Incredible food

We stumbled across this restaurant that was close to our hotel, while we were out looking for a place to have lunch at the weekend. What an amazing surprise! The food was extremely tasty and I had the best ceviche I've ever tasted. The service was also very efficient.

We had some confusion about the reservation -- they claim the Ritz concierge never called but Ritz had a confirmation. They finally seated us ... for one of our best meals ever. The menu is Peruvian -- one from famed chef Gaston Acurio. Ceviche was delightful but the sampler of cousas was top notch.

Trendy fish restaurant in one of the best roads in Santiago. Beautifully designed decor, with a noisyish chatty background from the we'll heeled clientele. Full range of exceptional Peruvian fish dishes, superb presentation and colourful plates of cervice through she'll fish and rice dishes and regular fish. Good cocktails ranges of pisco, and a great wine list. This is a... More

We had heard very good reviews of this place and were not disappointed. Great food choices for all tastes, friendly staff, fast service. The only problem is that the English menu was outdated. Fully booked on a Thursday night, need to reserve well in advance if with a large group.

It is good place and one of the best in Santiago. Very kind and freiendly. 4 type of Cheviche is good. But not every cheviche is best. Seabass is really good.

Very good service and the food has an excellent quality and presentation.. we combine with a very good chilean Carmenere (the classic... More

Some of the finest ceviches ever! Everything so fresh. The octopus on mashed potatoes was devine, tender and smokey. Nice wine list and good pisco sours, of course it is a Peruvian restaurant.

I have been living in Santiago for 11 months. La Mar is so good I cannot stop going there, even if I love to try different restaurants. Makis are great (the one fried in panko, in particular); nikkei tiradito, ceviches in general, pisco sauer... All my friends love it. don't miss it in SCL!

located in swanky Vitacura , this restaurant offers superb Peruvian food from delicate ceviches to spicier ones. The cooked octopus is tender, fresh and cooked to perfections. As a main course, we shared various tiraditos ranging from succulent fish to asados to shrimp. All were delicious and light. The chocolate volcano , served with ice cream, was crisp on the... More
