Barinas… two superb restaurants

La Fuente Restaurante in BarinasWe visited Barinas a small village  just outside Hondon recently and were very impressed. The first visit was to a superb fish restaurant, so for the fish lovers amongst you this is a must try, everything fresh and served with excellent service and superb taste. There was also  plenty of parking opposite. The name of this fish restaurant is FELIX. This restaurant was recommended  to us by the locals, if you don’t like fish, then this isn’t for you, as they serve nothing else but fish, fish, fish and more fish…

The next little gem is “La Fuente” from the outside its nothing to look at, with its bubble gum machines outside, but don’t let that put you off! We couldn’t believe what we got for 35 euros per head.

The menu was as follows :-

  • Wine and water
  • Roasted  almonds
  • Home made crisps
  • Fresh home made bread ali oli with tomato
  • Cheese cakes with tomato jam these were delicious
  • Mixed ham cheese and nuts
  • Large plate of squid and octypus
  • Main course. We chose lamb  served with garlic potatoes and vegetables
  • More wine and water then came
  • Large plate of mixed fresh fruit including orange melon apples pears grapes
  • Cakes with coffee
  • Liquor’s with biscuit

The service was second to none we will certainly  go back to this one… more info and pictures on the La Fuenté Blog
