My husband and I did the ten-course tasting menu with the wine pairing on a Monday evening. What an experience! One or two of the courses were, admittedly, a little too "interesting" to eat, but the experience overall was fabulous -- visually appealing with unique textures and flavors that made for a fabulous 3+ hour dining experience. Each course was... More

We'd put our experience at Borago up there with some of the best we've had anywhere in the world. The chefs do a fantastic job with the food. They forage & source within 200km of the restaurant. The Mugaritz influence is there, but the food is uniquely Chilean. Even though the kitchen was getting crushed on a busy Saturday night,... More

The 10 course tasting menu with wine pairing is really fantastic. Not only are all the dishes sourced from regions of Chile, the very helpful staff who speak a variety of languages take trouble to explain each dish and ensure that the diners make the most of the experience. Amazing to eat so interestingly and well in such a relaxed... More

Borago is to date the best restaurant I have ever eaten. (Alinea has been topped.) An A + combination of food/atmosphere/presentation. So inventive, so delicious, so beautifully presented...... Santiago is a wonderful city to visit. This restaurant alone would be worth the trip.

This is hands down one of the best meal experiences I've ever had. Borago redefines a great meal by infusing a Chilean experience into your dinner. Each dish comes with a story and fully exemplifies Chilean cuisine. The chef who prepares your dish will come to your table and give you the full story behind it, even where he had... More

Let me start this review by stating, that I enjoy a nice dinner every now and then. Borago is more than a nice meal, it's a great experience, almost on par with French Laundry and Alinea. From my understanding, the gastronomy scene in Santiago is developing, and Borago is one of the first of its kind. The coursed meal was... More

Boragó was no doubt the most different gastronomic experience I've ever had. We chose the 11 course menu and the food was exquisite. Most flavours were very different from everything I've ever tasted, and that was a great experience. The presentation of the plates was amazing and each one was more surprising than the other. For desert, we had the... More

This lovely restaurant is alive with the passion and dedication of its ( enormous, more than 100 people we were told) staff. Whether foraging in the nearby forests for mushrooms, wild strawberries or leaves for the dishes, or exploring local food these people are passionate about what they do. We had the larger tasting menu, and each dish was a... More
