Best on the Island

The atmosphere in this groovey Pampatar bistro (now the gastronomic centre of Margarita) with changeing paintings on the wall is buzzy and fun. They sensibly keep the options to 4 starters, 4 Linguine, and 4 mains, all carefully cooked with clever little drizzles of sauce round the outside of the... read more

Having been an advocate of Casa Caranta for many, many years, I am sad to report that the standards have slipped in terms of service. Thankfully the food remains the same. We had looked forward to a return visit to Casa Caranta and had booked umpteen weeks in advance to guarantee a table. On arrival, we noted that the owner... More

Really cool restaurant with nice typical Margarita musicians playing romantic songs. Great place to take a loved. Lovely waiters. Great food and nice wine selection. 1 WARNING - the house wine served by the glass sucks bug time! Take a bottle.

Cozy restaurant with great dishes. It doesnt have a huge range of option, 5-6 choices for each course which makes it easier to choose what to eat. And they all sound delicious. We were 5 and ordered different dishes and we were all satisfied with what we got. If you are ever around you should definetly give it a try!

My husband and I go to Margarita often and love eating out. Casa Caranta is definitely our favourite restaurant on the island. The food is to die for - a great fusion between Italian and Venezuelan dishes. The atmosphere is beautiful, both inside and outside. There is often live music inside at night, so keep that in mind.

Had some nice Vietnamese wrap for appetizer, tuna and avocado salad, good pastas, OK tira de asado, great fish-dorado and nice coconut cheesecake. We all enjoyed our meal here. Excellent service: fiendly and efficient.

Went there three times in two days. Both owners are present most of the time, overseeing service, mingling with guest. Wonderful experience each time. Had a different entree each time and was never disappointed. Will be back!

This is without a doubt the best restaurant in the island. Firstable the atmosphere is really cool, the food is good in general, but my catalana fish wasn't really tasty. Antonio is an awesome waiter, very professional and an excellent person. Ask for the fettuccines they are the best here...
