Most restaurants were closing between lunch and dinner service, but Vinilo was open with lots of customers. The waiter took time to explain the dishes to us in English, as our Spanish is non-existent. He recommended the home brewed beer, which my other half said was delicious. We enjoyed the slow cooked rabbit, though it looked somewhat unappealing as the... More

Finally, on a Sunday night, we decided to dine "Chilean style" and wait until 9:30 to find a meal. Unfortunately, place after place was already closed until we found Vinilo which was more than happy to have us. Nice wine options here and for very affordable prices. We found the food to be good, but nothing overly memorable. We ordered... More

We discovered Cafe Vinilo while looking for a place to get a light late meal on a Sunday night. It turned out to be a wonderful meal. Excellent friendly staff. Had a welcoming and intimate feel. We will definitely return before we leave Valparaiso.

Great food, great service, and Grandma's secret dessert is worth the trip. All wait staff speak English and are most helpful with the menu.

We found this place looking for a place to eat at the end of a day out day. We were the first to sit down in the restaurant. We sat right next to a vinyl dual-channel DJ table spinning all funk, blues, and Motown. The wait staff and who I presume to be the owner all spoke English very well... More

I ate a delicious octopus and an excellent glass of white wine . The service was very good too. It is simple but cozy and you fell welcome.

Had dinner here last night after a recommendation from our tour guide. Was not disappointed. Food was lovely and also the wine. Only has a Spanish menu but fluent English speaking waiters made it very easy to make an decision. Glad we ate there!

We had a great experience here choosing two contrasting Chilean dishes that were both excellent. I had a fried fish with an orangey sauce that was very subtly flavoured and served with a very tasty chickpea accompaniment. My wife had a rolled beef stuffed with egg and vegetables that was great, very tasty, and both dishes were cooked with some... More

We came for dinner having pottered around Conception (the hill) and were delighted. As the other reviews mention the service is great, the wine fantastic. It is a bit too pricey if you are a backpacker, but for anyone else I would completely endorse it. She had the pork with an amazing vegetable salad with avocado and I had the... More

We were greet by the owners, a lovely couple. They were very friendly, helpful and attentive, explaining all the menu for us. It was recommended by the B&B staff that we were hosted. It was a very good tip! They have a chilean wine called pipeño (very interesting and refreshing) and they have their own beer (blond one is very,... More
