“They make you feel like at home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013 via mobile

It's a very small place but they make you feel like at home. Before you decide what to drink they bring you a selection of juices for you to taste. The menu is in Spanish and English. The food is amazing and what is incredible is the kindness of the owner! He came to my table to make sure everything was ok and we ended up talking for a while. I haven't tried any Venezuelan food before but I can tell you that is delicious!

“Nice little place; very good people”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Very good food and excellent hosts. Husband and daughters host; mother cooks real good. Epanadas and arepas are made with corn masa not wheat. Try the lemonade sweetened with suger cane juice (why don't they do that in Hawaii?). Hard to find. Little place on Constituyentes passed 10th Ave on the north side with just a few tables but as good as everyone is saying. Not a long walk from 5th. Very affordable. Well worth looking for.

Lovely restaurant, we missed it the first time we tried to find it but found it tonight, host was so genuine and lovely. Tasting the Venezuelan drinks was a nice touch. Host arranged n appetiser tasting plate (yum) and the kaxapas were awesome! Definitely go, especially f you're looking for vegetarian options and fantastic service

“Perfect service, lovely food and so affordable!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

As a traveler on a limited budget I was attracted to Kaxapa for the reasonably priced food. The lady that served us was so friendly and explained the menu to us in English - giving us an understanding of Venezuelan cuisine. She also brought a free selection of different traditional drinks for us To sample which we then purchased.
The food was so tasty and a refreshing change from the usual Latin American cuisine. We even came back the very next night.
"Excellente!"
