La cita has been part of the Caracas culinary landscape for decades. It is a traditional Spanish restaurant with some of the best and abundant dishes. Paella, seafood, lamb, you name it they have it. Great atmosphere and prices. I don´t like where it is located though. It is better to go at lunchtime than to dinner for safety issues... More

Excellent quality of food,great variety and friendly service.It has a feeling of a typical spanish place and a good relation quality/price.Even though it is located in the heart of the "Candelaria"zone, it offers parking facilities within walking distance

The food is as delicious as ever! Attention super spectacular! You can bring your own spirits with a charge, you can choose the frustration menu if you are really hungry or choose individually which for me worked better! We had the best time played our own music 🎶 had a memorable day and frankly eat delicious! Highly recommended!

La Cita is in the middle of La Candelaria, a zone in Caracas full of Spanish immigrants and near the beautiful La Candelaria Church. This zone is full of Spanish tascas (both Vasque and Galician food). La Cita is one of the best in the area. Anything is good here, "tortilla española", "chistorras", fresh fish like "mero en salsa verde"... More

For years, this has undoubtedly be one of my favorites places in the city. The atmosphere is so "Madridlish" with the best Spanish food in Caracas, very friendly visitors, great attention and very good benefit-cost equation (huge dishes at very good prices). During Christmas, one can even enjoy typical Spanish music from the season, with traditional music from the neighborhood... More

This place is probably one of the best places to eat seafood prepares in the Spanish cuisine way. I recommend "pulpo a la gallega" (octopus) and "arroz a la marinera" rice with seafood. The best way to go is either with taxi or with public transport because parking in that area is terrible. Metro station la hoyada. The best is... More
