You really can't miss this place - it's bright yellow and located on a busy bend in the road opposite the botanical garden.
It's a good place for a lunchtime snack such as an arepa (stuffed corn pancake). There is a separate gated seating area which is reserved for those who are eating.
Favorite Dish: We tried arepas with spicy chicken and ham and cheese fillings. Good, but messy to eat!
Formerly known as "Tasca La Playa". They have good and inexpensive fish, pasta and parilla. Or you can just have a few beers at the bar where you can watch music videos. Very friendly staff and portugese owner. Open 3 pm to 9 or 10 pm.
In the corner opposite Posada Don Carlos there is a cheap restaurant run by two nice women. As you go inside you will notice the proper roof is missing but there is canvas put up. There is a menu outside and a few dishes to chose from. I had coca-cola and a soup, a big soup with different root vegetables and some meet, which was a good meal. Then I returned to the posada opposite just before it got dark.
The glass of coca-cola was 2000 Bs and the soup was 5000 Bs.
Restaurant Mirador Angustora is situated by the River Orinoco promenade, a good location and nice place to sit in after walking around for a day. It is a round open building. I came here to have lunch and was glad that it was not expensive and the fish I had was tasting good. For fish, rice, salad, juice and tip I paid 15 000 Bs (June 2007).
You can also come here only to drink a beer or a coffee. They played music quite loud, but not too loud.
