IF you love Ceviche, you'll love the arepas! Their seasonal Brussel sprout and chorizo salad is also a must try.

The food is tremendous here, as are the portions. Try a margarita while you are there - the best around!

So it is worth a visit. Try to go on off hours though, it gets pretty busy. It relatively inexpensive but once you add in the Margaritas or the Sangria,... More

We stumbled upon the Valencia when we were on a road trip, and were pleasantly surprised. The empanada combo was a full-sized lunch, complete with choice of 2 empanadas, beans, and a large pile of rice. The arepas were a hit as well. Service was very friendly and helpful. It's a place where the people who work there clearly enjoy... More

Went here for lunch on Saturday during a snow storm we were having. This was my hubby and another family, so 6 of us total. They were thankfully not too busy - thanks in part to the snow - so we were seated immediately. We all ordered platters of either empanadas and/or arepas. The hardest part is choosing which ones...

Food is great, in nice, warm weather the beach-party vibe is glorious. It's one of the few places around Norwalk that you can take your dog along (just sit along the perimeter). A truly fun place with great food, fun atmosphere and good beers

There is no more delicious restaurant! I love the arepas and all egg dishes for Sunday brunch. Valencias is always a favorite.

Thank Steve B
