Great Peruvian food in Santiago

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.

This place is right up the street from my hotel as I am in Chile now. Octopus YES, mixed ceviche YES. Sushi - ok. The quality of the food is awesome. The service was great. Ambience excellent. It is on the pricey side but if you're looking for a seafood dining experience then I would highly recommend it. I would... More

We sat downstairs and it was a bit loud. The food made up for it by being delicious and fresh. Each of the sauces were so good it was tempting to lick the plate. We loved the raw salmon in tamarind sauce.

Our last night in Santiago and we were craving seafood. This restaurant was recommended by our hotel and we had them make our reservation for 8pm which is when the restaurant opens. We were glad we had made reservations as the place filled up quickly. At first the waiter brought us the menu in Spanish, then he realized we were... More

We were glad we had reserved a table upstairs as the lower age group downstairs were making such a noise. As a group of 8 we shared a number of dishes which had been preordered. The ceviches were great, but other than the spicy one there was not that much difference. The centolla was prettily arranged on a tower of... More

We were seven adults for dinner on a Thursday evening. The place was full. Looks like people come here to see and be seen and the food and prices come second , Peruvian cuisine, nice menu. The hot dishes came barely lukewarm, the 'locos' forming part of a main dish were hard as a rock, inedible. They replaced them with... More

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
