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

If you want to taste typical Venezuelan food at its best, try this place. Though the customers seemed to be mostly locals, we were given a menu in English. Early Monday evening it was busy but not crowded.

The location is ideal for when you are bargain shopping in Centro, Porlamar's shopping Mecca. A few blocks from The Cathedral and Plaza Bolivar, it is a great lunch or dinner spot and is always busy. Food's great but it's noisy, they need some sound deadening walls and ceiling!
