Very, very good! Concept is a la par with Noma in Copenhagen and Eleven Madison in NYC where the cuisine highlights regional traditions with unique local ingredients. The. Chef, Adolfo Guzman trained at Mugaritz in San Sebastián and you can see the special care put on little details. The restaurant is not big, airy, well lighted and where the kitchen... More

Borago is a restaurant inspired by the likes of Ferran Adria and Heston Blumenthal but informed by molecular cuisine rather than ruled by it. This is not just a place to get something good to eat but a culinary experience that challenges, thrills and amuses with all aspects of the food, the wine, the presentation and the service. Examples: excellent... More

I love a great meal, and am all about spending the right money for an an amazing meal. Borago was definetly not one. Not only did I leave the meal still hungry but I was completely unimpressed. We strongly contemplated stopping to get a burger on the way home. The meals were unique and interesting but left the guest expecting... More

A tasting menu for 39000 pesos with a wine"flight" additional, no wine list, and a mysterious branch or part of a tree appearing on each plate served. The restaurant has no wine list; a very strange hard bread is presented in an individual paper bag.. a little too cute. For the uninformed, rich..but not for experienced and appreciative travelers. The... More

A friend recommended Borago to me and I went on my next trip to Santiago. I ordered the 16 course 'local' menu 2 days before and was not disappointed. The small courses range from interesting and really good to exquisite. If there was a weak point, I felt the wine and beverage (a couple of them were beer ,juice or... More

Fantastic. There is a permeable passion and pride for their food from the bottom up with every employee. Highly recommend the tasting menu with wine pairing. An experience worth the high cost.

The place itself is casual, which only highlights the ambition of the restaurant. Everything here is about creativity and taking the guest to a marvellous journey. Exceptionally attentive waiters help you fully understand what you're tasting, each of the eight courses is a wonder for the eyes and a rediscovery of local products and culinary traditions, revisited by an inventive...

The food, service and attention to detail are amazing. The fixed menu had 7 wonderful courses paired with 6 different terrific Chilean wines and 1 Chilean beer. In our opinion, this is one of the top 3 restaurants we have ever dined at in all continents we have been lucky to have visited. The concept is sea/farm to table in... More

We went several times to this restaurant but each time it is a new sensory experience ! I recommend you the “Endemica menu” which has 8 small couses. You will discover the different part of Chile and its products. A great effort is made on the presentation and on the mix of flavours. All dishes are presented in an very... More
