Cheap, cheerful and delicious with friendly staff. Had the vegetarian arepa without cheese. Had like an oriental taste which was delicious. Perfect for a light lunch stop. Bit off the beaten track but would recommend.

Great staff, and good prices. We didn’t love the arepas (the corn meal is kind of tough) but the stuffings inside were delicious. You can also get those dishes served stir-fry or other styles. We had a big meal for two for ~$17

A really nice little restaurant with a great variety of affordable dishes! We tried several arepa’s and a vegetarian dish which were all amazing! The staff is welcoming and very friendly! A great way of eating traditional Colombian food!

The place is not so impressive and the juices too. Is more like a place for students, where everything is lazy and good as it is. I will not come back for sure.

I googled “best arepas in Cartagena,” and this place came up. Since I haven’t really had any tasty arepas while in Colombia, I thought it was time. I was certainly disappointed! I ordered La Reina Pepita, which was supposed to be filled with chicken and...More

Oh my word, these were amazing. Just go. Trust me. I first had an arepa in a crappy restaurant in Santa Marta, and almost swore off trying them again. Boy, am I glad I gave them another try!
