TB is one of my favorite restaurants in La Serena. The food is always good, and the beachfront location is lovely, no matter the season. The portions are very generous.

This restaurant offered a good experience. The food was good but beware because it is quite generous. The ambience was nice and service was fair. Price was reasonable. They need to learn how to serve a pousse cafe!

Had some absolutely delicious steak here with excellent service, which is unusual in Chile. The wine selection extensive and great ambiance and view of La Serena beach. Great.
