Very good long menu, as with the wine list. The ambience is excellent and the service was as good as it gets. Not the cheapest but very good value for money.

Good food. Nice selection of desserts. The restaurant doesn't have anything special (no view, fireplace,etc). Service is good.

I would have to say the best meal in Anto. Great selection of drinks and wines, well prepared and presented meals - great staff, very friendly and always accommodating. I have been in Anto long enough to probably go through the entire menu at Amares, and I have enjoyed all their dishes. My personal favorites were Lomo Saltado and their... More

Amares was a surprise! The food was rich, intense and luscious. Joan described it as ‘serious’ food, ‘Michelin-quality’. It is owned by Chileans, but the head chef was Peruvian. Joan had Mahi-mahi in a very rich cream sauce and I had BBQ Pork, the meat was tender and juicy and the sauce was decadent. Joan has determined that this restaurant... More

The food was excellent, also the wine. We went, unbooked, on a Tuesday night and were given a table with no problem. The restaurant was busy and filled up further whilst we were there. Service was good, pleasant waiting staff. Downside: the music was too loud and not conducive to the dark room dining experience.

Amares Costafusion is a good example of how far Antofagasta has come in the past 3 or 4 years. Not long ago the restaurant options were general inferior, both with regard to cuisine and to service. Now there are good alternatives. Amares lives up to its booking as Trip Advisor's No. 1. The food is excellent: fresh ingredients presented in... More

Visited here twice so far with business colleagues during a three-week stay in Antofagasta. Amares certainly lived up to its reputation on both occasions. Great Peruvian pisco sour, excellent wines, wonderful ceviche concoctions, the pulpo chimichurri is to die for and I had the best lomo salteado I have ever eaten. Can only say that I hope I get to...

My chief complaint centers on the salmon canneloni, which was for some reason way too salty. Don't they sample this stuff before bringing it out? No complaints on the amares sour, their version of a pisco sour, or the wine - bottled - or coffee - illy. Service and ambience were fine but who cares when you're pasta is salty!!!?

Amares is not a big place and it’s very busy, so you better make reservation or come early. The kitchen categorized as Peruvian, but it’s not the traditional Peruvian food. The décor is modern at the atmosphere is vibrant. Our waiter spoke English and they had menus in English. We order the empanadas sampler as an appetizer and it was... More

No wonder Antares is the number one restaurant in Antofagasta according to TripAdvisor. I certainly second this rating. In my experience, this Peruvian-food restaurant would be rated 4-5 stars anywhere in the world for its tasty, fresh and creative food and cocktails; its fine (Chilean) wine selection; attentive and friendly service; and nice atmosphere. The fact that such a great... More
