Tasty food with a beautiful view

this cafe is right on the beach so has a wonderful view. It had a surf shack vibe and sold lots of sandwiches, wraps and empanadas. The milkshakes were also incredible and made my 6 year old light up with happiness. The food was fresh and tasty. It was a little pricey for what it was, but you... read more

I happened upon Cafeteria Poisson with a friend during a long day of waiting on the beach for our overnight bus. It was the best discovery!!! The partially enclosed patio was the perfect temperature, and the beautiful view of the ocean was relaxing and lovely. We ended up spending several hours here, ordering coffee, lunch empanadas (camaron and queso--delicious and... More

We visited this cafe by accident. We were looking for somewhere to eat but it was a Sunday evening and everywhere was shut! We ended up ordering a wrap and a salad from here. Expecting cafe standards/portions but it was actually really good food. My boyfriend also ordered a piece of the chocolate cake, it looked too amazing to resist!

We went here looking for a nice health lunch with vegetarian options (not always easy in La Serena). We were pleasantly surprised by this cafe-restaurant operated by the Poisson surfing school right in the middle of the beach - fifteen minutes south of the lighthouse. The sandwiches looked great but we each had huge salads - very un-chilean - with... More
