I had the vegetarian arepa which was delicious. I have had cheaper but the arepas here are pretty filling and it’s a cute restaurant. The man there was friendly and I would eat there again.

I had two types of arepas here. Both were good, filling; but, I've had better and at lower cost. Also, the salsa/aji was just average. Still, I wouldn't mind stopping by there again if I just wanted something fast to fill me up.

Lovely food combined with friendly service make for an awesome some combination. Be sure to also check out their empanadas!

The tiny Arepas cost 3,5$ and are not as amazing as may people did comment here. The Señor who prepared mine was not layering the ingredients that good so after half eating it it was just beans. Also my Arepas tap broke way earlier then...it did may in other Arepas places before which I found from Colombia all down till Uruguay. This place is overrated and for that medium quality definitely overpriced. If you want to try nice Arepas worth the money, then try them in Mindo or somewhere else again ;)More

Amazing arepas and great prices. Very good service that makes you feel at home. The quality of the arepas is superb and include a great variety of types. They also offer empanadas and heavier dishes, as well as natural juices.

The Arepas was very delicious and it was a new taste which is great. The Arepas are 3.5$ and the empanadas are 1.5$. highly recommended

We ate here many times while in Banos. These things are awesome and very filling. Great for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

This is some of the best food I've had in Ecuador. We ordered three different kinds at two each and had to save the second one for lunch. These arepas are stuffed full and the side sauce is excellent. I'll eat here everyday till I...leave. Service was friendly, made to order, excellent. Go now, you won't regret it.More

The arepas here are so good, the prices are very reasonable and the service is great. Possibly my favorite place in town, will miss it dearly!

We have seen a few vendors of arepas, but we finally got a chance to try it. If you don't know, it is a corn based bun that is stuffed with great tasting food. I got the Reina pepiada (cheese, chicken, and avecado) and my...wife tried the llanera (asado, tomato, avecado, and cheese). Both were wonderful. We had pineapple juice and they asked if we wanted with or without sugar, which is rare and great. The owners are super kind and chatty to a guy that only speaks badly broken Spanish.More
