Great for people watching and good coffee

Each day we would start with mid morning coffee here, watch the activity around the square then decide which adventure we were going to have. Service was good, atmosphere great and generally very enjoyable location.

Despite the number of restaurants and cafes in SPDA there aren't many with seating with an outside view. We came in here 5 times- a couple of times just for a glass of wine at lunchtime, and then ended up buying a jug ( good value by the way) and having some food. We also came in for an evening...

I ordered a hamburger and Sonia had enchiladas. This was the worst meal of our trip. My burger came (eventually - "this is Chile") and was not even lukewarm. Sonia had 2 small enchiladas with some kind of meat covered in liquid cheese - revolting. I sent my burger back as I was frightened it wasn't cooked properly. It was... More

Nice Restaurant/Bar/Cafe at the Main Plaza, tables under the sun/umbrellas or at the sade or in the inner yard. Nice food for breakfast, lunch and cold beer. Other reviews mentioned for slow service, you have to accustome to the laid back atmosphere of San Pedro and go with their time, you are not at NYC running for work

I'm accustomed to bad service in Chile, but these guys went out of their way. Given it's prime location, they are of course going to attract a large tourist crowd, and maybe that's a hindrance to them, I don't know. We were not there at peak time particularly, but they were trying to rush us off the table. After we... More

This is a lovely spot  on the main square with a view to the Church on one side, and the oldest house in San Pedro de Atacama on the other.   Their salmon/quinua salad is excellent and my first choice on both visits.  This and a desert (go over to Adobe and have their Chocolate Mousse) is a perfect lunch.

La Plaza is located at the main plaza of the town, almost next to the church. House salad without taste. Pizza - on the frozen base (likely). There are better spots in San Pedro de Atacama...

Unlike others, I would rate this restaurant highly. service was prompt and friendly (we did have a spansih speaker in our party). We ate at lunch time off of the set menu. The food was well cooked, very tasty and good value. I would not hesitate to go back.

If you are ablw to order some. I've been three times to the La Plaza. The first time I got a very good Lomo saltado. However I noticed the slow service. I waited for the bill more than half an hour. The other two times, I visited that place, I wasn't this lucky. Both times, the kitchen was already closed,... More

We wandered in to this place on the plaza and have to say service was slow, but not really rude, just haphazard. If you stick to beer and lunch it is a great place to sit with excellent pizzas and sanwishes (their spelling). We did this twice and were very happy with our food - salad, Atacama chicken sanwish, and... More
