Absolutely incredible. Arepas were divine, bread was nice and toasty, and had incredible texture. Every menu item was gluten-free (except the beers). This is an absolute must-go.

Dedicated GF restaurant, no worries about cross contamination. I ordered the shrimp arepa and the copitas de plantano. Both were delicious!

Completely gluten free and absolutely delicious! I went here with my non-gluten free parents and they were just as impressed with the food as I was. The ribs here were some of the best ribs we’ve ever had, we had the arepas sampler and all were delicious and the ceviche was incredible! One of the best gluten free restaurants I’ve ever found I highly recommend going here!

Dedicated gf. Our server was very knowledgeable about food allergies and the menu. Fortunately, he sorted me that the arepas bread contains milk and steered me to Whole Fried Red Snapper which I would definitely recommend! They only serve gluten removed beer, so I enjoyed a fresh pineapple margarita. Cheers!

Best food I’ve eaten in my life! The Cerda arepa is to die for, and the maiz de la rueda appetizer was absolutely incredible. Gluten free tres leches was so amazing as well. My family (who all eat gluten) was obsessed with this meal and we’re already talking about the next time we’ll make a trip to nola just to eat here again!

The food was amazing. I enjoyed every bite and loved that I didn't have to search the menu for things that I could eat. While it was very a expensive meal for my family of four at $160, it was delicious.

Honestly the only word that comes to mind is ecstasy! This is by far the best restaurant in (dare I say) the state of Louisiana! The entire restaurant is gluten free, and although the menu can be a bit confusing for non Spanish speakers, every single thing my party tried (6 different dishes) was to die for! The atmosphere was traditional Columbia Creole fusion and the service was incredibly friendly. Stuck on the menu, I highly recommend the arepas or the aborrajdos. They even had dessert, the tres leche is amazing! Please please please, go to this restaurant!! You and your taste buds will not regret it!!

This was our 2nd visit to Mais Arepa and it was as delicious as we remembered from our last trip. My daughter loves the empanadas! We were also pleasantly surprised this trip that they had GF Tres Leches and it was so delicious. Their arepas are also amazing!!

If you go to New Orleans and don’t eat at Mais, you have missed the best part of NOLA. Everything on the menu is gluten free and everything is beyond delicious. A little off the beaten path and mostly home to locals and it’s so easy to see why. The atmosphere is fantastic and the food is beyond words incredible!

I had the arepa with the mozzarella and marinated chicken... delicious. As a celiac, very rarely am I able to order off the menu without saying “gluten free”, “gluten allergy”, and “cross contamination” a billion times, so going somewhere dedicated gluten free was a treat in its own... but wow. The arepa was delicious. Like... I was about to cry delicious. I would sell my soul for another arepa.
