I have eaten here several times and have never been disappointed. Lots of authentic South American dishes prepared perfectly. As a matter fact, my family and I were in South America just a few weeks ago, and I found the cuisine at this restaurant even better than what we ate down there. Do not miss the fried sweet Plaintain's nor... More

This is literally my favorite restaurant in Columbus! The service at the location is better than the brewery district. But i think the menu downtown is a little bigger. I have never gotten ANYTHING from here i did not love. If you like latin food you HAVE to try this place!

This was my first visit, and I was impressed. It is smaller inside, with a number of 4 top tables and a number of tables next to a longer bench that can be set up for larger parties. There is also a nice bar area, as well. There were some good happy hour specials, and drink prices were very reasonable... More

My husband and I have been here a couple of times, and we love it. The arepas, which are hard to find, are excellent. I recommend going during happy hour and taking advantage of the deals, even though the restaurant isn't pricey to begin with. My only complaint is it's noisy in the restaurant, so if you're looking for a... More

When confronted with a flight delay long before I went to the airport, I looked up and found this great little treasure of a restaurant to try vs. attempting to just settle for another airport meal. What a treat!! My server and bartender Terri was delightful, with recommendations on traditional South American beverages, Tapas and main courses. She hit a... More

Arepazo is a great restaurant near the Main Street in Gahanna. The staff is very friendly and happy to adjust menu items as needed. The food is delicious and priced appropriately.

Always amazing. Try the Empenaditas! Great atmosphere, great service, and always amazing food. Great authentic taste of South America. A "must try" for anyone in Gahanna.

This restaurant is walking distance from our office and it offers tasty and filling fare. The fish tacos are SUPERB! You will not go wrong with the burrito either. We've been there many times and have always enjoyed the food. Service is also excellent and the prices are reasonable.

I have frequented Arepazo for several years. We always have a great meal there. I recently took a friend to lunch there. She had never been there. We both had great lunch meals on the nice small patio. The corncakes were her favorite and I always love the Patacon.
