A kind of parmasan shrimp risotto is distinguishable. But the beef steak is smelly for Korean. The restaurant is in the good atmosphere with kind and friendly staff.

The restaurant was recommended to us by a friend in Santiago, who used to live in Valparaiso. We were delighted by the manager's warm greeting, the complementary pisco sours, and our delicious lunch - salad and mussels with a Chilean white wine. The food was beautifully presented. A purple wall next to a lime green wall was a pleasant surprise,... More

My friend and I had a 70th birthday dinner here. Excellent Pisco sour, prawns with Parmesan, huge South American steak and a good bottle of wine, about $A60. Really good and excellent value

We very much enjoyed our dinner at Sabor Color (or Saborcolor -- they seem to be pretty loose about the exact spelling). It had been recommended by our hotel, despite the fact the hotel itself had a gourmet restaurant of its own. So it is highly thought of by locals in Valparaiso. We enjoyed sharing a spectacularly delicious beef pot... More

My husband and I dined here and ordered a bottle of wine, ceviche, both meat dishes and a chocolate dessert. The only bad thing I can say is they forgot our ceviche, but I was stuffed and thankful they did. The slow cooked meat dish was a 9 and the beef dish was a 10! My husband is not a... More

Lovely location in a middle of nice, colorful and touristic Valparaiso district; greatly refurbished interior, very stylish way. On the food front, it looks like most of energy went into decoration -unless we were very unlucky- as bruschetta had nothing to do with their italian counterpart and even ceviche wasn't very good, a bit tasteless as difficult as it seems....

My husband and I had a great lunch here. We had an excellent bottle of wine, and good seafood. The service was fine. We were in Valpo off season, so the restaurant was dead. But the food was great.
