Full tables in a street of half empty restaurants!

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... read 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

If you're looking for a high-end, expensive meal, look elsewhere. If you want fresh local seafood, friendly service in a location 3 blocks from the Port that looks like the locals from the old days never left, this is the spot for you. The fish was excellent, the Ceviche to start was even better. The wait staff explained the choices,and... More

We left very satisfied after choosing to have the 4900-peso menu del dia at the convivial Porto Viejo. We had a recommendation to go to the west end of Cochrane for some good seafood restaurants and found Porto Viejo to be the only one filled with locals and without aggressive touts trying to get you inside their own establishment. The... More

I was following the recommendation of my travel guide but was a bit disappointed at the end. The waiter discouraged us to take the cheap menu del dia and instead recommended fish from the menu and some very cheese starter. Food was mediocre, the service was a inpatient with the language and gave us the feeling they want to sell... More

The place is fairly industrial, and the service not necessarily fast, but the seafood is good quality and well priced. They have a typically annoying English-language menu which they will try to foist on customers - have a go at the castellano, it's not rocket science. They did a decent steak (the Argentinian style), with the instruction 'super, super, super,... More
