We had two meals here during our stay in los roques and both of them were good. You get plenty of food and it is well prepared. At both times the fish was delicious, cooked to perfection, not dry at all and we were served a good choice of different vegetables and pasta/risotto. We appreciated having dinner with good selection/variety... More

The place is a hippie style house with walls covered with paints, pictures and objects from around the world. The tables are mostly located outside, very near the sand and the beach. The food is just exquisite with combinations that will surprise your palate! The service is very good and the staff is very friendly. Eating here is a must... More

We just walked away from the packaged tour dinner that we had with Aerotuy, really not attractive, and found this place very near...we sat at table in the beach, candle light, excellent food and very nice people serving.

We were advised by the owner of our Posada that it was a little bit expensive (450 bolivares without drinks). I think it is worth it, fresh ingredients, nice music, lovely terrace, I just loved this place !!! A booking is needed since the chef cooks for the exact number of people.

This place is so nice you want to stay longer than food. Staff is really nice, the highest mark of the place. Ambience is amazing, windy because it is in front of the sea, so is not going to be hot. Soft music, candles, low light, clean, you can't go wrong. Food is not anything extraordinary, but it extremely fresh... More

They also have 2 rooms and we stayed in one for 5 days. We took the all-in ( breakfast, lunch, dinner ) package and it was really worth it. The owner, Nelly, is also cooking - and she is an excellent cook. There is no menu to choose, you get the menu of the day. Everything is prepared very nicely... More
