Great seafood!

We just ate at this restaurant tonight. We had seen the great reviews on TA and decided to try it out while in Santiago. This place had the most diners than any of the other restaurants in the area which should tell you something. My husband had the plancha marinera which has an assortment of... read more

Visited in a big party (table of 14) and the service and food was excellent. Ceviche tasters are recommended as are the variety of potatoes. I've visited la Mar in Sao Paulo too and this one is superior in terms of location and layout as well as the food. There were some sushi options when we went (in addition to... More

This is an expensive place and should be one of the top sea food restaurants in Santiago but it is not. Perhaps it is a has been or perhaps we were just unlucky. Waiters were slow and had to be reminded to bring drinks and the food was not enjoyable. The positive highlight was the pisco sour.

Went for lunch with business associate; sat outside on the terrace. Was a bit difficult to find a parking spot, but worth the effort. Wonderful "can do" service. The Ceviche was fresh (I had sea bass) & perfect in all aspects. Main course: Swordfish grilled & tasted like caught that day. A really pleasant, "foodie" experience. Great dessert--sort a fried...

We had dinner. The place was packed when we arrived but we managed to get the last table. The Colombian hostess was very friendly but the good service ended there. It took 30 minutes for us to be served a bottle of wine which the waiters managed to bring the wrong bottle 2 times. On the 3rd we just drank... More

I've been there last week for the first time and found it delicious, there's a lot of great options to choose from. Although prices are not cheap at all, I think that it's worth the price. Waiter's knowledge about the menu is great, so they can help you decide on what you'll not regret. You'd better call for a reservation,... More

The fourth time at La Mar and I keep going back for its ceviche. Better to sit outside if you can get a table as the music trends to be rather loud inside, especially at the tables close to the bar.

On a recent visit to Santiago we stumbled upon La Mar and glad we did! While La Mar is known for ceviche, we had an absolutely wonderful array of salads, salmon maki with a twist, (acebichado)and fresh fish. Ever dish was fabulous. Honestly one of the best restaurants in Vitacura. Highly recommended, wonderful atmosphere, attentive staff.
