The menu board was full of lovely suggestions but - thanks to the President - most of the stuff wasn't available. The Venezuelan mantra of "dame dos" (I'll take... More

I have had dinner at Positano El Sambil a couple of times. Both times I liked the food. Service was fast too. Prices very reasonable!
