Alto takes local ingredients and takes them to a high level. A MUST for visitors, but not for backpackers. Is a great formal place where food lovers have a temple.

I would say it is currently the best Venezuelan-food restaurant and one of the bests overall. The entire menu, from appetizers to desserts, is creative, well executed and tasteful. They usually give some truffle popcorn and other small appetizer as a courtesy to begin the meal. Service and ambiance are excellent.

Delicious food! Top local ingredients and served in a special and delicate way. Good wines and awesome desert. A bit expensive but it's worth a visit.
