The food was amazing (had from the most simple snacks like tequeños, to an amazing seafood rice), prices just like most places of Caracas; but what makes the difference here is the service because is superb!! don't miss this restaurant!!

This is the best seafood restaurant in Caracas. Expensive like water in hell but totally worth it! Hahaha Paella, the hot sauce they make is delicious, the calderara and the caldereta de mero.

This is one of the best Spanish restaurants in Caracas. Great food, I had one of the best Paellas that I have ever tried. This dish is for 2 people but 4 of us ate and were super full. They have live music, so it is great entertainment. Even thought the restaurant has a low ceiling it was not noisy... More

We have been in Venezuela for the past six months and have used some reviews from Trip Advisor. Most of the time they are spot on , but not this time. The service was good,... More
