The evening experience was perfect with amazing attention to all detail. We tasted dishes we have never encounted before surrounded by an atmosphere of intense passion that was evident by he enthusiasm of the head chef and all waiters.

Well presented but you cannot test a good plate of food. The service was poor, just one option to eat, very bad dessert.. Prepare for eat horses! :(

We have had the good fortune of eating in many Michelin starred restaurants in Europe and this place stands up with the best of them at a fraction of the cost. For £60 (including tip) we shared a starter and desert platter, had a main course each and shared a bottle of wine. A must visit in Santiago, if this... More

Our hotel The Aubrey recommended the restaurant as it was just down the street and we wanted to try traditional Chilean fare with a modern edge. The restaurant is beautifully designed and felt intimate. Our waiter Mike was fluent in English which made ordering very easy. The experience started off well when they brought out a very creative and unusual... More

My wife and I decided to visit this restaurant last Friday June 9th, and we are very happy we did. The evening did not start out the best way though, because we were seated outside in the patio, and it was a bit chilly, so we asked for a heater, but the restaurant was out of gas. But subsequent we... More

Amazing meal. Really happy we decided to try this place. Great service, our waiter did a great job, spoke english very well and explained all aspects of the meal from the bread plate to our mains. Great value, couldn't believe we paid around $80 AUD for a shared appetizer, 2 mains and wine. We paid the same price at another... More

The restaurant is set a block away from the busy hubbub of Calle Constitucion in a quaint space with half of the tables inside and half the tables in an outside courtyard that looks into the kitchen. As it was rather cold, we chose to sit inside. As my Spanish is basically non-existent, it was nice that they had an... More

Food is fantastic. Unique flavors and meals. The bread plate and additional touches to the dining experience are really quite luxurious and add to the amazing value of the meal.

We ate here twice on our recent trip through Santiago on our way to and from Patagonia. Amazing! The bread plate is the best bread plate you will ever experience with over 6 different types of bread ranging from ancestral recipes traditional in the south of Chile up to the north of Chile. The wine menu is good. My husband... More

My boyfriend and I went to this restaurant after a long day of hiking in the Andes and loved it! The food is certainly different and you have to be a little adventurous to try it, but it was definitely worth it. We split the appetizer sampler - which included lamb tongue and rabbit - my boyfriend had the lamb... More
