Normal food and drinks for elevated prices

Food and drinks are totally OK but as it is directly at the plaza you have to pay more than usual for it.

Having walked past this place many times during our week-long stay in San Pedro de Atacama - we decided to give it a try, as it always seemed busy. I ordered a Lasagne that was obviously re-heated in a microwave, as it was barely warm in the middle. It tasted decent, but not fresh (compared to other places in town...... More

It's nice place for having a dinner on the central square!The portion is quite big but its usual for Chile!Besides,it's tasty! The atmosphere at night is relaxing and very apropriate for keeping conversation with friends.The prices are quite high 7-10 000 pesos for one person!

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...
