Went there for brunch and got one of the breakfast options, the food was very tasty and the margaritas were really well done. Extremely friendly and helpful service, and a nice space with outdoor option.

Food was good but not great. Prices were reasonable. Yuca fries were a highlight. Service was satisfactory, albeit slow (but friendly). Took a while to get seated.

Very close to the authentic Venezuelan food with many options and very well adapted to the London public. We always come back. We specially like the tequeños, the desayuno criollo and tres leches for dessert.

Our waiter was very welcoming and attentive. The food was lovely, just what we needed on a rainy day. Thanks for looking after us. They even have a dog menu! The dog loved it.

Great food,I had the veggie arepa and it was delicious. Would also recommend the plantain. Reasonable priced and tasty cocktails. Service was very good as well, staff were friendly. Only negative is that I was a bit cold because it was march and the arches are difficult to heat

I love this restaurant but it has become so automated. You order and pay online and have practically no personal service at all. When we were leaving, there was no-one even to say thank you and goodbye to. It had such a lovely, lively Latino atmosphere and now it doesn't feel right. And on top of that you still pay a 12.5% service charge. Don't see the point!!

I've eaten here many times and whilst the food is still amazing and the service was good, one thing that is still extremely slow are drink orders, perhaps they need to have more bar staff? Now like many other restaurants you can scan the code on the table to order and you can share a tab so it's linked to the same table. It can be tricky as the owner of the tab ordered drinks and paid service charge and the same time we ordered the food on his tab and also paid a service charge where normally this would just be on once. You do have a choice to omit the charge but good to be aware especially if one party is sorting drinks whilst others sort the food and if you reordering too. We highly recommend this place as food has always been amazing with good ambience.

Friendly staff, tasty food! Eggs were well-seasoned, nice choice of smaller more affordable plates for a light bite if you don't fancy a full blown meal.

We were definitely excited to try out Arepa & Co on our recent trip to London and stay in the Bethnal Green neighborhood, but left our dining experience extremely frustrated and disappointed with the service we received. My wife and I dined there with our two children (12 and 7). It took at least 20 minutes to get our first round of drinks (a paloma and a glass of red wine), we had to ask for an extra decanter of water twice before we received it. Once our drinks finally arrived and we had finished them during the middle of our meal, they again sat empty for another 25 minutes before we decided to cut our losses and request the check... which didn't come for another 10 minutes after we asked for it. The food was certainly the highlight of the meal. Everything was fresh and tasty, although they were not able to bring us hot sauce we requested for our arepas until right before we finished eating them. Maybe it was a bad day for the wait staff, but overall it was quite disappointing.

Food and drinks were really tasty! The service though was very poor, with waiters not caring too much for us, music was too loud which made it difficult to hear each other. Overall, would recommend for a quick bite but not for longer dinner

The food is great. tasty and well presented. The service was slow and random. Not writing down orders is flashy but forgetting them is not. Our starters were just skipped without a word of explanation

Amazing food!!! I’ve been to their other location which is lovely as it’s by the river but I loved the Bethnal Green one for the interior and it’s also much bigger! The owner is so so so lovely and when I say I’m OBSESSED with their chips, if you go there and order nothing else, get the chips! The cocktails are great too and I saw they have a 2for1 happy hour deal!
