We were a big family of all abe groups and everyone found something to like in the menu of continental and regional dishes

Headed here he other week based on a recommendation from a colleague. I wasn't overly impressed, have definitely eaten better elsewhere whilst being in Santiago. The most off putting thing we found about this restaurant is how the waiters pounce on you when you walk in the restaurant, as thy want you to sit at one of the tables they... More

The rib eye was average and expensive for Santiago. I did really like my salad (Avacado, Tomato, and onion) . A very nice wine selection , but again very expensive for the area. I would recommend La Hacienda instead.

I have eaten at Happening many times during trips (business and family) to Santiago. It is one of my favorite places in Chile to eat. The tuna is exquisite. The beef is superb. All of the seafood is very good. It has a wonderful atmosphere, perfect for business and family dining.

It was clean but not spotless. Service was friendly and English spoken. Starters were bizarre. We ordered chorizo and another type... More

I don't speak Spanish and was very grateful for them assigning me an English speaking waiter. He made a great recommendation for a matching wine and the steak was great

This is part of an Argentinian chain. The meat dishes are outstanding and the portions very large. The staff were very obliging and service was quite good. The atmosphere is excellent and we were part of a 20 person group. Most could not finish their meals We had a most enjoyable evening andvwould happily return

This is the Chilean branch of an Argentinian chain of restaurant. It is fancy and pricey, but worths it.
