The key thing to enjoy this place is to understand it is mainly a BAR. Would like to enjoy a fine dine go down starts to its bigger brother Opera. Cathedral offers good food, a large wine list, good beers selection, local ingredients, a mixed crowd, etc. This is the "restaurant" aspect, including prices. The "bar" aspect is also there.... More

My favorite restaurant. Perfect food, kind of a quiet place though. Not for party, but great experience. Never disappointed. Great location.

We went there for lunch. It occupies two floors (perhaps three) and occupies the corner street with a great view of the surrounding area. Business professionals seemed to assemble here for power lunches. The food was very good but was on the pricy side. The wine list was extensive. I think this place would be an ideal place to visit...

This is an upmarket restaurant and not busy. The food was seriously good. My husband appreciated the excellent wine list and there was a first class sommelier to help in the selection.

After an extraordinary Carmina Burana performance at the Municipal Theater, I invited my wife to Opera Catedral, a trendy down town restaurant in Santiago. We decided to have a light dinner in the terrace, in a nice late summer night. The place is charming, smokers are welcome, service impecable, and the food delicious. Sole, my wife had a quiche with... More

The food was decent, I ate a risotto al marinero and so did the majoirty of my friends. The bar was comfortable with a relaxed ambience. On the weekends there's live music and everyone gets up for a boogie. I've lived in Chile for 5 years now and the thing that always lets these places down is the waiters and... More

We were just walking around searching for a place to eat when I saw this restaurant just across the street. I looked through the windows and I thought that it looked lovely and that it deserved a try. We walked in and I asked for a table for two. I do not know why, but the hostess says "but it... More

I'm not sure how this restaurant can be consider one of the top in the country. Sure, the food is very good, but not great. The service is decent. The atmosphere is good, except for the terrace, which is an absolute disaster... reminiscent of a pub or dive bar. The prices were a bit high in my opinion, as the... More
