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.
Amazing. Just wish there was a nearer restaurant, somewhere in SW London would be great :)
Really innovative and original food, great service and if there is a criticism it's just that we are used to be served our dishes sequentially not all at once! But we will return so much on the menu to try!
We had a really great brunch here for my friends birthday. The staff went out of their way to ensure we have a good time. The cocktails were fab too.
The food was fantastic! Really unique flavours that I’ve never experienced before. Also, very close to the station, easily accessible. We will absolutely be visiting again!
Usually here for a workday lunch but went for Saturday brunch this time and it was just as excellent
Dined here on Sunday night with my fiancé and his dad. It was busy at 6:30pm when we arrived which is testament to how good this restaurant is! The food was absolutely delicious!! Different and exciting and one of the best desserts I’ve EVER had (tres leches cake), I’ve been dreaming of it today... Beautiful flavours, decor, ambience, the lot. Came away with a very full and happy belly and can’t wait to go back. Really good value for money too, go Arepa and Co, you won’t regret it! Xxx
Food was lovely and a refreshing change. The atmosphere again was fantastic.service was a little slower than expected but there was only two waiting staff , for me this is not an issue but I can imagine for some It would be.
Really lovely food in great atmosphere. The service was efficient and friendly. Would definitely visit again.
Wonderful service and delicious food.
Food was great. Service was awful. Waitress was rude and clearly felt that checking ingredients for allergy ingredients (which were stated on the booking) was too much hassle. Examples being "oh god" and roll of the eyes when asked to check something and then within view of our table moaning to the manager about the requests made (all related to gluten free which the restaurant markets itself as aware of on its menu). To top it off she ignore the request for no beans on a meal and brought it over with them, barely apologised for the mistake. Manager was polite when we complained but only knocked the "discretionary" service charge off the bill. Such a shame the restaurant was let down by the service. Wouldn't go back and will not recommend it.
The beef was great!
Very slow service, basically ignored. Food was good but too much ice in cold drinks.
All the food is very good And very quick service
Staff very helpful, even though I screwed up my booking and then changed it again 90 minutes before we arrived. Food great, service great, music could be a little softer....
Very interesting and tasty food, must try Venezuelan again!
La comida Venezolana mas rica en Londres! Gracias.
We didn't order any meat items but everything we had was delicious. I'd particularly recommend the Yaca Chips and the dish with whipped cheese. These guys really know what they're doing with cheese!
A large group of us visited Arepa & Co with a Venezuelan in our midst. The food was authentic and very tasty and the staff were very helpful. The only slight downfall was that it was quite noisy so any conversations at the table had to be shouted.
Amazing food and cocktails, great service had a good time
Tasty food and lots of gluten free options which is great. But it was more casual than I expecting and the food was a little dry, more sauce would have been good
Very cool atmosphere - spacious, friendly staff, unusual and tasty food. Prices are extremely reasonable for London, and we left with full stomachs. Will come here again!
Food was delicious. Had tried the dinner menu previously and this time we went for brunch. Equally amazing. Very good service as well. I totally recommend it!
We had our team Christmas party for 20 people here. The booking process was a little clunky but the guys were great at accommodating all our last minute changes. The food was brilliant and it was great for us to have the mezzanine floor all to ourselves with a designated and very attentive waiter. The service was great in general and the price was very reasonable. The general comment from the team was that if was great to have something different instead of the usual underwhelming, mass produced Christmas set menus and everyone really enjoyed the great food and the great atmosphere. Thanks guys!
