“Always excelent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2012

I have been going to this restaurant since I was a kid and the food is always great. I came back after a year abroad and it remains the same. It is expensive but worth it.

“Pure Deliciousness”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2012

First trip back to this restaurant after something like 20 years. It's a small place with no more than 20 seats, so be prepared to share a table with strangers. If you can get one, that is.
Doña Blanca and her children have been cooking up tasty food for more than four decades in this unassuming place in La Candelaria. It is an institution, and has hosted every VIP imaginable, including all Venezuelan presidents. The joke is that John Paul II couldn't get a reservation.
We were lucky that we went during the week, and managed to get a place. We ate squid, merluza and grouper (shared everything, it was all good).
It was good twenty years ago, also. Hopefully I wont wait that long to go again.
Oh, it's kind of expensive. But worth it.
