I don't know who is not impressed by this restaurant. I've been around, and thought my meal here was one of the most outstanding in my life.

The ambience of the restaurant is wonderful, especially the area out front that is covered, which gives off the feeling of outdoor seating. The staff was very friendly and the space is very colorful. However, I thought the food was average and the price is rather high. For US$50 for a meal, I expected better food. The cebiche mixto was... More

La mar combines delicious food (i strongly recommend the "Plancha de mar anticuchera"), great ambiance (the ambiance and lighting on the grond floor terrace emulates you're at the sea) and good service (at least relative to the avergae dervice you get at Chilean restaurants). It's sibling restaurant in Lima (the first La Mar opened by renowned chef Gaston Acurio) has... More

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.
