“Not what it was once”
Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant is up on a hill and has a great view of Caracas. The service is ok but the food is not what it used to be.
It seems that the chef uses a lot of cream in all the pasta dishes.
To start, we shared a beef carpaccio that was ok but not great. My wife ordered the farfalle al limone , grangio e scampi which was mediocre (very strong lemon flavor, no crab raw at all and only 4 shrimps). My pasta , fetuccini zi teresa with seafood (pink sauce with scallops, mussels and shrimps) was quite good.
For dessert, we shared a "creme brulėe" which was ok.
In summary, restaurant with inconstant quality.

“Not what it used to be”
Reviewed August 8, 2012

This was one of the premier restaurants in Caracas around 2001. It is not what it used to be. The food is poorly prepared, the service is poor and the place looks badly in need of an upgrade. The only aspects in which the restaurant remains outstanding is the view of the city. If you are willing to pay premium for an extraordinary view of Caracas do visit MEZZANOTTE but don't be disappointed if the food is not great.
