We were lucky enough to get quick reservations at this very small and popular place. Enjoyed my guanaco brochette and lovely salad. Tried to go back but they open a bit late for dinner on our busy touring schedule.

Baltinache Restaurant This restaurant has interesting indigenous fusion food. The fixed price menu is a good way to get a substantial experience. The wine list is good but many of the bottles are not in stock. This is a small restaurant is small so call for a reservation.

Based on past reviews we were anxious to dine here. Place is exceedingly small (6 tables) . The tables are picnic tables and plank board seats. There was not fancy about this place and despite the size of the place , there was a significant delay in getting to place our order despite the fact that we had a reservation... More

We went there seeing the number one rating. But felt it was just another restaurant. Food was kind of home cooked. Probably this was why it is rated number one. The staff was not so friendly. They were not giving suggestions etc. Felt they wanted to avoid us without putting much effort. The food was very oily to make it... More

Really enjoyed my dinner at Baltinache and the prices were very reasonable. A bit tricky to find in the dark and the seating is limited, so book a reservation ahead of time just in case. Highly recommended!

Great restaurant. Delicious food and totally reasonably priced (actually cheap for what you get). Highly recommended during a stay in San Pedro!

This a fantastic small family run restaurant, only 6 tables, advise you to make a reservation as you won't get in if you just turn up. The location is not that hard to find, once you pass the horse stables on the right, it is just on the left with the Chilean flag flying. About 200 metres down the road... More

Based on TA we booked here - and asked our hotel to show us where to find it. It's a way down the road past Kimal and another hotel but worth the extra 200 metres. The menu has choices of 3 courses for 9000 Chilean pesos or there are good a la carte options. Small but great service and a... More
