You won't be hungry for a couple of days if you finish your meal at this joint! Very generous portions of food.

Great friendly service, delicious good and good prices. We had the pork chops and Pastel de Choclo - Chilean corn pie,almost like a Shepherd's Pie but with a delicious creamy corn topping rather than mashed potato. We have a 9 month old baby so it always a relief when restaurants have a high chair. They made him some mashed potato... More

I come to this place since 2008, when it was a very good Chilean cuisine restaurant with large portions, homemade preparation and excellent prices. I Will never visit this restaurant again. Currently, due to the pathetic management related to the expansion of branches in Santiago. Currently in this poorly served place, you will find that the menu was restricted, plus... More

Absolutely delicious food for anyone who wishes to try traditional Chilean cuisine. Very busy at times, popular with locals. Large portions, make sure you go when you're hungry! Staff are really lovely and very professional. Quality of food is superb and very good value for money.

We know that most of things is big in the USA, but they actually have great things in Chile too. At "Juan y medio" you'll get very good food for a very low price. Juan was a great man and portions created is entirely in his spirit! Churrascos is served as large as an aircraft hangar and the "italiano" looks... More

This restaurant has some of the largest portions I have seen. Food is the "simpler" more "rustic" kind - but then the Chilean cuisine is not particularly known for its fine food. Juan y Medio is functional, good for lunch with colleagues or family. Good value.

This place is really great for going in group, on special occasions, or just for the sake of it. Very spacious, nice attention, and the food is really good, and served in really large portions, so go with an empty stomach.

Liked: Price was cheap. Disliked: barely cooked chips, overcooked Empanadas, grumpy didn't-want-to-be-there waitress. Don't bother. Go to Vacas Gordas instead. lovely staff and amazing food, unfortunately they were closed due to the Election on Sunday so we had to come here (lunch).

This is the second restaurant they opened. This one located in Santiago, Calle Huérfanos 2076. I had tried the main one on Ruta 5 Sur. That one is great offering typical Chilean food, country style. We were looking forward to visit this one. I asked for "Humitas", a corn dish, they were huge, too big for one person, one is... More
