Nice spot right on the plaza

You must order food with your alcoholic drinks. It might only be the the tables out the front though. The shop (draft) beer is 3,000 CLP for 0.5 L and is nice and cold! There's wifi, plenty of dogs and a bit of atmos in the early evening. The salmon salad 6,000 CLP (avo, quinoa and a big salmon... read more

We only had drinks here and ordered the obligatory food item. Beer was fine, food OK. But, location is very nice..sitting outside out of the sun and able to watch the world go by.

We chose this for the position on the square. That was good! However the food was disappointing. The starter and main courses arrived at the same time which doesn't help although the waiter did apologise. The cerviche seemed under-marinated and the lasagne was luke warm rather than hot. Not the evening we'd hoped for. I've given it 3 stars as... More

Nothing is great for food in San Padro, and that's OK. This restaurant is on the main plazza, with tables outside, proper food (actually not disappointing in quality or quantity). Prices are fair and the scenery is good.

Very pleasant outside seating in the plaza for New Year's eve but very poor food in fixed expensive menu and poor service. We did not enjoy the food but the plaza and the crowd, killing by fire the old year, were unforgettable.

We loved this restaurant! The location is one of the best in Atacama (just in front of the plaza). We ordered burgers and the 1,6 liters of beer that was really nice !!!! I recommend! This is a must view in San Pedro de Atacama.

I went here a couple of times during my stay. Friendly staff and good food. Free wifi is available. There's a nice area out the front to sit, and a courtyard through the back which is good when you need some shade.

La Plaza is in the right place. Great shade and nice spot in the middle of town, adjacent to the church. The outdoor tables are nice. We found the food good and the service marginal. The wine was good, the menu fairly diverse and they have wi Fi, if you need to catch up.

This is a great place to go for a late afternoon drink, since you can sit outside in the town square. As is often the case with the busiest locations though, the food was very average and the service was slow and poor. I would go back for a drink; I wouldn't go back for dinner.

Had the menu of the day and was pleasantly surprised by quality of food after traveling in Bolivia for a month. Later realized over priced for portion size. Difficult to get server attention, forgot to give us dessert. Charge %10 gratuity when we didn't want to tip. Went a second time for coffee and sat for 25min waiting to order... More
