I would not say that this place reminds me of Venezuela (Brooklyn location); the entrance is a bar with great ambiance and music, but you have to look around to find a little here and there of our divine country; now, if you plan to eat then you get to enjoy the Venezuelan menu. I was very happy of taking... More

The food and service at Caracas was fantastic. The food has a home cooked feel and is simple but super tasty. We ordered the national dish along with the pillowy little pockets of deliciousness.

These small arepitas venezolanas are the most delicious thing ever. No wonder why the place is always packed!! My favorite is del pabellon...order it with passion fruit juice.

My boyfriend and I thought the arepas were tasty, but also agreed that the arepa itself is not as delicious as say a taco or cuban sandwich. That said, this place is certainly worth a trip if you are in the East Village and want to try something new. The guacamole and yucca chips were pretty delicious and the service... More

Friendly little restaurant with excellent food at a very good price. The two of shared three arejas (la del gato--very nice balance of guayanes cheese, plantains, avocado; de pollo--chicken, carmelized onions, cheese; la de lalo--very tasty beef). More than enough food, washed down by a serviceable sangria, for $48, including tax and tip. Great value!

The only thing I want to say is GO THERE. The food is fantastic (and my Colombian partner agrees)... tastes like the arepa from home! Not expensive and good service. AND there are a few vegetarian options that are really good!

Good variety of arepas and other dishes, we enjoyed the place a lot, but I felt the arepas were too small. Additionally, the service was excellent and the aguapanela was absolutely delicious, a place to repeat in NYC.

Small budget place with only a few tables so expect a crowd waiting outside. We arrived at 8pm and waited another 45minutes, which we did in the nearby "The Bourgeois Pig" after putting our name down (which didn't help so we queued again). The food is very nice, something different, especially with their garlic salsa sauce. Service is extremely attentive,... More

I've been traveling around the USA for a few weeks now and this has been, hands down, the best meal I had. Apart from the a peeps we ordered the TAJADAS - the waitress recommended them and they are an absolute must!
