El Méson de Caracas

Venezuelan in Caracas

A dash of formality marks this all-but-hidden place as an oasis of old-world calm amid the chaos of downtown. Tuxedo-sporting waiters and a classic rectangular wooden bar add to the sense of the surviving spirit of old Caracas. Seafood, fish and ceviche (marinated raw seafood) are the house specialties, but there's also a fast-food menu and plenty of meat on offer.
