Very nice food and chilled ambiance

We tried this restaurant on the recommendation of our hotel, I had a local dish which was a sort of crab pie, it was really tasty and ticked all the boxes for what I fancied, this is one of the few restaurants that does not serve over-sized portions, which made a nice change. We were given Pisco... read more

The Thai chicken soup was so delicious and comforting I had to go back and have it a second time! My boyfriend had the burger (amazing) on our first visit and margarita pizza (nice) on the second. They have an extensive drinks menu. It's probably not cheap for San Pedro but for what you get it's very reasonably priced. The... More

Last night so I tried blanco, ate in the back, the front a bit sterile. Salmon was simply outstanding, potato and pear fabulous. A bit expensive but for a special meal go for it!

We had a very tasty meal here... One of the better ones of our trip. Crispy quinoa stuffed with slow-cooked beef, with carrot and ginger puree... Yum! Efficient and friendly service too.

Three pepper tuna and salmon with ginger were phenomenal. Good wine selection. Their sampler plate was so big and delicious we didn't have room for our main course.

The restaurant is definitely one of the best options in SPA. The food is excellent and affordable (not cheap). They have like a small in-house DJ and the music can be annoying if you (like me) don't like too much noise when having a romantic dinner. It is worth the visit.

Fast service, good food and atmosphere. One of the best in town. We had the hamburger, and the salmon, both good. The marguerita pizza for the kids was the best we had during the trip in Chile.

Due to a slight level of intoxication my experience was a slight blur but I do recall sitting on the back patio where there was a great dj, fire going in the pit and the most delicious burger! We still talk about that burger to this day!!

The restaurant is beautiful and modern. It's cool being in a small village in the middle of the Atacama Desert at a trendy restaurant. I have got there twice, both times the food was amazing and the service very good. I suggest start with a Rica Rica Pisco, very smelly. The food both, the crab lasagna and the Thai Soup... More

Although the food in Chile is famously underwhelming compared to the its South American neighbors, Blanco brought a refined trendy setting and some actual flavor. It is pricey, which is to say it is basically priced the way a similar place would be in the US. Definitely worth checking out when you've tired of the local fare in Atacama.
