This restaurant has a great staff serving the best Spanish and Portuguese food in the whole island. It has an ambiance and incredible service. The owner is always there to help. The Spanish dishes and Portuguese fish recipes are without a doubt the best of the best.

After 15 years visiting this restaurant, I have always eat well. They serve the classical "consome de guacuco" And the "Asopado de mariscos" spectacular as always.

The restaurant is one of the Island's traditions. The service is very efficient. The food is really tasty. Las huevas de Lisa frita son inmejorables!! One of a kind!!! The place is noisy and the decoration is very basic.

This restaurant is one of the most popular places to eat in Porlamar, Margarita Island in Venezuela. They always have fresh fish and seafood dishes, also paella and spanish rice with seafoood. Some of the best fish or seafood are a little expensive. Good service. Very noisy specially at noon, best time to visit after 2 pm.

The staff is very friendly, It is not a big space and has several tables, so it feels a little bit crawded. The paella is delicious and in general food is good.

Has the same owners as "Punto Criollo" and "Lugar de Encuentro" in Porlamar, the food choice varies between the three but is equally good, so is the service. Moderate to high prices, but only compared to the average Venezuelan restaurant with much lower quality of food and "service".

The food was terrible on everyone's account. The fish soup was stinky and had to be returned. The squid was not fresh. The paella was nothing special. The service was OK. I would never go back to this place.
