I had blackened fish tacos with beans and rice, and they tasted great. The food was all tasty and the wait staff was attentive and very pleasant. This was the third time I've eaten here and I will be back!

A converted old home in historic downtown Elkins operated by a fantastic Veneuzuelan chef and her West Virginian husband. Out front, a Venezuelan restaurant with excellent, authentic Latin food. The cachapas are great. The Cuban and Venezuelan sandwiches too. In the back, a bar and music venue with probably the best assortment of craft beer in the area. Local brewery... More

We were travelling through Elkins and checked TripAdvisor for recommendations for restaurants and found this treasure. Walked over from our hotel through an interesting downtown to this quaint building converted into a multilevel restaurant and bar. Had no idea how large it was on the inside and in the back of the property. We had not tasted a couple of... More

The cachapas and arepas are the best. Lots of food for a low price. Live music some nights and amazing service. I would eat there every day if I could.

It feels like dining in their living room. On a Tuesday, there were very few people, a quiet evening. The food was really good, yet not out of this world. The fried plantains appetizer was freshly prepared and really special. Service was effective and friendly. Good local pale ale on draft.

Their outdoor seating area is really nice in the summer and even in the fall before it gets too cool. Live music is a frequent thing in the back where they keep the bar, and the casual dining room in the front is really nice. It's a Venezuelan restaurant and the menu offers authentic options. There's something for everyone though.... More

We had supper here in late July for the sole reason that we read the reviews on Trip Advisor. We probably never would have found it, but we are so glad we did! It's housed in an old house with extremely friendly and helpful staff. We had never had Venezuelan food before, and the waitress told us the Dinner Capahapa... More

We loved this restaurant. We have lived in Venezuela and were craving the Arepas. It's in a very quaint house with great decor. We highly recommend this place.

Unusual food. Guess that's why I didn't care much for it. Reserved a table, but a group of guests sat themselves at it, so we were put in the back room, which is the bar. The entertainment was not very good and made it hard to talk with friends. The chef was not there that day, so limited selection.
