If you like meat you will like this

Somewhat unusual decor, think ski lodge meets 1970s indoor gardens and the like and you get the idea. Heavy focus on meat and the meat was delicious, well cooked and in some cases cooked in front of you on charcoal grills in the dining room. I suspect in the USA and the UK this would be banned by... read more

As a Brazilian point of view, this is the number one Churrascaria in Caracas. Great service and fast! Great wine list! Excellent types of puntas and lomitos! Good deserts! Good to go with children

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: Black Angus "Punta Trasera" or Bife de Chorizo... in fact: anything... 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.
