Must go!

La Casona is located at the main street of San Pedro.The restaurant is nice and clean. Good service. The best dish I had was Merluza (local white fish). They prepare great empanadas (huge- to share) too! It is an unique place to go, as the chef screams loud the orders to the kitchen and waiters.

The food is fine here but nothing special. We had an empanada appetiser and 4 people could have shared it. It tasted good as did the sopapillas. My husband had the house salad which was actually exceptional but I had this sharing dish listed under appetisers - meat, egg, potatoes which was so over the top. The waitress could have... More

The food here is delicious and they do a daily specials menu that is usually an absolute bargain. Don't look elsewhere, just eat here. The restaurant can get quite smokey or too hot if you get a table by the central fire place but that is the only negative thing.

Spacious place with great food. We shared 2 plates for 3 people, and the house wine was good enough. These places are open for music groups to come in, play, collect tips and leave, and the group Amillarai that played on that night was very good - we ended up buying their CD.

Just a regular place, without identity. The service, really bad. The waiters haven't the attitude for service to the customers. There are another better places for eat.

Very poor. We ordered one plate with beef and one with pork. The beef ( supposedly 'tender' loin) was extremely tough and too raw. The pork didn't taste well. Both plates were served on an oversized bed of respectively French fries and puree. The red wine was too cold, apparently served right from the fridge. In one word: lousy

All the meals our table was served were exceptional, the wine list is excellent and it was a fantastic introduction to Chile! The sirloin steak was cooked to perfection and served with a huge plate of delicious fries, and the quoino risotto with mushrooms special was so tasty and filling. The Special which was 5000 came with a glass of... More

La Casona is a very nice place to eat in San Pedro de Atacama. The interior dining room is very elegant and the outside setting is nice as well. Food is very good, carefully made and tasty. We had the fish, and it was one of the best I had the Chile. It is not cheap (dishes are around 8000-10000... More

A restaurant with lots of atmosphere on the main street in San Pedro.The food(although not the best we had in Chile) was very good with huge portions and the staff very friendly.Loved the fire in the middle of the "outdoor" part of the restaurant.
