El tinajero de los Helechos is a Grill restaurant, that also offers many other spanish type food. They also serve fish. Great menu selections both of appetizers as entrees. Good deserts also. Full bar and good wine selection. The best Sangria made fresh at your table.

Here you can find the best superior meat cuts you can get anywhere in the world, mated to the local and unique appetizers and sidedishes to accompany the main course. Great, profesional service.

A great place to eat meat in Caracas. Not only beef but also lamb is very popular. With spanish influences - this place has very good service in general. Great for families too.
