I should have been warned by the fact that the only music they played was Buena Vista Social Club. I can imagine that when the place is packed there may be a good party atmosphere here. But during the week there were few other guests and service was still very slow. My drink was OK (I had better Pisco Sours... More

I have spend several weeks in Valparaiso and I must say this is definitely my number 1!!! The design is cosy and modern at the same time with a big fireplace for the colder days and a terrace for summerdays!! The staff is superfriendly and their music selection (loungy, jazz) fantastic! The tapas are pretty big, with quite some vegetarian... More

Yuck! I cannot believe this place is a hot spot in valporaiso. Food is quite unimaginative and lacks any flavor. Wine was great, but grilled cheese with a few pieces of seafood on top is not my idea of tasty offerings. Small menu with unappealing choices. Great wine though. Stop by for a drink, then head out for something to... More

Very good tapas and other menu items in terms of both taste, overall quality and quantity - portions are much larger than usual for tapas bars. Be prepared, however, to wait a bit when there are more people. Although very friendly, the waitress was also the bartender and she seemed a bit overwhelmed once the place started to fill up... More

We had some tapas and a few cocktails here, and the pisco sours were just delightful. It was a little frustrating that people could smoke inside, so we sat in the very small courtyard that doesn't have the best views. But the food was yummy, just not super cheap.

Would recommend going here in the evening for wine and apps. It is a lovely little restaurant that had a lit fireplace which was so cozy as it was cold out during our visit. It's also located in a great area, cerro alegre, which was my favorite neighborhood to walk around in.

Had an excellent evening meal/Tapas here. Very friendly staff, great service and - most importantly - food was terrific. Roaring fire in the dining room, well-made mojitos and a mellow vibe made for a wonderful meal. Wish we could've gone back again...

Poblenou consistently rates among the best restaurants in Valparaiso. The food is tasty, the service attentive, and the cocktails well prepared and plentiful. My first time at Poblenou was on a cold rainy winter evening but the fire place was lit, and I had a wonderful time sharing wine and tapas with friends. The restaurant is well located on Urriola,...

Poblenou is a small tapas bar with a charming atmosphere, good food and excellent service. The owners are extremely friendly and do whatever they can to provide a memorable experience. The atmosphere in Poblenou is one of the things that make it stand out. Also, they service excellent drinks and have a strong selection of wines. I would definitely recommend... More
