Esther, the owner and the chef of the restaurant is the more friendly person you can find helping you in all. She cooks, she serve the tables, she advise you about everything... More

The owner of this Kitchen is a student of local cuisine using international techniques, Carmen has staged newspaper reviews. I would spoil your experience if I tell you more. Just go.

Esther - chef, owner, hostess, teacher - clearly enjoys what she does and gives each guest her personal attention. Quite an experience! It's best to previously reserve (+58-416-196-6052; +58-412-357-6322;... More

Esther is a warm and friendly gourmet cook, who creates original and delicious dishes using fresh local ingredients featuring local seafood and herbs from her own garden. The prices seem steep by Venezuelan standards, but a main meal would be about $12 US. Esther has transformed the elegant old Spanish style house into an interesting and comfortable space, with lots... More
