This may not be the best restaurant for steaks in Caracas. However, it is very traditional, the service is good and you will eat good steaks for a very acceptable price. The location is also great.

Service is always very good here. The waiters are long lasting employees, very dedicated to their business. The bar is very nice and on Thursdays there is a great ambiance for after hour drinks. Totally recommended for business meetings and to invite international invites that stay at the renaissance hotel right beside this nice steakhouse.

So I stayed a week in Caracas and I get to check all the restaurants around the hotel. No doubts this is the best. Big and fresh meat cut served in a flawless way. Best steak in a long time.

Excellent restaurant. Sensible prices. Liked it so much ate there for 6 of my last 7 nights in Caracas. Superb steaks. Good selection of wines - in all price ranges. Staff very friendly. Accept credit & debit cards issued outside Venezuela (not everywhere does).

Lunch for six persons last Sunday. The maitre d persuaded us to change our order - perhaps that is where the mistake was made. The service left a lot to be desired, admittedly it was early and they were probably warming up !!! The meat was tasteless and not well prepared at the table. This used to be my second... More

I went here in July 2014 on a romantic date and I have to say, it was one of my best restaurant experiences ever. The food was great. It was not high-cuisine or very experimental. But all the great classics you would expect at a great traditional steakhouse Traditional is the keyword. La Estancia is very traditional - which I... More

The food is quite good, traditional. Depending on the exchange rate you received the value for me can be extraordinary. The service is a bit slow and distracted but that seems to be an issue in Venezuela generally and not specific to this restaurant. If you go you will eat well. It won't be memorable but neither will you be... More
