Three years ago I ate for my first time at "Donde Augusto" in Santiago. It was wonderful! Tasty and juicy. I rejoiced to eating there again this year. The disappointment was great. When we ate at Donde Augusto this year, the seafood was bad and the service was significantly lower than last time. The bouillabaisse was not good. Appearance and... More

Ok, if you are in and around the Mercardo Central and you get peckish, this restaurant located in the centre, but also with space on the sides and with a mezzanine level is probably the pick. But be warned, it is a tourist trap, choose your seafood with care. If you are not an adventurous diner and don't mind the... More

Not only the food was very good, but attention from waiters and owner Augusto was excelent. Kind of hard to choose from the large list on the menu. We had crab claws, and locos, which are some kind of big clam. The restaurant is in Mercado Central and was recomended to us by family.

Placed in the center of the Central Market, it offers average food at an expensive price. We tried the pastel the jaiba which was tasty and the clams with cheese were dry and not very good. Service is fast but not personalized.

We had high expectations because of its colocation with a large fish market and the high recommendation of an expatriate familiar with the local restaurant scene. We found it to be expensive, with bland, mediocre food, and a cheesy steakhouse kind of environment.

The market is a great experience, you can go around and see all types of fish and very strange seafood such as the famous locos, erizos (sea urchin )and pure. All of them are great but some are strong, the price is outrageous for a market. I still love markets though, the conchitas a la parmesana, parmesan clams are delicious

Very traditional place right across the train station. If you are looking for a fancy restaurant this place is not it. The name of the game is tradional. Cooking is indeed impressive and tasty particularly all sea food. At lunch time tge place was packed. The food was generously served and well cooked. Service was good albeit a bit chaotic.... More

Excellent and unique food. Great variety of dishes and very tasty pisco sour. It is always busy and sometimes you will have to wait. Reservations are highly recommended.

OK. The Mercado Central is a tourist attraction, so is priced a bit high (hence the three stars). The food is fresh, and authentic. I saw another review where the guy ordered congrio and called it bland (wanting some kind of sauce to make it better). Mine today was exactly as it should be. The 'sauce' they served me was... More

Great service. Great seafood. Winter is the best season for king crab, so it was super fresh, a bit expensive but very good. Also the ceviche mixto was great. All this with a super cold Astral craft beer. Just amazing !!
