Cosy and tasty

There is a cosy and nice feeling to this restaurant. The meals that we ordered were delicious and a good size. The staff were helpful and we managed to get by with our very limited Spanish. Our children are gluten free and we managed to convey that and they had a lovely steak meal.

sabor color was a nice spot to sit outside and people watch- made a nice pisco sour too. seems to be well attended by the locals. for me it lacked any warmth and atmosphere. we had dinner here one night and the food was pretty good - we had the 27 hour cooked beef with mashed potatoes which was really...

My husband and I have lived in Buenos Aires, Argentina for 8 months and often hear complaints about the service in Argentina. And given, it is very hands off and not always attentive; unlike in the US, service in Argentina is not meant to entertain, but simply to take orders and deliver food. And while their service may leave something... More

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
