost also! Very acceptable!

First the good. The atmosphere is wonderful. It's a small place and warm, intimate, inviting and casual. The décor has a Moroccan/Mediterranean vibe. We had the red-wine sangria and it was delicious and strong. The three of us shared a liter and there was still some left in the bottle when we left. The bad: we had 3 tapas (appetizers).... More

While visiting family in Gahanna Ohio we went to a neighborhood restaurant that they had been to before. Peruvian food was new to me. It was fantastic. I had the sweet corn cake with chicken. My family ordered the fish tacos. Portions were generous. Dessert was exceptional as well be shared flan and lava cake. I can't wait to return.
