Spanish tapas in Stgo

Great Northern Spanish/Basque-styled restaurant with a bar people actually sit at. The folks there don't actually speak Euskara, as I discovered, but the pintxos are good and the beer is cold!

If I had to choose one restaurant in Santiago, it would be El Txoko. Lots of walk-ins so make sure you reserve a table before going. Must try the Sangria, the Tortilla Espanola, Chipirones en su tinta (squid in it's ink), and the Cabrito (goat).

We were there with my family for lunch to have the menu of the day. I had lamb and potatoes . It reminded me my mum's kitchen . The waiters were very friendly as well! I will come back!

Incredibly good food in the Bellas Artes area. A half a block walk from the Bellas Artes Metro Station. The Squid Ink pasta was amazing.

Oh, my..that place is expensive but we had an amazing time. Great food and Georgiana and Manuel are great with us. I highly recommend a desert that has meringue and chocolate!

I wish I could give this restaurant a better review since the staff, especially the bartender, were all so nice and the interior is so warm and welcoming. Unfortunately, the food is awful. We sat at the bar and chose from the small plates that were displayed along the top of the bar. There is only a very small selection... More

We were staying near this restaurant in Santiago and walked past this restaurant many times before deciding to dine there. We started the dinner with very nice wine, and once we ordered our drinks, the service was great! Our waiter made recommendations for us based on our preferences, and we were both extremely happy with our meals. And at the... More

The service was lacking. The atmosphere is ruined by the lighting. However, decent beer and wine can be obtained here in a place resembling a bar you would find in Madrid. If you are passing by and must have a drink, not a bad choice but considering the bars just around the corner are packed while this remains almost empty,... More
