Came here for lunch, and had two very filling arepas. The arepas here cost more than on the street, but the wide range of fillings make it worthwhile. It was also nice to find a couple of vegan options for the vegan among us.

This place was incredible! The arepas were so tasty and fresh. We tasted a variety of different kinds between our group and everyone was very pleased. They were also huge. I would highly recommend it!

We ate here several times during our visit to Cartagena and enjoyed it a lot. Fresh blended juices were delicious, and every arepa, salad and picadillo we tried were great. Prices are very reasonable. Fun music is always playing and the owner is really nice.

The Arepas here are real good! I would order them over the Patacones any time. The staff was nice and friendly also. A low key place for some good cool Arepa, can't complain!
