Where to Eat in La Colonia Tovar: The Best Restaurants and Bars

December 11, 2017 Milan Banda

Colonia Tovar (English: Tovar Colony) is a town of Venezuela, capital of the municipality Tovar in Aragua state. Founded in 1843 by a group of immigrants from the then independent state of the Grand Duchy of Baden (later incorporated into Germany), it is characterized by the maintenance of the cultural imprint of their origin, so it is called "the Germany of the Caribbean". The economy depends primarily on agriculture and tourism; and the town is located 42 km (26 mi) from Caracas. The Colonia is known for its temperate crops (peaches, strawberries, beets, cauliflower, carrots, cabbage, chard, broccoli, lettuce, onions and potatoes) and their derivatives. Since 1990 it has shown a high rate of population growth, rising from 3,373 to 21,000 inhabitants in 2016.

Great menu and service. Went this month and had a good time there. Prices are low for US travelers due to currency exchange but it is in no way a cheap restaurant. Ordered chicken breaded with coconut batter with a mango sauce. Delicious choice. Desserts are all homemade. Tiramisu was my choice and I was not dissappointed. I recommend this place if you are looking for a classy outfit in Maracay.

This Spanish restaurant still have the best fideua (Spanish style seafood pasta) in town, but the surroundings of the restaurant has deteriorated the past years. Now, there are lots of flies inside and the cleanliness of the restaurant has gone a little below expectation of a luxury dining place.

We booked for a special family lunch, two families together, 8 people total. We had different entries, main courses and desserts. Everybody was delighted at every course. Despite no sommelier and waiters not knowing their wines, they had a great selection of wines perfectly stored. I usually have problems with wines in Venezuela, where you must be careful not to spoil it with the climate. Not in Atico.

Jaque Mate Cantina - Restaurante

Reviewed By Johnnie_bizot - Maracay, Venezuela

A very nice place with modern decoration and interesting menu. Cons: Sebiche and Thai food are out of their reach, so they shouldn't be on the menu. Pros: Main courses, particularly fish are excellent, at the very best level. Very good pasta and beef. Their "Souffle de Chocolate" alone is worth the visit. All areas (Bar, restaurant and outdoor seating) are nice and comfortable. I've been there twice this week, but didn't have the chance to try their sushi. They get comedians on wednesdays. We enjoyed Carlos Donoso last night. Nice!

Been there several times. Very good seafood, specially their paella and seafood rice. Wine selection is OK. Good decoration. Decent desserts. Live music, but don't allow dancing, even when they're playing salsa! Good for family, business and group meals.

Nice assortments of chicken, grill and barbecue. Refreshing sangria and fruit juices by the glass or the pitcher. Great for family or big groups informally gathering. The only con would be the lack of air conditioning in a hot city. Take away available.

Reviewed By fcgg - Fort Lauderdale, Florida

4D is one of the best places to eat ice cream in the world. I have been to at least 10 different stores around Venezuela, and this one in Las Delicias (Maracay) is no exception.
I have come to this store at least 4 times in the past 3 months.
Service was kind. The place is just ok. The gelatti are just amazing.
Try any flavor and you will be amazed.

Madera fina

Reviewed By LaBokaina

This restaurant is just 100 meters away from La Bokaina and the chef Carlos is also the chef of La Bokaina. His running this restaurant during evenings and it is great. Carlos' from Equador and he is often mixing Caribbean style food with a Equadorian flavors. You have to try his ceviche which is truly world class.
He also makes great drinks. His Pina Coladas is to die for.
The prices are also quite low considering the quality of the food (especially if you get a exchange rate on the black market).
Highly recommended!

Reviewed By Johnnie_bizot - Maracay, Venezuela

We had some classic shrimp cocktail and carpaccio for entries. Then my wife ordered the lobster and I had the langoustines (prawns) al cognac. These were prepared in front of us, nice flambé show for the prawns. A Chardonnay "Casillero del Diablo", Central Valley 2007 was just a perfect match. The only room we saw to improve was on the dessert area. As with many restaurants in Venezuela, they just bring you a Cart with cakes and pies for you to choose from, not bad, but definitely a poor match for such a nice dinner.
