After so many years I finally visited Margarita Island and tried, twice, this amazing traditional restaurant. The food is simply extraordinary, with great combinations and variations of traditional Venezuelan dishes, such as "asado negro" and "bollo navideño". There are so many nice things to say about this restaurant that is hard to know where to start, from the beautiful historic... More

Had the chance to visit the restaurant last August while visiting my family in Margarita Island. To go to La Casa de Esther is not just going a restaurant, but it’s also a whole experience. Imagine entering a typical colonial family house from the 16th centuries, decorated with a whole amount of pieces of antiquity, mostly reflecting the customs, traditions... More

I went there this afternoon with my wife and daughter. We had a very good time. The food is delicious.The place is very nice, the music is very good. The owner, Esther explains the dishes herself and her daughter helps her with the drinks, the food and the music. You will not be disappointed.

We (two families) had lunch in this fabulous place. The house is a special place on it's own, like a museum. It's beautiful. The food was delicious. After living in Venezuela for four years, I've been in just a few places with such a different and excellent cuisine.

The food was great and the service was very good too. Be prepared to be surprised. Suitable for foodies. Not suitable for picky eaters as the options are limited.

Wow... The food and the service was the best I have experience in the island. Try the Ajidulces Rellenos con Chorizo Carupanero! Thank you Esther for a great experience!

We went there on May 1st and had an amazing time. We started with some tropical Shandy and great music. The owner, Esther, is the one taking orders while her daughter brings the drinks and puts the music. The environment is typical of the area, with a "magical realism" hint. The house is a double cultural heritage: first because of... More

Some friends took me there during a recent visit to Margarita and I was expecting the usual fried fish and arepas type of experience so I was surprised by this unusual exposure to culinary excellence in the middle of nowhere. The place is located in an old house in a small town called Pedro Gonzales in Margarita Island in the... More
