Excellent. Had the salmon with some kind of earl grey crust. So tender! Makes you appreciate that Chile is the worlds biggest salmon exporter. One of the best meals I had in Chile. Also ordered the scallops/ostiones but preferred the salmon. Service is very good. The owner/manager is very talkative and speaks very good English. Plus clearly loves French cuisine... More

Short and slightly unusual menu of Chilean favourite, plus craft beer. Good service and chill atmosphere.

Great meal, the owners went out of their way to help with the menu and the wine list. My son and I had good food and talked English football with the owner. My best meal in Chile.

We came across the great little place on a whim, and what a fabulous surprise it was! We had multiple glasses of delicious wine and beer, which lead to a fabulous bottle of wine neither of us ever heard about before. The sommelier, Maria Luisa was fabulous! She also pointed us in a great direction for wineries to visit in... More

We had a really lovely evening out at Cafe Vinilo. It's got a great atmosphere, fun and laid back, lots of character, and with great music of course. The food is good--Chilean food and ingredients but with a modern twist (our guidebook called it Chilean bistro food, which is a good description). The beers and wines are really nice. The... More

the host was excellent, helping to explain the menu given my Spanish is not great. The carve he starter was outstanding, along with my pork main. Another highlight was their own brewed beer, really good pale ale. Highly recommend.
