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

Went for dinner here on the recommendation of our hostel. We ordered the seafood BBQ with salad and bottle of wine for just under 20,000peso. It was beautifully presented under a hot coals. There was a huge amount of food (we were unable to finish) ranging from muscles, white fish, shrimp, scallops and various other shelfish (some with melted cheese... More

We went here based on a recommendation from our hotel and ended up going twice. The food is great, the wine is cheap, the portions are huge and the service is very friendly (if not the fastest). The area is fine during the day, but would not recommend it after dark. The first time we had the fried fish, the... More

"Parillada de mariscos" is THE dish you must have in this restaurant. My boyfriend and me were amazed of the amount of seafood we managed to eat, it's quite big for 2 noraml human beings like us. The service was phenomenal, very friendly and kind. The atmosphere is very diverse: from local to national to international. Families, couples. We went... More

We went around 2 p.m and it was crowded. But we didn't wait so long for a table. The food was fantastic. I ate a cod with chilena salad and it was marvelous. Our waiter suggest us a wine which was perfect. My friends asked for other dishes that were also great: machas a la parmesana and ceviche. Totally recommended... More

This is where the locals come to eat. We were lucky to find this restaurant in the old port area of Valparaiso. The prices are lower than the resto's in Valparaiso's cerros because it is away from the regular tourist path. I had a tasty salmon dish while my girlfriend had a seafood empanada. There are also a wide variety... More

I went to Porto Viejo for lunch. The place is great, old fashioned, not touristy. The parmesan clams (appetizer) were delish, the paila (fish stew) was as overcooked as fish can be. I was glad I went to an old-fashioned restaurant, and I hate to be a food snob, but the food didn't make me want to go back again.... More

It's the best way to know a city to go where locals go - this place was recommended by our host - is's not a Michelin star restaurant but worth to visit - tasty fish and seafood - huge portions (the plate for 'two guys' :-) is enough for a small family) - all in all a nice experience

Some local adviced us to go there so I expected cheapest food but I've to say it's a very good place to go. First of all, the fish is really fresh and really tasty. I had a paila which is not at all as the Spanish paiela with rice. This is only sea food and it's delicious. However it cost... More
