We ate at this restaurant by mistake, having been recommended the restaurant next door (the Liguria), and we thought they were all the same restaurant! Having eaten here, we returned twice more as we enjoyed it so much (and never tried the Liguria). The staff were very attentive and the chef/patron very friendly. We found it ideal for a light...

LOVE this restaurant! Best Gazpacho soup I've ever had. Wonderful wine, bread, dessert and coffee! Waiter very nice, helpful and patient, especially with our limited Spanish. Very quaint restaurant.

Saturday night and we followed previous Tripadvisor reviews to find this place. Menus in different languages, and lucky us to have Graham, whose father was from Yorkshire Nx mother Chilean, to recommend ANC describe dishes further. Attentive and friendly, right down to listing us dome brands if Pisco and which are best to drink as sours or straight. Fantastic value... More

We went for dinner based on Tripadvisor reviews and were not disappointed. The restaurant (more what we would think of as a bistro) was about half full on a monday night. The service was excellent, the food delicious (we went for all three courses) and the courses were served by the chef and owner. This is a place where they... More

We went for lunch because it was close and we were exhausted from a long flight. We went for dinner because lunch was fabulous. The sidewalk café atmosphere was wonderful.(Of course, perfect weather helped!) The server -- who spoke little English -- was charming to us. I think we took two hours over lunch. The light, local white wine which... More

Based on its previous reviews, we at this restaurant on our first night in Santiago and are so glad we did! We had a fantastic scallop appetizer, great dinners and delicious deserts. Everything we ordered was delicious and the waiter recommended a very nice wine. The service, generally, was fantastic. A great experience and I'd certainly go back again!

We have been in Santiago for over a month and this is by far the best meal we had. Food was great and service was excellent. Plus they have menus in English and the waiter and chef actually both spoke English - very unusual for Santiago. The atmosphere is also very nice. Highly recommend it!

My husband had his first taste of mancha is mussels and and/or clams with Parmesan cheese baked with a delicate sauce. His main course was delicious salmon. They were very attentive to my vegan diet and prepared a delicious salad with pasta pomodora as my main course. It was a beautiful evening with very good wine and service.

This street side restaurant under grand Sycamore trees is like a magnet! So charming! The wait staff is friendly and efficient. My Merluza was heavenly with thin slices of roasted garlic and cilantro and resting on thick slices of potato in a bubbling sea of local olive oil.. It doesn't get much better!

We have been here a week and have eaten at some of the recommended restaurants but found this one by accident. It was without a doubt the best restaurant yet and we will eat here tomorrow as our last night. My wife had a ravioli but my conger eel with seafood was spectacular. The whole meal for two with four... More
