restaurant diamante: Tapas restaurant in Hotel Diamante
I was so tired that I hadn't the enery to go out to eat, so I tried the restourant, little, next my room at the first floor of my hotel.
The meat parillada was so good, the dishes was big and the salade was fresh and gorgeouse!
We took 1 parillada to share, 1 salade, 1 queso fundido, bread and 4 bears: we was full and the price only 36.000 bolivares.
Casa Valencia: Long Standing Tradition in Valencia
Casa Valencia is one of the finest restaurants in town, and the ambience of parrots and colonial style architecture is excellent. The food is quite varied, with seafood, red meat, poultry, and pasta on the menu, along with the traditional yucca, tostones, platanos, and other authentic Venezuelan food. Venezuelans dress up more than other countries in general, so a meal eaten here shouldn't be done in overly casual clothes, but I'm not aware of any dress code. It's a great place to bring the family because the place has room for long tables. In the times we have visited the family, no visit was complete without a big family meal here. In the photos shown, the white wine were from bottles that I brought to Venezuela, but I do recall a modest wine list of Spanish wines available. There's also a full bar for mixed drinks, of course, as there is in virtually any fine restaurant in Venezuela. Find a table near the parrot cages to entertain the kids. Waiting service is excellent.

Bambu: Don't sleep on the Seafood Chowder Bowl
Favorite Dish: One of the popular dishes is a soup, served in a bowl of bread, that's filled with seafood and potato. It's kind of like clam chowder, but the Venezuelan version of it.
Here is a picture of Dave enjoying a hearty bowl of chowder. We spent a lot of time at Bambu, and I recommend that you do as well. If you're in Valencia, it's a must go.
