Tiny and familiar, it's hard to find a spot in this old restaurant, but keep trying because it is unique. Family recipes and fresh made food. Come hungry.

I wonder how in such little restaurant the can make food from out of this World. The lobster salad, the grouper in green sauce, everything they make is undescribable good. A great friendly place. My favorite restaurant in Caracas.
