Service here is really what is earning the 3 stars, as I thought they were relatively attentive and nice considering I was there on a pretty busy night. I wanted to like it, as it's always good to have a fallback ex-pat bar when you're feeling a little homesick, but what I ordered was very very mediocre. Had their amber... More

A place for students and young people. Very big place and too loud music in dinner time. But burgers are great! And the price is average I guess. You get really big and tasty burgers for about 5-6 000 CLP.

We stopped in here to catch the SEC Championship game. It's definitely a "gringo" bar, but it's a great place to watch American sports.

This sports bar has become pretty expensive for the stuff they serve, but the big screen tvs are always playing some sports game, and it's always packed, so it has a pretty good atmosphere. Pricey, but if you want to be with foreigners or be in a place where you know they'll speak English, this is for you.

Ideal location for watching American sports on TV -- NFL, March Madness, etc. Fair (but pricey) Mexican grub (burritos, salads, tacos). Good spot to meet other expats. Lots of different "rooms" including outdoor spaces with TV.

International bar/pub where they serve many cokctails, beers and a few burgers/salads. For a large salad and 2 drinks 11 000 pesos. Nice terrace where you can enjoy the sun and meet people around a cigarette and Watch soccer/football games.

Upon looking for a sports bar to watch some American sports and eat some food that reminded us of home, we came across California Cantina. First off, the food we have had there is nothing like home! It seems like they are simply capitalizing on homesick expats looking for a piece of home, which is fine with me, but they... More

Nice place, tourist and local people looking for diverse things. Prices accord to the sector (Providencia night life is not cheap) Excelent staff Entrance free before midnight most days. Extremely loud music, it will hurt your ears after a couple of minutes.

It's a ver fun place, where you can have a great time with friends. They usually organize different thematic days, so it's ideal to have a good time. I thing the food is good, but nothing really special. The magic comes from the scene.

Had a most excellent sunday afternoon with my boyfriend, the burgers came fast and he enjoyed the game that was on, perfect! They should have more variety of juices and iced tea, bottled would be fine.
