Little out of center but worth a visit

We eat there twice, Empanadas de marisco great, seafood stew very good, reasonable prices. One evening we have good live jazz music. Don't be cheated by moderate look and surroundings . It worth a visit.

The ambience is so-so but it's readily accessible to downtown. The service was quite good. It's hard to beat the value.

Had lunch here and it was very good from a seafood standpoint. Starter of the parmesan scallops which had great flavor - it would have been nice had they sliced the muscle so you could remove the scallop from the shell easier and intact. Followed by the seafood soup. This was suppose to include fish but didn't. I would guess... More

This the first restaurant we eat in Chile, it is quite local, so the price is not that expensive compare to the fancy ones. We were brought in by our tour guide. The seafood soup is really good. And we were told in Chile, it is not allowed to serve the raw sea food, so it should be safe to... More

By far, this was my spouse's favorite restaurant in Valparaiso, recommended by a local friend of a friend. Fresh seafood, very local, casual dining. We had 2 meals at Porto Viejo. Lunch one day with friends included Seafood Chorrillana, a Chilean dish where meat is piled on french fries. My grilled white fish was tasty, even though I'm not a... More

We ate Valpaiaiso evening meals here twice during our short stay in this exciting city. It seems popular with locals, which says a lot, although the friendly and helpful staff were keen to practice their English and bring out their English menus. Not all the fish on the menu were available either night, which we took as another good sign... More

The food was decent and the portions generous. The decor/atmosphere was a little tired, but made up for by attractive serving staff! Would go back for more.

My hosts recommended this restaurant and it fulfilled the expectations. Had tasty fish with vegetables and a jugo de melon. They played nice music and most of the guests were locals.

This was my first meal in Valparaiso when I visited earlier this month. Lucky me that a local contact took me there! Porto Viejo is like restaurants that I have enjoyed in many cities around the world. Classic early 20th Century international decor...casual, busy, delicious food, fair prices, excellent service. Don't miss it!

Nowadays it a bit difficult to find a place that keeps the tradition when it comes to the local food, and this place does it in a wonderful way. Here in valparaiso is not that common to find a place that has good quality of sea food and reasonable prices, keeping the local custom, I would say that is one... More
