The food was very good. Nice safe atmosphere. I was there on a Thursday afternoon and it was not crowded but it was starting to fill up and later there is music with a young crowd I guess they stay until 1:00 or later. It is definitely one of the better places to go in Santiago It is not... read more

This place is very good as a restaurant. The bar is very nice and lively and there's karaoke on Sundays and Thursdays. I was disappointed with the chicken wings that I ordered as appetizers, but the chorizo in wine sauce was great as well as the mofongo with "longaniza" and the steak with Roquefort cheese sauce.

I would highly recommend this place. Great food, service and music. A must for all interested in having a good time even during the week. On weekends this place is the one we visit at least once a month.

Ahi Bar is fantastic..great menu & Very affordable. I love the fast and friendly service. I love going to this restaurant on a weekday to have their delicious picadera. The place gets packed on the weekend. I would highly recommend it. I will never stop going since my boyfriend proposed here ... They did a great job helping him!!!!

It's a nice place. Food wise, it's ok ... But you couldn't really call it a restaurant. Atmosphere is ok too. But the most amazing thing is the "no smoking" on the terrace side. So really, you have to leave the perimeter because they don't allow smoking on the grounds (even though it's not indoors). Comic

Very popular place, mostly during the weekends. The food is good and the prices are affordable. The music sometimes can be too loud, but we are in Dominican Republic where there are only two positions on the volume buttons: "Off" and "Very loud". It is located behind the Monument, in an area with lots of bars and restaurants. TMHO, it's... More

I loved the service and the food was not very expensive. We enjoyed the atmosphere. I forgot the name of the Desert because it was in Spanish but I have never tasted a dish like this before and it had a very sweet taste. One of my friends from my company said it tasted like rock-candy in a way
