Fodor's Review

An old standby at Punta Uva, Selvin's keeps limited, sometimes irregular, hours, especially in the off-season, so always call ahead and head out here if you're fortunate enough to be in town when it's open. The owner, known to everyone in town as "Blanca," cooks up a menu of rondón, rice and beans, lobster, shrimp, and chicken with sweet mole sauce.
