It might seem a little weird that I'm about to recommend that you go to a Swiss restaurant in Venezuela, but one of the characteristics of multiculturalism in this country is that you can find restaurant "authentic" in many countries. In my small Swiss fondue you can have a top quality, plus crepes, and other specialties such as carpaccio of brie fondue dessert nutella or creme brulee, similar to crème brûlée.
Inside the national and international area of Las Veredas del Lago you can find amenities such as restaurants, entertainment, water park, gym, chariot races, a zoo, university, sports, overlooking Lake Maracaibo and the longest bridge in Latin America ...

Outside there are excellent views and a varied menu where you will find tequeños and even sushi .... It is a magical place to come visit and the service is really good. I highly recommend it ..
The Coromoto ice cream shop is in the Guinness Book of Records for being the store that has the most option of ice cream flavors in the world, around 1000, some of them as exotic as ginger and avocado, and some quite strange like octopus, squid , or mushrooms in wine.
Sushi on the beach (Venezuela). Aquarena is an inn in Gran Roque, which is also a restaurant, cocktail bar and even craft store. The best thing about it is that it's right on the beach and the restaurant has unusual specialties such as sushi. As for the cocktail bar, it's great to have a beer at sunset while watching the local fishermen return with their catches of the day.
El Hatillo is where you can enjoy this traditional Creole candy store that has endless varieties of sweets. The ones that stood out to me were the marshmallows, kisses, canned coconut, coconuts, the cassave naiboas stuffed with cheese and a separate point are custards and multiple cheeses and fruits, milk, pineapple, orange, guava, guava and coconut. Bejarana cake is made with ripe plantains, and the bienmesabe is a delicious coconut cream with frosting the flavor of sweet wine or brandy and cinnamon aroma. Come on, if you go to eat at El Hatillo and don't leave room for dessert you'll regret it forever.
The atmosphere is mystic and it has sacred decoration. Music with Gregorian chants that together with waiters dressed as Benedictine monks give a touch of mystery to the place. Very good international dishes. It has several rooms: one with a terrace with views of the Sierra Nevada, Garden, Bar and The Catacombs. Inside the room is the Abadia Tours Travel Agency who offer tours to travel Destinations throughout Venezuela.
Venezuelans consider it a tradition to go to the beach to enjoy some empanadas as either breakfast or for a snack. They are made with corn meal and fillings ranging from the traditional cheese or stuffed shark to imaginative and forceful as the "back to life" which is kind of seafood salad or the "domino" with black beans and cheese. I wanted to try them all, so I ate several, and my favorite was the shrimp. Delia is a very friendly lady who from 6am started making the pies, that's why I always have to wait a little, but the wait is fun as it is shared with other diners and we get to watch Delia do her work in the kitchen . Look for it in front of the Park Office.
Chocolates La Mucuy was born as a small craft project Tabay in a house, half an hour from Merida, but their chocolates have become so popular that they have opened stores in several commercial centers in Merida, specifically in Plaza Mayor and the DC The Tapias . Both the quality and the choice are good, plus they make incredible gift presentations. This place does justice to the best cacao in the world, that of Venezuela.
Blue Moon is a chocolate shop that features items that are 100% handmade. It is run by its owner, a leading Danish woman who has been living in Venezuela for several years and it says that the cocoa in this country is the best in the world. The place is small but cozy, and the main attraction is on counter. Here you will find more 25 different types of chocolates, candies and truffles and exotic combinations such as lavender and honey, hot pepper with lemon, wasabi with black sesame and curry with coconut.
Das Pastelhaus is a two-story pizzeria with a pretty terrace, and most importantly, a wood-fired oven that has pizzas coming out of it crisp and in creative combinations also, such as cream pizzas. The desserts are a credit to its original name in German, La Patisserie, and we highly recommend the cheesecake and chocolate Montego, own specialty.
This is a famous French pastry shop in eastern Caracas. It is famous is because they are the creators of an exquisite cake called Fressier, consisting of two thin layers of sponge cake filled with fresh strawberries and cream. There is also a version that is similar but with peach: Melocotonier. You can order them individually or for several people.
The Bucare is a beautiful tree with orange flowers, common in Venezuelan. This restaurant has both the name and the color of the tree: Yellow, green, orange and beautiful flower arrangements are presented in its décor, designed by architect Totón Sanchez. The partners (four brothers) make sure to take care of every detail and in every dish or drink that the customer consumes. The menu has different things from pizzas to traditional dishes such as ceviche served over mashed sweet potato chips crisps. Desserts are a delight and will stay in your memory for long time. They also have a cocktail menu and wine list.
Its owner, Evio di Marzo, is a musician and often plays on the weekends at the restaurant. It is a small Italian restaurant situated in Los Palos Grandes, the "Little Manhattan" in Caracas, which is full of restauratnes, bars and clubs. It has a nice terrace on a little noisy street because it is blind. I recommend the pizza with goat cheese and sun-dried tomatoes. I also recommend the fried empanadas.
Suruape is a very quiet place, surrounded by many and varied vegetation. It also has a small pond fed by spring water and the visitor who feels like it can take a dip surrounded by mountains and nature. There are comfortable furniture and hammocks to sit on and enjoy the tranquility, read a book, talk or have a cup of coffee. It is simply amazing that this place is situated just 30 minutes from Caracas! One can take walks in this tropical forest, with huge trees and birdsong! The ancient site Teques Indians can also be visited. One of the most recommended food is the delicious beef, sausage and blood sausage, grilled Uruguayan style, with chicken, salads, guasacacas, sauces and different creams for dessert and coffee. There are also cabins available for up to eight people with hot water, a refrigerator and coffee maker as well as an excellent view of the mountain to the Valles del Tuy. A shuttle service is also on offer.
The golfeado is a typical Venezuelan sweet that is a kind of bread sweetened with brown sugar (which is juiced sugar cane passed through cooking) and it has a slice of cheese and salty Fressco. It's a perfect combination all together and it is best to eat it while warm and freshly made. Don Goyo is a franchise that is dedicated exclusively to this type of sweet and services it with various types of cheese, but always hot and fluffy. You can find it in several commercial centers in Caracas and the city's international airport.
During our stay in Merida, I decided to enter the commercial center of Av de Portugal that was near our hotel. We opted for the restaurant "Pacomeralgo" because they accepted checks and for the stunning decoration. We found it very original and the menu was not limited to Italian food as we had previously thought it would be. There was homemade pizzas, barbecue pizza, the most popular were the Calzzone (from what I regret not having ordered). The portions are massive and very tasty, just looking at the desserts you can see what they look like. Again. The next day we returned to dinner, I ordered a burger, a change from last night's pizza, it was large and succulent, with all the trimmings. Customer treatment was very friendly they even switched on the TV so we could watch the game.
