We loved the food! Flavors are very authentic and to remember those we grew up with. There is good balance of savory and sweet flavors. Even local drinks from beer, soda and malta are available. We ordered arepas with beef and cheese, cachapa and empanada and everything was delicious! I was surprised to find even cheese that is similar to our fresh 'telita' cheese, flavor and texture was good. Finally, the attention is great, friendly and warm! Food was ready very fast and we all enjoyed it. I really recommend you to go if you want to taste the home made flavors from Venezuela

Found it on google reviews and went down a side street.The place is so small I nearly missed it.Went in off season so was quieter than usual,but menu is smallish and simple and can taste all food is prepared to order as piping hot when comes out.As far as I'm aware it all family run son on desk father in kitchen,I love to see restaurants like this do well as you can see they take pride with the food they serve.

Ciao

I was told that this restaurante was one of the better ones in Roma. No i dont think, it is Mexican style restaurant. Food simple and use a lot of oil.

Everything we ordered was delicious! The patacon was out of this world! To top it off the family that runs this business is absolutely the most sweetest and with a good sense of humor. My family and I loved our meal and only wish we could have this place closer in Miami. Thank you so much for your delicious cooking. Delicioso.

The food was excellent. I would reccomend Patacones and the Venezuelan beer Polar. The waiter was very friendly.
