a gem in the Atacama desert

La Estraka is located on the busy part of Caracoles, and can't be missed since a waiter outside literally highjacks you and spins a fairy tale about the great food they serve inside and won't stop talking until you step in.

Worst experience I ever had in San Pedro. I will not talk about the food -normal course within the standard of San Pedro . The problem is the lack of preparation of the attendants . Besides inattentive , exchanging requests ( I ordered a small coffee and they brought great ) , forgetting to bring order but not forgetting to... More

Some of the items on this menu gave me pause, but the menu of the day was really good! A little pricier than I would have liked, but that seems to be the norm for most restaurants in San Pedro. If there's an option to have sopa de choclo, go for it!! That was the appetizer for the menu of... More

The place is lovely and the food quite tasty. They gave us Pisco as a courtesy and a starter of meet and mayo on a bread that was amazing. I ordered the equatorian shrimp risotto, grat choice.

I couldn't recommend this restaurant highly enough. Excellent pisco sours and delicious food. While I waited for my canelloni I was given a complimentary appetizer that was excellent. Service was second to none. I wish I was in town longer so I could try more of the menu. And of course a few more pisco sours.

If you want to try some fine high cuisine in San Pedro de atacama, this is definitely the place to come. They have international dishes. From Peruvian, to Norwegian food. The atmosphere is really nice and the place is wide and spacious! They have a wide list of wines, though you can find better pisco sour in other places in... More

the restaurant is very nice, good tables and quite wide. The wine list is very good and excellent Pisco. The dishes are individual and well serve a person, I had the ceviche that was divine and I was well satisfied. The desserts worth it, the service is very good and attentive.

La Estaka was our favorite restaurant while visiting San Pedro!! We visited twice (once for lunch & once for dinner). We were very pleased with everything we ordered. There was live music during our dinner. Such a cool atmosphere with amazing food. (Try the chicken curry served in a coconut!)
