4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Great food and good prices. A bit noisy, though. Outdoor dining available. Better for lunch/brunch than diner.

We had lunch here & the food was so delicious! We tried "The Works", which is black beans & rice, friend plantains, ceviche, avocado, 1 arepa (your choice) & 1 empanada (your choice), as well as Venezuelan hot chocolate (incredible!!!), dulce de leche coffee, and chocolate banana bread pudding. Everything was wonderful!

I visit about once a month and order the same thing. Boring? Perhaps. But good. I always go Sunday mornings. I order a Red Smitty with a side of avacado yum. They do a big after work and dinner business and great brunch. Go,enjoy.

Ordered the blackened Telapia It was delicious and the selection of arepas are to die for. We sat at the bar while waiting to be seated and we're sat in the front outdoor area. We took our shoes off to feel the sand on our feet. Yes, I said sand. Felt like we were dining on the beach.

I didn't have high hopes for this place, but the food was decent. The portions for the sampler and vegetarian plates were generous. The black beans and rice had good flavor. The drink glasses were dirty or maybe cloudy. I wonder about the quality of the meats, whether they have been responsibly raised. There is no mention of organically grown... More

Hands down favorite restaurant in CT. Whenever I am home for a holiday, my friends and I make a point to eat at Valencia. We've been going since it was a tiny shop a few doors down, but the new location has great ambiance, awesome service, and phenomenal food.

We decided to try this place because it looked crowded all the time and TripAdvisor rated it #1. That being said, I found it average which made it a little disappointing. We both got the sampler platter with an empanada and an arepa and side ceviche. I got the Cuban empanada which was great but the arepa with Venezuelan pork... More

We sampled mussels with arepas, empanadas, burritos, and more at a family dinner here recently. The restaurant was crowded but we were seated inside in about 15 minutes; the wait for an outside table was about 45 minutes. Everything was delicious!
