HOW TO USE THE GUIDE
This Caracas Gastronomic Guide is much more than just gastronomic. It also includes a series of new options to provide the reader with a wide vision of all the best the city has to offer when it comes to fun.
DESCRIPTION: Entries have the name appearing first, then the points awarded in accordance with the criteria for selection. This is followed with a section dedicated to the address, telephone, web site, e-mail address, type of cuisine, days when closed, credit cards accepted, facilities for parking, price category, reservations, and any other pertinent information. If data about any of the aforementioned items does not appear, this means that the service is not offered. For example; if parking lot does not appear, it is because the restaurant does not have parking facilities.
AWARDING OF POINTS: The Editorial Committee of the guide has established a value system. The evaluated restaurants, cafes, and delicatessens, have been judged according to their quality, obviously, but also in virtue of other factors such as relation between quality and price, some specific points of interest about their cooking, values of authenticity or consistency, special details which make a difference, etc. You will find here not just “sacred” sites, but also those which have something of particular interest which makes them worth visiting.
We use this symbol to indicate places that, despite the rating given, stand out from other places in their category and are worthy of special recommendation: be it for service, price, or any other outstanding feature.
PRICE: The price factor is an element which acquires more importance every day, here and throughout the world. The most costly is not always necessarily the best. With this in mind, as with other pointers, we have also included this element in the information for each establishment.
DELIVERY SERVICES: We include a selection of some of the principal food delivery services as well as chefs who offer their service to individuals.
FAST FOOD: We include a selection of some of the principal fast food services and they’re address.
GASTRONOMIC INSTITUTES: We include a selection of the gastronomic intitutes in Caracas.
NIGHT CLUBS: We include a selection of the main discos, bars and dancing spots in the city together with their characteristics and the kind of fun offered.
CINEMAS, THEATERS, MUSEUMS, ETC...: We also include a listing with the name, address and telephone number of the main cinemas, theaters, museums, art galleries, cultural centers, concert halls, and places to visit in town. This will allow the reader to inform himself on the film, play or exhibition of the moment. Because this is an annual guide, it is impossible to list accurately the daily activities offered by each of these places.
THE NEW ONES: In order to make things easier for the reader to access information, we have created a directory where we included the new restaurants incorporated to this edition.
OBSERVATIONS: The information listed here was reconfirmed by our editing team in the last trimester of 2009. Any alteration occurred during or after the printing process is beyond our wishes. In the final pages you will find a section for special notes for each reader to write and keep his own up-to-date observations.
