It was recommended by a local coworker and I have to thanks him. 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

The flavours and combinations of different foods and tastes used here are really very excellent. This is also a restaurant where the wealthy come to be seen. Our meal was exquisite. The wines are also typically well priced and very good indeed. This was one of my all time best meals in S America

We had the ceviche taster which was very nice. Service was good and the decor is very nice. A great choice of a Peruvian restaurant in Santiago.

Ate here with friends towards the end of a holiday in Chile. Restaurant food to date had been mediocre. La Mar restored my faith in the cooking and service available. As the name suggests, the food on offer is mostly seafood. It is beautifully cooked and presented, as is the wine. I was even pleasantly surprised at the bill. As... More

We went there since evryone recommended this place, we have been at La Mar in mexico city and there was no difference, the food is ok but not amazing. We asked for ceviches and tiraditos that were just ok... The place is full always, it seems is the place to be in Santiago these days. If you want nice ambiance... More
