I don't often review restaurants for Trip Advisor but this one warranted something. Of all the meals we had in Santiago, this was literally the worst. The food was horrible, the dinner rolls they give you were like frozen on the inside and warm on the outside, I guess they just pulled them out of the freezer and nuked them?... More

The restaurant is old and the bathrooms are very scary, but the service and food are wonderful. This is another one of our "must do restaurants" every time we come to Chile.
