Caracas Restaurants

Fodor's Review

Lush tropical vegetation filled with parrots, tree frogs, and turtles has been part of the experience at this Caracas landmark since it opened in 1950. It's truly memorable just to arrive here: the mostly open-air restaurant is perched just below the Ávila, and the moment you walk through the front gate you see cages of colorful birds and waitors scurrying about carrying trays laden with cuts of meat. There's definitely a theme-park feeling here, but it's fun just the

same, espeically on a sunny, breezy afternoon. On the menu you will find well-prepared (if not life-changing) grilled steaks and seafood. The mango flambé à la mode is a delightful way to end your meal.

Kitschy, yes, but nice

I agree with some of the comments on the slightly kitschy ambience - however - it's great to sit on the open (yet covered) terraces... The food was ok - nothing too special (had better croquetas elsewhere, and the lomo was a nice thick cut but not matured enough), wine list is small, though slightly at the high end for the city. Overall - a nice place to relax
