This is an Icon in Venezuelan cuisine. Very small place located in the centre of Caracas, you must go there and be prepared to get the best taste for La Candelaria. It's aaa must if you visit Caracas and have to go to La Candelaria.

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.

After a recent visit to this restaurant, I could appreciate that in spite of many things food and attention still is as good as in the recent [ast. One of the oldest restaurants in the city serving Basque food as per the original recipes back in that region of Spain....Small and sometimes overcrowded, it is still one of the bests!!
