We ordered online and delivery so I didn't expect it to come hot - no problems there. However, the food was not very flavorful and the beef and chicken was tough. The maduros were flavorless. I tried to use the sauces that came with the...meals but they were also not great tasting. Again, it might be because of the delay with doing a delivery but....More

Venezuelan food was something new for us. It is not like Mexican or Cuban. Generous portion sizes. The waiter, Eloy, was extremely helpful. We got an order of Tequeno as an appetizer and ordered the Arepa R Peplada and the Mushroom Chicken. Beautiful presentation and...even better flavor. Definitely will return.More

Don’t let the fact that this point is in a strip mall fool you. This place is crazy authentic Latin American food. Delicious, good service, decent pricing. If this is what you’re looking for and you go, give me a helpful vote!

We LOVE this place. The food is amazing and the service is outstanding. We grab the three most popular items abs all four of us share. The kids love it and my husband enjoys the flavors. It is a must find with in Orlando.

Found this place via Trip Advisor and it certainly lived up to its high rating. Delicious Venezuelan food. Many varieties of Arepa’s. The Santa Barbara was fantastic as was the Tostaditas de Maiz. The Cachapa Queso Mano (we added shredded beef) was our favorite item....Delicious empanadas for appetizers. Restaurant also has a full bar. It’s in a strip mall but don’t let that turn you away.More

Need a break from the plethora of chain restaurants that is Orlando, this place will not disappoint. This was my first exposure to Venezuelan food but it will not be my last.

We stayed at the Hilton Tuscany Village which was right across the street from this restaurant. It's in a strip mall with a Publix and Starbucks. Very unassuming. Another hotel guest told us we should try so we did and WOW! Our server, Antonella, was...so sweet and helpful and service was amazing. We got 4 empenadas (cheese, chicken, beef, and a shredded beef/black bean/plantain) and an arepa and Q'Kenan bowl. ALL amazing! The empanadas were out of this world. Prices were very fair. Blueberry Mojitos... need I say more. It's a must if you're in the Orlando area!More

Good place to go and get away from all the chain restaurants. Modest storefront hides a place with an interesting menu featuring Latin American food. Reasonable prices with great service.

Stunning restaurant! We are so proud of this restaurant. The food, service and the atmosphere are amazing. Honestly we got the authentic Venezuelan taste. Tequeńos, arepitas, empanadas, patacón and more. We will come back for Hallacas and Polar beer. Thanks Michelle for your attention

Honesty up front here. . . We try to visit every time we come to Orlando because it is THAT good! We haven't been here since 2019 however, when they were just beginning to expand into adjacent storefront. Our favorite server, Jose, is no longer...working here, but tonight William did a good job at starting to take his place. We brought family with us that just moved to the area. They were a bit hesitant, but once they took a bite of the tequenos they were hooked. As a table we ordered carne mechada empanada, q'kenan bowl, tequenos, arepa carne mechada, arepa pernil, and the holiday plate that comes with hallaca, pan de jamón, pernil, and chicken salad. The overall winners for the table were tequenos and empanada. Everything was delicious too, but those we were still talking about as we were leaving. Also they sell whole loaves of pan de jamón. So we had to buy one to bring home for some special people to try. Keep it up q'kenan and we will see you on our next trip.More

My wife and I visited here for the first time and are returning tomorrow! The food was incredible, authentic and had so much flavor. Our server was great, he told us about the history of the restaurant and why he loved FL. We had the...chicken and vegetable soup, and the arepa. Large portions. Delicious, would recommend to anyone.More
