Worth the 5 minute walk from the centre.

We found the restaurant based on the directions from another reviewer below and we we're delighted with the 3 courses for 9000 pesos. Wish we had gone here sooner, generous portions and a great value beautiful meal. Only 5 minutes walk away from the main restaurant strip and well worth it.

We heard many good things about this ("indigenous fusion" food) place, so went for dinner before leaving San Pedro. Sophisticated long names from the waiter explaining the menu sounded interesting and appealing (presentation was also delicate, good). As a couple, we ordered all options available (2 different starters, 2 different main c. and 2 different sweets). The starters: vegetables soup... More

This is definitely the best meal we've had in SPA! A welcome relief from the other run of the mill serviceable restaurants! This is a lovely small restaurant, a little hard to find, but definitely worth it. Full of character : menu is hand written and has 2 options from each of starter, main and dessert. This set menu is... More

What an amazing little place, a bit hard to find but what a treat. We had Fettuccine with salmon (and fungi?) the way Nona could not make it any better, Gnocchi came with the same sauce and Quinoa salad. Vino is mainly from small new vineyards and our Camenérè was very mellow.

Excellent food. Menu changes every day and consist of 2 appetizers, 2 main dishes & 2 desserts to choose from so it's prepare/cooked fresh. They open for dinner only. Is a little hard to find. Look for the big chilean flag next to a double gate patio entrance. It has a rusty decoration but warm & charming. We ate there... More

We thought this tiny restaurant was good value, buzzy atmosphere, service good but no English but we managed. There was a set menu with a small choice for each of the 3 courses, yes it is written on a piece of paper, but it changes frequently so that was ok with us, this is not fine dining.. The starter was... More

We went on recommendation from trip advisor and thought the food was pretty average for the money. You receive a sheet of paper with the choices for 2 daily appetizers,dinners and desserts. The owner/ server was not the friendliest. He did not discuss the menu with us but did with other customers. We chose tilapia which was ok. For the... More

A very cozy place, with good food and reasonable prices. We went for lunch and they have a menu with entry, main course and dessert. Everything was good and we have spent a very nice time there.
