Epicureo Providencia has CLOSED

A group of friends and I went looking for this place on 20 September 2014 and found that the place no longer exists under the name Epicureo Providencia. It has been replaced with a Peruvian restauarant called Barandiaran. We decided to eat there anyways and found that it was pretty good and well... read more

1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2014

As of yesterday, the restaurant ranked #90 of 1,490 Restaurants in Santiago; however, the restaurant closed over 3 months ago. Suggestion -- Might not be a bad idea to take closed restaurants out of the ranking system. Just a thought. btw - the restaurant that took over their space, Barandiaran, was quite nice. But that review is for another page.

My husband and I had a nice dinner there, the food and fish were very tasty and fresh! The decoratioj ould certainly be better, but the service is friendly and they do try to speak e Entlish. I recommend the yellow tuna!

We enjoyed our evening in Epicureo very much: the service was excellent - a very friendly and helpful waiter! The ceviche was excellent, and our main dishes were very good as well! My boys liked the Mexican grill a lot, the meat was very good! And also: the desserts were exquisite! You have to take the Volcano thing: like a... More

We chose this restaurant to have dinner in our last night in Chile. Staff was really nice and helpful, informal as we like - our waitress was also very helpful. The space is also interesting and comfortable. The food itself is good with plenty variety and despite we are not huge fans of this kind of cuisine (cocina de autor)... More

The atmosphere isn't great, and it is a bit pricy (averaging about $12-15 per person) but this one dish totally made the meal for me. My friend got it and wasn't hungry so I ended up trying, and then finishing it. It is a very unique ceviche made with aji de gallina. When we asked they told us they buy... More

We came here based on the glowing tripadvisor reviews, so we ended up being disappointed as it wasn't that great. The food was cooked reasonably well but was quite bland (didn't finish because it got tiresome eating it). They spoke English which was definitely helpful, but there wasn't much to the service. Perhaps we were there on a slow night,... More

Went out with a friend while on a business trip. Was checking out the various restaurants on the street, and was looking for a place where I would know what I was eating (my illiteracy with Spanish was limiting my choices). At this place not only could they explain to me what they had, but they were ready to spice... More

Excellent food, better service, but it killed my mood to wait 40+ minutes for the appetizers. I wasn't able to order a main course to have to argue with the owner for it and at the end my kids were falling asleep at the tables.
