Just add the Eiffel Tower and you can have the whole of France inside this charming little place! Operating since the 1960s, regarded as a pioneer in French cuisine in all of Caracas, Aventino prides itself with traditionalism when it comes to serving authentic food with all the hospitality of a Frenchman. The décor and lighting is reminiscent of many a diner in Paris. The special on the menu: pressed duck, the Caneton a la presse – spice, seasoning, and flavor, with an added touch of magic, all make this dish a must-have during any visit to Caracas.
Good for formal dinners with family and friends. Reservations are strictly advised.
