We had supper here in late July for the sole reason that we read the reviews on Trip Advisor. We probably never would have found it, but we are so glad we did! It's housed in an old house with extremely friendly and helpful staff. We had never had Venezuelan food before, and the waitress told us the Dinner Capahapa was the favorite. What a tasty meal with the sweet corn pancake stuff with beef and veggies. The location is just a block from the main street, and the outdoor dining was delightful. If you eat here, you won't regret it!

We loved this restaurant. We have lived in Venezuela and were craving the Arepas. It's in a very quaint house with great decor. We highly recommend this place.

Unusual food. Guess that's why I didn't care much for it. Reserved a table, but a group of guests sat themselves at it, so we were put in the back room, which is the bar. The entertainment was not very good and made it hard to talk with friends. The chef was not there that day, so limited selection.

We were not expecting to find a somewhat exotic restaurant in the mountains of West Virginia, but this one was a pleasant surprise. We ordered pork and chicken arepas and empanadas and enjoyed both of them. We would share a meal if we went back as neither of us could finish the meal. We had started it with chips and black bean salsa, which was unlike anything we have had before and really excellent. It was a pleasant day so we ate on the patio. The service was excellent. If you like Latin American food, you are in for a treat!

I enjoyed the surf and turf chapacha I got here. It had interesting and good flavors, especially when using the salsas they serve it with. They also have a good beer selection.
