Food was delicious. They take a time to prepare and serve you but it is because I guess they prepare everything with fresh ingredients and at that time. Price was also not expensive at all compared with what you eat.

Great place and affordable, especially for tourists. Little expensive for locals. But then again, this is maybe not a place you go to every day if your budget doesnt allow it.

We have had many of the best meals of our lives at Gaia's Place! Best appetizer ever is the Three Fish Carpacio. I need some now!

Even in the crisis Venezuela is facing nowadays, this place offers exquisite dishes. We followed tripadvisor's recommentarions and made a reservation to happily discover this place. Try the Insalata Gaia, a wonderful mix of lettuce, parmigiano, champignons, carrots and figs! You must have the panna cotta con nutella as a dessert! Highly recommended!

Not flavor at all and homemade pasta without the right texture Very sad experience (Maybe is the country situation and they do not find quality ingredients)
