Fodor's Review

In the very heart of Pampatar lies this inviting Mediterranean trattoria. International clientele mix with locals for romantic dinners or drinks at the well-stocked bar (try a mojito or a frozen Casa Caranta cocktail). The specialties of the house include homemade fettucini with a rotating menu of sauces, and fresh fish such as dorado (mahimahi) in a variety of preparations—try it drizzled in red curry sauce or simmering in a fragrant broth. This old colonial house also serves as an art gallery: local artwork and charming antiques are tastefully exhibited throughout. Strong coffee and a slice of tres leches cake are the way to end your feast.
