If you want to get serious in meat!!!

This place is iconic in Caracas. Cuts can vary from US to South Cone, with a lot of indulgencies (gulty pleasures?) as side dishes, but It could be expensive if you ask many of them. My recomendations: a) Appetizers: Grouper (Mero) Ceviche, Telita Chesse, "cachapa de hoja", Chistorras; B)Entrees... read more

This place is a little dark and being on a midlower level, feels a little tight! Service is quite good and meat is also quite nice... Again, Benezuelan style cooking meat! Ask for roji arrebatado if you like rare and charred on the outside! They also have good salads... Their wine list is fine!

The service is superb. The waiters are very attentive and ensure you glass is always full. The steak was cooked to perfection.

Do anybody remember this quote, back from the late 80´s or early 90's? If you want to do some serious dining, this place is the one. This place has been around for well over 35+ years and this is seniority. My favorite is Bifé de Chorizo (a cut from the Southern Cone of America) and when you stare at it,... More

One of the best beef restaurants in Caracas. Service was above average for Caracas. All over recommended as well for business as family dinner.

Had a business meal here with hosts, all beef eaters. And we were not disappointed. I had ribeye, done rare, and correctly rare. But the surprise was the bread, hot and tasty and fresh. Salad was so/so, but I had a cold beer and it was very good. Service was above average, but did not try the desserts.

I have eaten here several times both for lunch and dinner and the food is consistently good, as is service. Highly recommended. As soon as you walk in you can smell the grilled meat cooking in the centre of the restaurant. It's a nice bustling atmosphere, and usually packed for dinner. Good wine list and the wines are stored in... More

Very, very tasty! And 3 helpings (finish your meat, and a new, sizzling, freshly made one arrives at your plate). Service & value for money so-so. However: if you can exchange your $ on the black market, the value for money is exellent....
