On a cold miserable day we stopped in here for lunch. Warm welcome and friendly service, great views of the port, our entrees were main meal sized, so on the waiters advise we didn't order more and didn't need to.

It's in the heart of the harbor and runs like classic, formal restaurants in Chile, waiters in black writing down to the last bit. The view of the harbor can be impressive. It used to be that you weren'' allowed to take pictures (you could be a spy...). The food was average, at best, not cheap either. Service was, nevertheless,... More

old style valparaiso restaurant, very classical, great view of the port since you are actually in the port. service is very good, almost theatrically so. there is no beating their razor clams parmesan, a dozen per person on our visits is not uncommon.

the bote salvavidas is a place with an mazing view to the pacific, but the food is overpriced and bad.... only desserts worth it but the seafood is not totally fresh and regular dishes are boring and not tasty. only for a drink at the terrace.
