If you are visiting Santiago this is the place to eat. I have travelled extensively and never experiences such "genuine" friendly service and excellent food. The chef at this Resturant is a gem.

The place is small and cosy, the waiters are really friendly and the chef even offered to email me one of his recipes! My dish was not as good as my husband's, but that can happen! The desert, "la bomba de chocolate" was AMAZING!

I chose this restaurant based on the reviews here and was disappointed. Four of us (middle aged Australians) had dinner there at my recommendation and I wished we had gone somewhere nicer, such as Bocanariz. It was a cold night, the restaurant is long and narrow so the place was freezing every time the front door opened. The food was... More

Well the reviews of this place are quite accurate. Very good food, excellent service, and a moderate on price. Not cheap bit not overly expensive. Would eat here again without a doubt and also recommend to friends.

I went here with an old friend, seduced by the high rating on Tripadvisor, but honestly, both of us were not so impressed. We both opted for the fish dishes; he chose the queen hake and I the thai dish. My dish was ok, even though for a thai dish, I had expected more sweetness, and my friend agreed that... More

We stayed two doors away at Hotel Orly and went here the first night because it was so close and we were tired. What a find! Meals were delicious, possibly slightly expensive but such a great menu to choose from and Pisco Sours to die for!! We ended up returning each night because we enjoyed the food so much. Their...

We had lunch there. Food and service was very good but the cost was about US$40 for lunch for 2 people. Good but not worth the high price.

Tripadvisor gave this top billing and I agree. Good service and great food. The cost was around $20 dollars US. I would still like to find a good restaurant in Santiago for under $10 USD.
