This place is a bit far away from the most touristic places in the city. However, as everything within the wall, it is easy find it and in a walking distance. Although it is a small place, the food is really, really good. The prices...More

We really enjoyed the Arepas here, tasted fresh, would definitely recommend using the hot sauce they provide with them! Really reasonably priced if all you’re looking for is a light meal, in this heat it was the perfect amount for us. For two of us...More

This place has clearly jacked up prices since some of the previous reviews were written. 60mil pesos gets you 2 dry grocery store arepas and (wait for it) “corn off the cob” which consists of canned corn, shredded cheese, and crushed potato chips. If you’re...More

We went here on purpose due to excellent TA reviews. It's not in the prime tourist area of the walled city so you'll have to walk for a while. The restaurant is very small and colorful and service fast. Prices are average for indoor eating....More

We remember and love the decadently greasy, soft, stuffed arepas that we used to get, special ordered, at a Puerto Rican restaurant in our hometown. We hoped to find the same at Quero Arepa but were disappointed. The fillings were delicious, but the arepas themselves...More

I took veggie arepa. Veggies were good but arepa was not home made. It was exactly same you get from supermarkets. It was so dry that when I put my fork in it, it just crumbled into multiple peaces.
