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

Arrived with a few friends and sat at one of the gorgeous tables outside in the square. Yet, 20 minutes later we still had no menus and then had to go to ask for them! When our order was eventually taken, our waitress was surley and sullen, and clearly didn't want to be there. The food came quickly and was... More

We encountered the rudest waiters of any restaurant we have every been to at La Plaza. They were extremely dismissive and after taking our drink order were reluctant to let us order any food. The waiters were completely unwilling to make any changes to our orders and made no apologies for it - having food allergies I was unable to... More

This restaurant is great for an afternoon drink, it's on the Plaza de Armas which is a real sun trap, a great place for people watching over a cold beer (great) or a Pisco Sour (not so good). The food was very average, our table ordered chicken enchiladas (a little bland and too small), Hamburger (ok) and tapas (ok). Would... More
