There are plenty of reputable steakhouses in Caracas, but this is my favorite -- as much for the casual vibe as for the fine meats and side dishes. There's an extensive selection of meat dishes, and nearly as many fish and chicken choices. The classic pabellón criollo and asado negro are both excellent. If you want something less traditional, try the chateaubriand or medallions of sirloin in a port sauce. A wide range of traditional Venezuelan appetizers and sides are available as well. Four rooms of differing contain indigenous craftworks and plenty of ferns -- helecho is Spanish for fern -- which liven up the decor.
