Really lovely food at a reasonable price. Our hotel suggested this and booked for us which you must do as there are only five tables. Three courses and a bottle of wine for under 20 quid each! We had some type of lamb which was excellent and tender. My only suggestion is they should turn down the... read more

The restaurant is in many of the interestinf dark streets of San Pedro. Was recommended by Acamarachi tours and their suggestion was perfect. A friendly atmosphere and a unique decoration makes this restaurant very special. The chef, Marta Neculpan, makes a very interesting fusion between the Mapuche and Atacameño. In their dishes meats and fishes seasoned with local products as... More

This restaurant aspires to be different, with dishes inspired by a fusion of local tastes and European cuisine. It isn't always successful, but it is worth a visit.

A little of the beaten path, but worth walking the few extra blocks. A very small restaurant so I would recommend having a reservation. We opted for the 3-course menu (I believe this changes daily depending on what's available) and everything was delicious and well presented. If I returned to San Pedro, I would definitely return to this restaurant.

This place was really good. The waiter was a bit odd, and he kept bringing (and immediately opening) the wrong beer. But it's worth it. The food felt located deeply in the Atacama ingredients and history, and it was all very tasty. The menu was good every time.

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

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.

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
