“Excellent Spanish (Vasca) food”
Reviewed January 29, 2012

One of the best spanish restaurants in Caracas. Pimientos Piquillos, paella, etc- It's not easy to park and you should have care because is not a good zone, but if you take the risk the food worth it

“Had the place to ourselves on a Monday night, and had a great time”
Reviewed March 23, 2010

We went to this restaurant based on comments on Trip Advisor. We wanted to have an authentic Spanish meal which Caracas is famous for (a lot of Spanish settled there). We are so glad we went! The place was not very far at all from the Gran Melia where we were staying. It was still worth going by taxi and not walking since Caracas is very unsafe these days. The place looked like it was closed, but it was not. It was pretty empty. It was a Monday night. But we got GREAT AUTHENTIC Spanish food and excellent service. I would highly recommend this place: Spanish Tortilla, Gambas a la plancha with ajo, pimientos al padron, stuffed piquillo peppers... all delish!

“Classic place - Dieters Need Not Apply”
Reviewed September 28, 2009

Urrutia is an institution in Caracas: an old haunt for politicians, businessmen and power brokers of all kinds looking for fast service and very fresh seafood swimming in yummy olive oil.

Lets be clear here: basque food is often like that. Very tasty. VERY oily. The basic culinary trick at play here is just that: super fresh fish prepared with lots of very high quality olive oil.

You can't really go wrong with that. But healthy? Erm...they don't do healthy at Urrutia.

What's more, the portions are MASSIVE. Just huge. Way, way too much for one person.

All in all, a very good choice if you're very hungry, in a bit of a hurry, and love fish.
