A word from Guayoyo Restaurant
Guayoyo, located on the corner of First Avenue and 4th Street, is a Venezuelan bistro owned by chefs Carmen Isturiz and Masanobu Ishikura. Although Guayoyo bases its roots in Venezuela, it is also influenced by different cultures and offers an inspired menu that reflects the diversity of the lower east side and Carmen and Ishi's home cooking. Guayoyo offers traditional Venezuelan specialties such as Pabellon Criollo and Arepas, alongside Duck Confit Rolls, Black Bean Mojo Burgers, and anything in between.

    Waitress clearly didn't want to be there...messed up order and just generally lacking any sort of congeniality.

    Went here with a group of nine. They accommodated us on the day of, which was great. The food was ok. Nothing extra special...rice and beans were bland. The music was good but it was somebody's birthday and the restaurant sang for about 10 minutes. Was fun at first, but got to be a bit much.

    The food was really good. Very unusualy dishes and every one was delicious and very reasonably priced. It's not the fanciest restaurant; really a neighborhood place, but very good service.

    Delicious arepas, esp the camarones! great service, as the staff accommodated a large party. Their main entrees looked delicious, but I stayed with the arepas. A great alternative to the other arepas place.
