Vaco y Vaca was my first pit stop at El Bosque and it was worth it. The service was prompt and the staff was friendly and attentive. The portions are crazy if you order a main course dish.

Nice place, food is regular, ...the only thing that really bothers me is that each time I tried to eat there, I had to wait like between 15-30 minutes to get seated ! I don't really recommend it ! ..or just to visit the place and take photos !

Amazing food, excelent prices, good sized portions and welcoming staff justify the 15 to 20 minute wait on weekends and lunch time on weekdays to sit. The renivations made to the original cafeteria were, at least for me, unnapealing and a realization that this excelent restaurant is growing beyond its original chilean cafeteria identity, which I miss for old times...
