Probably the best restaurant in Serena /Coquimbo

Really enjoyable meal here in the evening. Great spot overlooking the beach in La Serena. Food was excellent. Famous for their steaks. Highly recommended.

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".

Tololo Beach is a fisherman palace, with eclectic decoration of natural shapes and classic details. Service is correct and efficient; cuisine is simple and effective in authentic flavors (try the tuna steak to get impressed and satisfied). A good experience at all.

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. There were five of us and all were happy with our meals. I had a Risotto, however, which was presented in the menu as a main dish that... More

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.
