Vesuvio Malecón

 

Vesuvio Malecón (Av. George Washington No. 521) – The Malecón, which constantly reminds visitors of the country’s presence in the Caribbean, compels at least some to choose seafood upon arrival in the capital.  An ideal seafood restaurant is the Vesuvio Malecón (Av. George Washington No. 521), which was launched in 1954 by the Italian immigrant family the Bonarellis.  The Mediterranean-style Caribbean lobster (boiled lobster medallions, served with fresh tomatoes, white onion, olive oil, basil and rugola) is a sure hit among diners.  Because this restaurant’s clientele is the local elite and well-heeled foreigners, there is a dress code (jackets for men, fine dresses for women).
