We went for dinner, it was overall nice, even though the risotto was a little overcooked... The place is decorated nicely, and the service is good.

This is simply my favourite place to go in La Serena. The top quality service has no equal. Food is always fresh and timely served, having a excellent mixture of seafood and meats. The seafood appetizers are really great!! They also serve the best "pisco sour" and "mojito cubano".

I was there with two of my N. American colleagues and a Chilean host. Being so close to the water I wanted seafood. This restaurant did not disappoint. We ordered different seafood dishes for each of us to try. The fish was excellent and fresh. (Trust me...I catch my own seafood, I know fresh) The shellfish was well prepared and... More

This is one of the fancier restaurants on the Avenida del Mar. The decoration and ambiance is very nice. As usual for the area, the menu is mostly about fish and meat.

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.

The building is nice, big, fancy, right on the beach. That's for the good part. The first smell that entered our nostrils was the petroleum from the heaters. Yep, not even food. Nevertheless, it was pretty cold and asked for ours to be turned on, there was no tank. You'd think the waiter would go and get a new one... More

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.
