This intimate restaurant in old Gahanna is 2 blocks from Creekside. Menu offers an interesting variety of Mexican and South American tapas and dinners. Thursday nights feature bottles of wine at half price. Overstuffed breaded fish tacos are tasty, filling and challenging to eat neatly.

Checked this restaurant out per recommendations of friends. Small...go early or plan to wait on the sidewalk...snow, rain, or sun. Genuinely good South American tapas. Limited wine menu but don't be a snob. Go, enjoy the options. Owner joined us midway through the meal, which made the experience unique and memorable. Support this local gem. We will be back!

Great food. Small, quaint place. Busy on weekends, but worth the wait. Take out is an excellent option here. Sit at the bar and enjoy a cocktail while waiting.

My wife and youngest daughter met for lunch on her 1/2 day. My wife was on a vacation day. The $8.00 Margarita was big and icy but was kind of flat. Plenty of tequila but not very flavorful. Disappointing. Lunch consisted of steak & eggs with fried plantains. Properly cooked, fresh, tasty, excellent! A pork and cheese Empanada-very big and... More

We tried Arepazo for the first time on a Saturday night and had quite a long wait as they don't take reservations. it is a very small restaurant in the Gahanna location, but very charming and energetic. There were really friendly people in line and everyone we spoke with said it was worth the wait, and they were correct. The... More

Great Latin infused menu with tapa sized portions. A hidden gem in Old Gahanna. Drinks are top notch as well. If you are looking for Mexican chain restaurant style food, this is not for you. But if you are looking for authentic Latin infused menu items, you must try this cozy restaurant. Patio seating a must in the summer.

This was really a nice find, as the cuisine is similar to Puerto Rican food, which is a staple of our household. As such, it was easy for us to find dishes that agreed with us, and we really enjoyed all that we had. We had a couple of tapas dishes as an appetizer, which disappeared very quickly, and followed...

Everything I have ever had here was delicious and fresh. Plantains and cilantro sauce are the best! Well with the visit but go early as there are not a lot of tables and can fill up.

Arepazo is a great Latin grill. Very nice atmosphere. Located in a great small part of town. I have tried several dishes here and all was excellent. Emanadas are unbelievable.

Easy access from airport. Easy parking after 5 Manu was so good with many countries but especially the Colombian and Venezuelan options. Bandeja paisa and picada. Awesome. I was happily welcome by Susana who happens to be Colombian and very friendly. Great service. Loved the food. Loved the laid back setup.
