Very nice place, the staff was really nice, food was tasty, and a really fair price, food usually are really expensive in chile, this isn't an exception, however the sandwiches are quite big and tasty. I spent 3 days in puerto varas and went there three times to watch the world cup games. One burger is about 4.200 pesos (US$... More

We went here for breakfast two days in a row since our hostel (Margouya 2) gave us a 50% discount for breakfast before 11 AM. Staff were so nice when we accidentally showed up after 11, as they still gave us the discount.

el barista is, for my taste, the best place of puerto varas..it actually did puerto varas for me. Fresh and tasty food, one of the best (close to italian) espresso in town, sublime cakes and the breakfast..oh awesomeness!! During the night it transforms in a trendy bar, in which you can sip a super nice local brew enjoying fine music!

Great place. Great music. Good food. Service not so good. They look stressed and in a hurry. The low point is that they where extremely la unfriendly with our kid.

Nice and very friendly staff. Moderate prices and a great burger. The barista burger is awesome. Also the local beer and the coffee are very good. Total recommendation.

We were looking for an affordable dinner in Puerto Varas at 5PM and, after scoping out 5 or 6 other restaurants nearby, ended up at El Barista. Being sensitive to cigarette smoke, we had had a somewhat unpleasant experience dining outdoors there previously, but it seemed to be the only economic option. My husband was perfectly satisfied with his burger.... More

I came here two lunches in a row to enjoy sitting outside in the sunshine and taking a chance on the menu el dia every day....a fun way to try new food. Good value.

The atmosphere here is good, so is the food. Service is not that great though, kind of slow and they get orders wrong sometimes. Also kind of overpriced. But hey, it's that kind of town...so you can't avoid that

This cafe seemed pretty popular so we returned to have a light lunch, the staff were friendly but the food was very average - huge portions and a bit short on flavor.

I ordered the hamburger on a pita. The order was enough for two people and included all kinds of vegetables and a fried egg, although the meat patty itself was thin. I couldn't eat it all. Served with a refreshing fruit drink, it makes a satisfying lunch although I prefer restaurants with regular, rather than super-size portions, so I probably... More
