Update: This restaurant has closed.

Many don’t get the opportunity to visit Venezuela, nor do they get to taste the flavors of the regional cuisine. Now you can get a great representation of the Venezuelan cuisine in Playa Del Carmen at the El Punto Venezuelan Corner. 

El Punto Restaurant arises from the desire to offer 100% Venezuelan gastronomy in Mexico. They want the true seasoning to be represented in the dishes they prepare. To achieve this, they use products imported from Venezuela and also to merge with Mexican gastronomy, paying respect to the country that is welcoming them.

Chef Cristian Cupul works hand in hand with managers to achieve the Venezuelan flavor. Every dish is made to order so a fresh taste can be offered to each guest. Each morning, very early, the team arrives to start preparing ingredients for the day.
