La Mar has a really classy atmosphere, there is a lot of light coming in through the glass panes of the terrace. They were quite nice to accept us even if we did arrive only 30 min before the kitchen closed for the afternoon break. We took a ceviche mix which was superb, allthough a bit spicy for my preference,... More

If you are visiting Santiago, then you must have a meal here. Absolutely fabulous. 1. Varied menu with divine fresh fish menu selections. 2. The most tantalising and varied selection of crevich I have ever seen available on a menu. 3. Friendly, welcoming and happy waiters. 4. Great selection of wines available. 5. Strong pisco sours readily available. 6. Courteous... More

This was the 2nd place we had dinner in Santiago de Chile and it was truly the best meal of the trip. They have a very creative approach to their seafood with light and beautiful dishes. We were starting laugh though and wonder if we eat actual Chilean food as between La Mar and Astrid y Gaston we had eaten... More

A Peruvian chain (owned by Gaston Acurio) it does the best seafood in Santiago. Pricey, but fabulous. Ceviches (at night) plus other fresh fish / mariscos are available. Great Pisco Sours, with or without sugar (you can ask for artificial sweetener and they taste the same or better). Thoroughly recommended.

I have been to La Mar three times now: once for lunch and twice for dinner, always with business associates. La Mar has a great atmosphere any time of day, any time of year. The Peruvian-style food is varied, well-prepared and nicely served. The staff is friendly and attentive. They have menus in English if you desire. Pisco sours are... More

Excellent Seafood restaurants usually come with very elegant decoration – heavy white tablecloths, tall chairs, old waiters tied airless with a black papillon and etc… This Peruvian restaurant has a modern Spartan colored decoration, with young waiters with tattoos on their bare arms, who serve you the best fresh Ceviche I ever had. Just take a look at the pictures,... More

This is the perfect place to take advantage of tue excellent fresh seafood of chile with the magnificent seasoning of Peru. Both the tiraditos and ceviches are amazing. And of course ask for your leche de tigre, however the risotto with this oriental italian flare with the amazing seafood is a must in Chile, al, of this at a high... More

The staff was friendly, positive and helpful. We showed up, just a group of two but had no reservation - they fit us in at a nice little table up stairs. The restaurant is bigger than you think and has a nice variety of seafood. Pisco Sours, in short glasses are a good way to kick off any dinner in... More
