I have eaten here several times with family and friends. The food never disappoints and the atmosphere is fun enough for a night out but casual enough to bring your kids. My favorites are the lobster enchiladas and the sweet potato salad. My son loves the empanadas. The guacamole is also terrific.

My daughter and I decided to have lunch in the Norwalk area, because it was mid-way between our locations. Neither of us was familiar with Norwalk, so I did an Internet search and discovered this gem, with excellent reviews. The cuisine is authentic Latin / Spanish, with many specialties flowing with fresh guacamoli, shrimp, seafood, brown rice with black beans.... More

Terrific Latino cuisine and a special ambience. You can eat outdoors on the sandy "beach" under umbrellas, or inside where the setting is bustling and close. But either way the food is varied and inventive, plus yummy juice drinks and good cocktails. Great fun.

Great food, reasonably priced with a decidedly funky staff . We like going here during the summer when they build a beach outside so you can eat and put your toes in the sand . This place was featured on The Food Network so that makes it interesting too. Try it for brunch on the weekend if you don't mind... More

Had red smitty's burrito, with egg, cheese and chorizo plus a side of Oaxaca potatoes and Venezuelan hot chocolate. Chipotle and their green sauce was also a must! Yummy. Friend had yogurt and granola. Had been a couple of years ago and enjoyed again this time. Very friendly, busy after 10 for brunch on a Saturday.

We really love the food at Valencia's however we were really disappointed with the service tonight. When we got there, they told us we had a 20 minute wait, which turned into a 40 minute wait. They offered us a table outside that was covered with three umbrellas since it was raining. We took the table and within 5 minutes... More

I've been here multiple times and never had a bad meal. Try the specials! They won't steer you wrong. Excellent service and taste. Great outdoor seating on a nice day

For breakfast, lunch, dinner or a snack, this place delivers with great food, service and atmosphere. They manage to turn a front yard abutting the road into a little beachy oasis. Tried breakfast recently and it was excellent. They keep hitting the mark and deserve their good reviews.

Valencia offers the best shredded chicken, black beans and plantains! Everything I've ever eaten here has been delicious. The cevechi is outstanding. In the summer you can sit outside with your toes in the sand! True beach food!
