“Excellent traditional basque restaurant.”
Reviewed 5 October 2013 via mobile

The magnificent traditional dishes we tasted were based on private recipes handed down from the owners' grandmother , and expertly elaborated only with fresh premium ingredients. It is like eating at the home of a talented basque cook. The decor is simple and of a bygone era, but very adequate. This tiny restaurant, currently under the management of the grandchildren of the founder, continues to be one of the best tables in Caracas.

“Best in town”
Reviewed 18 October 2012

Best basque food in Caracas, best any food in Caracas, this little place is like eating in a little sea side home in Spain. The different basque dishes any of then will leave you breathless,? The service is basically the owner sitting along and bringing you stuff as her son cooks back at the kitchen. Have no doubts this is the best meal experience in town. Not for family and very little place, reservations needed. Only one minus location, once a piece of Spain La Candelaria has become a scary place I only would recommend to go for lunch with a driver that should drop and picked you up at the restaurant door. This adventurous sort of outing just adds to the mystery and magical feeling of going for a jewel in the jungle. Remember no parking and no taxis just hire a driver to take you at specific hours. Expensive but worth it.

Reviewed 18 July 2012

I have been going to this restaurant since I was a kid and the food is always great. I came back after a year abroad and it remains the same. It is expensive but worth it.
