Enough said. Go. Eat. Enjoy.
I have tried most of the items on the menu and all of them are delicious. This family really knows what they are doing.

“Amazing food, great service, vegetarian options too!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2012

Came here for lunch last week, blink and you'll miss it! It was pretty warm sitting outside but was worth it!
Delicious empanadas, we had the "plantain" style tortas. They were very delicious and is a great option if you're gluten intolerant instead of eating a wrap or bread.

The drinks were delicious, the staff was attentive and very sweet. Please come here in Playa Del Carmen, one of our best meals and very affordable!

“Tasty Venezuelan food with great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2012

We have been passing by this place for the past few weeks and heard all good about it, so we finally tried it on our own. We were welcomed very friendly and were asked if we want a English or Spanish menu and if we'd like some introduction to the Venezuelan dishes they serve. Then we got to try 3 different drinks, Maracuya, Guayabana and Pinole-(a somewhat sweet Lemon based drink); very nice, just a bit too sweet but with some mineral water, it is just great. We had then the sopa del res, very nice and one of the arapes. Then we had the Venezuelan plate (70 Pesos and about the most expensive, if you can call this expensive:)? dish). The plate has rice with chopped beef, cheese and frijoles (given I don't like frijoles, they changed them to veggies, which were lovely) and one plain arape. We had a long chat with the owner which is very friendly and has a great attitude towards guest. Only drawback is, as has been mentioned by many, that the place has no ambience and is very small, besides a big restaurant...Else, than that it is great, we will definitively go back. And one thing to note, they are closed on Monday.

“Wonderful service and tasty food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2012

The service, friendliness and effort of the owner and his family is some of the best I've ever experienced. We were offered a selection of juices to try on arrival and recommended a starter including delicious shredded beef. The setting is basic with tables set out almost at the roadside with simple plastic chairs and tables. Food is delicious and affordable, certainly justify it's impressive trip advisor rating.
