The environment is nice, comfortable, classy, soft, with nice tables and room enough to move naturaly among them so, you feel very comfortable as son as you step in. The service... More

Another dish is Tialapia, it is a mildly flavored whitefish that is served lightly breaded, always excellent. The sautéed shrimp(Camerones a Pil-Pil) are on equaled by any restaurante that we...

We go to this restaurant frequently and as usual the service is friendly and the food consistently perfect without any flaws. They keep a small menú and the wine list focused on local wines. Try the steak tartare, parmesan scallops as starters and the fish special aux herbs with German style potatoes as main course. Enjoy!!

The ambiance was a little bit formal, staff friendly but not very dedicated, they look a little bit tired. I liked the sauerkraut with sweinshaxse, my friend liked... More

I have almost 3 months living in Chile, and being from Venezuela makes me wanna have a good tasty meal. This hasn't been the case in general in Chile, food is insipid. But in El Austriaco they serve great food with great taste. It's served by the owners (the chef's wife gave me great pointers to order).

An amazing place to way compared to the rest of vina's restaurants. Quick and efficient service and very friendly chef who will occasionally come out and make sure that you are enjoying the time. Food is truly authentic and as my German friend said " it's almost like my grandma made it", which means a lot. Defiantly coming back for... More
