This has been for quite some time the Best restaurant in Caracas for me. The menu is always changing with sophisticated dishes, the service is impeccable and the wine selection superior. We recommend the degustation menu, which is exquisite!

I've been in Alto twice for business dinners and it was a wonderful experience every time. The food comes on small portions that brings the best of our flavors up to cooking experience and technique. Ají dulce, chocolate, casabe, plátano, and great proteins are the main characters. I loved the Caraotas en dos tiempos and Pastel de cazón. I highly... More

We went to Alto to celebrate with my family and it was fantastic. The service personnel finally knew what they were doing, which is difficult to find in Caracas, and the food was excellent, comparable to great restaurants abroad. We had the "degustación" menu and loved every plate. The portions are just right, even a little big for the main... More

Me and my girlfriend went in particular to taste the cuisine of Carlos Garcia, since his name has become attached to the firmament of the current greats and the opportunity presented itself. The food was approaching the sublime. Our choices were the Alto Menu where we received small portions of most of the plates on the menu, and Carlos being... More

You want to try the amazing food of carlos garcia and his mix of favors to prepare an elaborated food with typical ingredients. All the dishes are an amazing new experience. The list of wines and prossecos is fantastic. Service is personalized. You get your table the whole night. No pressure to leave

I had a friend who kept raving about this place, they knew the chef, Carlos and they had wanted to take me here for a long time. I only got around to going a while back and have to say that it was INCREDIBLE! I am always surprised to find such a great place here in Caracas after so many... More

This restaurant is probably among the top 5 in Caracas. Its service and quality are very high in general. Food is excellent. I've been only once and unfortunately we felt the service a little bit unfocused some times. Nowadays this is a restaurant that I want to visit again and try new plates since the general experience is still great.

We were surprised by the excellent dining experience we had. We tasted many different dishes, and each of them was just perfect, both taste and presentation. The menu is also very appealing, short enough to guarantee quality and long enough to choose from. The chef is an incredibly talented young man, the service is spotless. Pricy? Yes, but money well...
