Yummy!

We had dinner here and were not disappointed. My daughter ordered the salmon with pears five ways and it looked like a gourmet meal. My husband and I both ordered the pizza which was good. If I returned, I would definitely go with the recommendation of the waiter and try something more daring... read more

Nice setting, excellent service, meals beautifully presented and pretty tasty too. Had our best bottle of wine in Chile at this restaurant.

The food was tasteless and pricy, and there was no flexibility at all. No option for altering the menu slightly, even for extra pay. Poor service too. Have had better food in the most primitive restaurants in Bolivia. Go somewhere else!!

Looks great from the outside, funky lighting and cool stone benches to sit on. It's also quite expensive. We had a sharing plate of seafood for starter which was terrible! Bland and chewy pieces of seafood served on what seemed like cold, damp polenta? Not good. My main wasn't bad but it was weird. Salmon with spun sugar, their curry... More

The Restaurant has a good atmosphere, with a nice and clean decoration. The entree, centolla (typical seafood) was great! But the main dish, merluza (white fish) was just ok. The dessert was good, it was a selection of 5 different ones.

We were booked in here as part of the compensation for our hotel being overbooked. We had been promised the best restaurant in town - if it is, I fear for the others. The service was passable, but only the chef spoke English when we were there. The food was, likewise, passable - but hardly exciting. Later on we went... More

Came recommended by our travel agents, and we were not disappointed. Good food, well presented, and served by affable waiters. Reasonable prices. We would recommend it.

The atmosphere of the place is nice and the staff is friendly. However; the menu is limited and you are good as long as you make a local food choice such as ceviche (otherwise don´t expect something spectacular, for instance Japanese meat balls!?).

We just wanted a light lunch -Blanco supplied the answer and we ordered the Mediterranean salad. They arrived contained within huge iceberg lettuce leaves -lovely presentation & even better to eat.Nothing fancy but both presentation & taste were very good -as was the service. An interesting menu but unfortunately we never made it for dinner.
