This is catalogue the best restaurant in Venezuela for 2016, and it is indeed. Great cuisine, good service and outsantding food presentation. It is a little expensive but worth every cent.

Yesterday I was invited to this excellent restaurant in Caracas, by old venezuelans friends of mine. I was very tired, but I really enjoyed the food and the conversation with my friends. I had a Carite ( fish of the family of the sword fish) in a bed of fine pasta. We enjoyed wines they had brought.

I have to say, that this is quite an experience. Is about tasting and enjoying not only the wonderful combination of flavors, but also the presentation of every dish. I would recommend ordering the one that offers 8 different dishes. Also, very nice atmosphere, it was very quiet, you could talk and hear your partner. You have to tried it... More

Great place, very good food in a contemporary ambiance, the service is right without being all over you and last but not least the view of the mountains of southeast Caracas is astonishing.

If you plan to visit Caracas, you must visit Alto Restaurant, Venezuelan food to a whole different level. Both the service and the attention to details is far above five stars.

Alto is an excellent restaurant where you can try the very imaginative cuisine that exists in Venezuela, in spite of the crisis. The decor, by James Beard awrd winning Alejandro Barrios is perfect for the tropics. The whole restaurant is built around a magnificent old tree. . The only place I did not like is a private room for corporate... More

Had a great dinner, the food was excellent. Enjoyed very much this Venezuelan food with a twist. Particularly good were the "Lomo de res seco con helado de apio" and all the desserts (Tierra de cacao, quesillo, medanos). On top of that, the service is impeccable. Granted, for local standards, it's pricey but still quite an exprience
