It was terrible! I ask for a pasta bolognese and the beef was PUTRID. It was a fly inside. I informed the situation to the owner and I was insulted! Please think about this before eating there!

Moderately priced food and good service, something you do not get in many places in Venezuela and should be highly appreciated... this restaurant is run by the same management as "El Remo" and "Lugar de Encuentro" on 4 de mayo in Porlamar, which can all be recommended. If you don't like the busy and loud atmosphere, you shouldn't go to... More

If you are after one of the best Fish soups in the island, go there. Trully good. I only rate it a 3 since the drink was not the best I had. Service is good, a little busy at times but they are excellent and efficient.

I have visited this place since I was 4 years old when we went to Venezuela annually and we would always go about 6 times every December. The place is air conditioned to high hell, it is ALWAYS packed. For a reason. The waiters are always great with people despite being busy, bread is always on the table straight away... More

After reading all the great reviews we thought we would try it out. The staff is really tremendous and completely unlike every where else on the island; they actually hustle and very quickly. The buzz in the restaurant is fantastic. The food looked great as we stood at the back waiting for a table. You would think it would make... More

The restaurant offer local and Spanish food. The portions are almost impossible to finish because they are HUGE. The price for the food is not expensive at all and if you want you can request the food to be given to take home if you couldn't finish it (almost everybody do that). I highly recommend this restaurant if you are... More
