A popular and well concurred steakhouse which has been somewhat inconsistent in service, yet the food has been fairly even throughout the years. The place is quite enclosed for a steakhouse with tables set too close to each other; it is always very noisy and after awhile the noice crescendo becomes annoying to the point that you have a hard...

I have been eating the best pollo de res. Tenderloin. And the kojac salad is a classic. The wooden plates are a classic. The wine cellar is so nice and... More

This place has astounding meat. The kojac salad is more than superb. The fish is fresh always and the best sweet plantains are made here with cheese on top. Great wine cellar and amazing and utmost best service ever.

A classic in Caracas. It's in a prime location close to offices and hotels, getting there should not be a problem, any cab driver nows the place. Portions are big! And there are several bbq distributed across the restaurant (never seen this before) which makes it very cool. If you ask for fries o patacones (fired green plantain) be prepared,... More

I have been eating in this steak house for more than 30 years! It is still the same, tables,decor, and menu! Prices have changed with such a high inflation that the country is facing! Service is fair! The senior waiters do not support the young ones well! I was surprised to listen a senior waiter criticized a young one by... More

This place has been operating for a very long time now. Service is amazing. The different steak cuts are really done to perfection. The classic kojac salad is a must and the pollo de res is also a must. They serve great provoletta cheese to start with and chorizo with the best morcilla possible. The dessert cart is fabulous can't... More

El Aranjuez is the type of place when you know when you walk in, but don't know when you are coming out. After you sit down and they start serving you the least thing you want to do is leave. The steaks are delicious, as well as authentic Spanish food.

This place as told by fellow reviewers is a classic in Caracas for Steak... They are pretty consistent and service is also quite nice. With all the troubble that the country is going through, they still have lots of choices. The t bone and the churrasco especial are very good... As always, I order rare Pitsburgh style (rojo arrebatado)... They... More
