In operation for 12 years I think this is where the locals in the hospitality industry in Valpo go to eat and drink. Excellent service, our Ecuadorean waiter explained all of the dishes in English as some of the regional dishes they serve are not seen on a lot of menus. The portions are very generous and the flavours are... More

A very warm welcome here, and a detailed description of the dishes, helped us chose some delicious Chilean food. Pork, infused with the Chilean Merken (smoked chilli mix) melted in the mouth, and the ceviche was good too. The service and wine was excellent, too. All in all, a lovely evening.

We had a lovely dinner here and were very pleased with the effort and time that was taken to explain the menu in English. The food was hearty Chilean fare and was very tasty. Great music being played in the background gave it a relaxed and fun atmosphere.

This old butchers shop with the best DJ playing LPs and 45's is just fantastic. Great decor, atmosphere, super friendly staff and food great (fab Cerviche and Seafood). Great local beers and wines to match. We had so much fun!!! Will always remember it.

Great restaurant in Valparaiso. I was visiting my daughter, who is studying here so I have a lot of time alone. I loved the food and atmosphere of this restaurant. There is a man spinning the best music quietly in the background. Bee Gees, Beatles, Chilean music, he had the right touch! My Osso bucco was amazing! Just chill and... More

Chilean cooking is not great at flavour, but here they at least understand texture. Nice use of walnuts (mariposas) in the mash (pulpo). The rabbit was of the bleached-white, farm-fattened kind. I've been to Vinilo four times, and the rabbit's the best. No horse on the menu. They sell local beer, but unfortunately, it's not very good. A great example... More

We enjoyed our lunch at this restaurant very much! There was no English menu, but the waitress was able to assist us with most translation. Service was quick as was the food arriving to our table. Reasonable prices as well. Nice view of passing street action if you like that sort of outlook.
