Ambiance: Kukaramacara Country Bar and Restaurant (the official name) is a two-story, quasi-open-air restaurant, as it has one side with open windows, which gives you a spectacular view into the heart of Santiago nightlife, and the beautiful Monumento a los Héroes de la Restauración. The restaurant was very clean, and the bathrooms were immaculate, in part thanks to a very... More

I went with my husband to have lunch, and our server (Manuel) was very helpful. we had a great time, and enjoined the ambient. The food was DELICIOUS!!!!! and the restaurant director visited our table and asked how was everything. We had a few beers with some friends and a great time overall. Looking forward to go back.

This is a tourist trap and for those who want to throw away money. The food was bad and the service wasn't much better. There are to many people trying to sell you something.....

I agree with the other reviewers -it is a great location just across from the monument. The prices are also high by local standards. I was disappointed with the grilled seafood platter. The white fish, shrimp and lobster tail were very good. The rest of the seafood on the platter was terrible.it was way overcooked and rubbery. It was difficult... More

The place is quite nice, the food is OK but overprized. A few years ago, the servings were generous but they reduced them, while raising the prices. Beware, if you want wine, the glasses of wine are round 200 Pesos (US$ 4.50) with taxes.

My husband and I stopped in and had breakfast here. There is no actual menu for breakfast but they cooked up some very nice vegetarian omelettes for us with slices of garlic baguette on the side. They were happy to create what we wanted!

I love that the waiters are all dressed in cowboy attire. They are very attentive and very knowledgeable about the foods and drinks in the menu.

The restaurant is fun and the waiters are very nice. The food is a hit or miss. My sister had a seafood soup that was delicious. I had Bechameth Stuffed Chicken Breast that was over cooked, dry, and swimming in sauce. Best view of the Monument is on the second floor.
