“A Great Find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2014

I was feeling adventurous and tried a new cuisine because of a great Yelp review. The owner thoroughly explained each dish and between the four of us we all tried something different. Everything was delicious. We were impressed that the owner cooked all of our meals from scratch and they all were beautifully presented and tasted delicious. We loved the freshness of the ingredients. The owner served us complementary desserts. The coconut cake and flan were to die for. All four of us would definitely recommend this restaurant.

“Off to a Good Start”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2014

We're from out of town, but we think that this place started out a counter-service establishment that morphed into a sit-down, full-service restaurant. The dishes are tasty and very interesting, but the size of the servings, and the presentation still have that counter-service feel. Ergo, I highly recommend ordering the full dinner, mainly because the size of the entrées is on the small side, although they are commensurate with the price. The full dinner looks to be the best value if you're hungry. The service was spotty, but we think that will improve as they get the hang of it. Best of all, the proprietors are the sweetest people you'd ever want to meet. We really want them to succeed, so this review is written with good intentions and wishes for their success. We hope to see much progress when we visit again on our next trip.

“Elote restaurant in Golden, Great Venezuelan Food good prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2014

I went for dinner to the ELOTE in Golden and I was really surprised for the great food and value they offer. I got a meat dish with plantains and beans was great, desserts were excellent, I really recommend this place for its value, food and athmosphere!
