I found this restaurant on Tripadvisor. After many meals of seafood, my kids were ready for a change. I ordered Wiener schnitzel and my husband had rabbit. The food was very authentic Austrian and the beers as well. The owners are very welcoming. The restaurant is small, so get a reservation for evenings. We enjoyed our meal and will be... More

I had a delicious duck confit and my husband had perfectly tender and very tasty deer, both really cooked to perfection. Desert was a great surprise as I order 'salzburger nocken' which was a delight, totally recommend it!

Thanks for Trip Advisor for sending us here for lunch. My husband was a bit reluctant, in that he thought the food might be too heavy for a summer lunch. There were plenty of choices of fish & salads for him so he was surprised and happy. I went for the smoked pork chops, which were wonderful, & finished it... More

Hubby and I just returned from a happy dinner at EL AUSTRIACO (The Austrian) after reading reviews here and we were NOT disappointed... Pictures are authentic- that's exactly what you'll be served... Old school Austrian/German/ meat and potatoes type fare with a Chilean flair run by husband and wife team who come out to say hello to you! Food was... More

At first I was unsure whether eating Austrian food in Chilean resort town is the best option. After all, I realized that it was the best selection I could make. Maybe, we were lucky, as when we came in, the restaurant was quite empty, so we could get a nice table without a reservation. Later on the place was full.... More

In Viña for a couple days with my family, we picked El Austriaco for dinner one night based entirely on Tripadvisor reviews. We weren't disappointed! It's a fairly unassuming place, but you definitely know you're in a European restaurant when you sit down. The owner and his wife run the place, and they've been in Viña for about 12 years.... More

I selected El Austriaco based on the reviews and once again, wasn't disappointed. What a wonderful night with good friends far from home. Dieter welcomed us into his "home", and created an unbelievable meal - my filet was as good as I have ever had. When I'm far from home, I want a great night out, and El Austriaco delivered.... More

Living in Viña del Mar mi entire life I can say this is the best Restaurant in town. Congratulations to Dieter (owner/chef) and his wife, they certainly do a great job. It's really worth paying what they ask for the food, it's delicious. Really a MUST if you visit Viña del Mar.

Outstanding Austrian Food. My wife had Duck, and I had the Wiener Schnitzel, we shared a wonderful apple pancake for desert. The service was excellent and the food out standing. It was fun talking with the owner and his wife. We will be back!
