This place has clearly jacked up prices since some of the previous reviews were written. 60mil pesos gets you 2 dry grocery store arepas and (wait for it) “corn off the cob” which consists of canned corn, shredded cheese, and crushed potato chips. If you’re looking to spend money on a good meal, go elsewhere. If you’re looking for cheap eats, stick with the street food for an arepa 1/4 the price and 10x as delicious.

Don't miss this! I thought arepas was a Venezuelan dish only but it seems like it is Colombian too! Muy rico...para la arepas

Delicious food, great service & cool vibe.
We didn’t find this place until our last morning in Cartagena, but I know if we would have found it sooner, we would have ate here everyday. The arepas are creative and super delicious. My friends had the plantain dish - super delicious as well. They also make a yummy iced coffee.

Everyone working was super nice and welcoming & they played great music.

After a couple of times of walking by it .. I finally found it ..

The place is really small, but it has a large menu with all the Colombian specialties ...I arrived at 11:00 am and I was the only one there.

I proceeded to order the plain arepa with only cheese and cream ... all I can say was WOW !!!!!!

I also ordered the one with black beans and beef and that was really good ...

For a total of 4 arepas and 2 ice tea's in bottles, my total was 22,000 pesos ... about $7 USD ... totally worth the effort to find it ...

The ladies were so nice and helpful in describing some of the more unconventional arepas ... overall 2 thumbs up !!!

We went here on purpose due to excellent TA reviews. It's not in the prime tourist area of the walled city so you'll have to walk for a while.
The restaurant is very small and colorful and service fast. Prices are average for indoor eating.
We tried 3 kinds of filling but the beef ones appeared the best, so repeated them. The fillings were good and generous in all, but as others said I wasn't satisfied with the arepa taste particularly - it was pretty dry.
