About Arepa & Co - Bethnal Green
Arepa & Co is the home of the Venezuelan food in London. Our food is a mix of authentic Venezuelan recipes and our own creative expression which are inspired by Venezuelan ingredients. We are located under the arches of the overground on Paradise Row, the trendy street of Bethnal Green. Our food is a combination of cornbread, back beans, fried plantains, avocados and coupled with tasty shredded beef, pork loin or delicious roasted vegetables. We offer a selection of small and big plates to both share and indulge in. Brunch is definitely not to be missed and in case you ask, we also have a broad variety of vegan and vegetarian dishes and most of our food is gluten free.
Great food., good service! Went with a group of 15 for lunch and it was great. Also fantastic in planning ahead!
Excellent traditional food with products from Venezuela.
Awful service. We arrived to find our booked table wasn't ready, which would be ordinarily fine if that was the only problem. We were shortly seated to our table which did not have a Menu on it. After 10mins of no one coming to our table I went up and asked for a menu. Another 10mins passed and still no waiter came to our table, so again I had to grab someone’s attention. 5mins later we gave our order to the waiter (2 drinks and 2 mains). 15 mins later (now 35 mins after we sat down) we still had no drinks or even water on the table. Our food came - and it was tasty, but I had to remind the waiter for our drinks. They were clearly understaffed that night , but the place is small, and it shouldn't take over half an hour to get a drink. On the night we didn’t kick up a fuss about the fact no waiter acknowledged us the whole time were there, and they didn’t seem that bothered anyway. I’ve never complained or written a bad review before, but the service was so bad I felt the need to. Such a shame because the food did taste good. But it was the worse service I’ve ever had in a restaurant.
All super. Had Sunday brunch. Will be back... yummy food.
Friendly service, great food and lively atmosphere
Great little place with friendly service. Fried chicken Arepa is highly recommended
Comici Arepa and Co have unos cuántos años, y la experiencia fué muy especial, como estar en Venezuela. Lamentablemente, esta experiencia fue todo lo contrario, la carne mechada era carne hervida deshilachada insípida, las carahotas negras simplemente hervidas, el plátano con una salsa agria extraña....hace años tenían chicha ahora nada....que pena...
Fantastic food and great customer service. I love this place!
Great food and service for Sunday brunch! Will be back.
great food , and a nice to place..
The staff were excellent: warm, friendly and funny. The beans were a bit running and egg underdone which were a little bit off putting. However, overall, great! The arepa was perfect! :) I will definitely visit again
It would be great if they had the dinner menu throughout the day.
Amazing Place. Food is sooooo good omg.
Great food and service - will definitely be back
I had amazing time! Loved the music loved the food!
Great food with a fantastic and interesting range
Good communications re booking. Food seemed to lack variety, balance or quality. Service was okay but not outstanding. Lot of competition on Paradise Row...I would want to try other places before returning to Arepa.
5* all round! We had a brilliant waitress who talked us through the menu and followed up on which options were gluten free. Food was delicious, quick and great value. Muchas gracias
The chairs damaged my dress, design feature they may be, but if they catch on material they are not a great idea! I loved the food and am glad to finally see a Venezuelan restaurant in London, I think what we had was probably better than the arepas I had when in the country :)
Delicious food in a great space. Will definitely go back.
Food was outstanding! The atmosphere was great. However, service was very slow and coffee machine was out of service.
Great delicious meal, buzzy atmosphere, attentive service, just a bit of delay with the bill due to 'systems error'.
I've eaten here a couple of times and the food is amazing, authentic and packed full of flavour. Lots of vegan options. However, the service is terrible. Mistakes are made with the orders and some of the staff appear miserable.
