Nice dinner for two near the fireplace

A very nice place for dinner in San Pedro, while it doesn't rate a 5, the food was tasty and creative. We had the shrimp curry (lots of mushrooms?) and also the seafood cannelloni. Obviously all the seafood was previously frozen, we are in the desert, but still good. The service was good and... read more

The whole experience was very good. The place decoration is original and charming. We never expected to have this kind of restaurant in the middle of the desert. We ordered one salad and two different dishes of salmon. All three were excellent, beautifully presented and delicious. Is not a low cost restaurant, but it's worth it.

Best decoration among the restaurants in San Pedro. Typical staff, not concentrated and slow. Nice food, best salmon in the three forms that I've Tried in the table, go for it!

La Estaka was already on our list of recommended places ot eat in San Pedro - but it was their dinner set menu that drew us in one evening. We were so glad we stopped as it turned out to be one of the best meals we had in San Pedro. The restaurant atmosphere is charming and we enjoyed a... More

This was by far the best place we found to eat in San Pedro and we came back a second time with some friends, who also loved it. The menu is far more interesting than most restaurants in Chile and the food is professionally prepared and presented - and really tasty! The best deal is their meal of the day... More

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

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. He was friendly and funny though, and in the end I was happy we gave in and had dinner... 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
