I went there expecting amazing and it was just ok. Not worth the price. It's about us$50 per person. There are much better places for that. I had the salmon with risotto...the salmon was ok but the risotto was un-eatable.

Fantastic food, great service in a beautiful part of Santiago. The Ceviche was a delicious way to start along with a pisco bloody mary on a Sunday. All the food on the neiboring tables kept us asking our waiter what else we could order and it was a great culinary experience. It's also good people watching on a Sunday.

The ambient is ok, but could be more comfortable. The waiter has committed some small mistakes with the orders. We were expecting a bit more from this restaurant.

I went to this restaurant this month (june 2015), and I ordered sea food, it was just delicious. A bit pricey but it is worthy. The beer is also very good (Cuzqueña).

Great ceviche and cool ambiance. A little overpriced, but on par with nice DC or NY restaurants. A nice night out.

Hot dish is WAY TOO salty. Sushi is light and tasteless. However, seafood is fresh and ingredient is excellent. Not worth five stars.

I've been several times to La Mar, one of my favourite restaurants in Santiago. The food is amazing, I strongly recommend the seafood anticuchero platter and some of the sushi they have in their menu. The place is also fantastic, colorful and trendy (I particularly love the terrace, either the one in the front of the restaurant or the one... More

Modern decorated restaurant. The owner is a very well known peruvian chef. Food and wines are very good and service is excellent. It´s a little expensive but the experience worths it. A little noisy, always crowded, reservation is suggested. Located in a very nice neighbourhood.

Food was awesome, try ceviches, causas and Makis for start. This restaurant has too many windows so in general quite chilly in winter, so bring your coat.
