“Exceptional”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013 via mobile

This was one on the most rewarding dinner experiences we have ever had. Great service, delicious food and drinks, unique ambiance, and reasonable prices for it all. We were with a group of 6, but I would return with just my wife all the same. Seating is limited, a max of 20 or so people so call in advance for reservations. If they can only seat you for a late dinner it is worth the wait. We didn't get there until after 10:00pm, but we enjoyed every minute thereafter. If you meet Jeremy (the owner) ask him to tell his life story, he will become the most interesting man in the room.

“Excellent meal, loved the atmosphere - really pleased!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

We have lived in Chile for 2 years and eaten in A LOT of Chilean restaurants, quite frankly, we are often disappointed. This restaurant exceeded our expectations. The steak was incredibly juicy, tasty and service was excellent. This is a small restaurant - 5-6 tables - looking out onto the water. We loved the ambiance, Jeremy was very friendly and helpful. Our meal was about $56 USD for 3 of us (2 adults, 1 child) steak, salad, wonderful fresh baked bread, 2 alcoholic drinks. We come from a place in the US where this would be excessive for lunch but this is not the case in Chile. So pay the money and have a great meal. We wholeheartedly recommend this restaurant!

“Fantastic meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2012

If you want a change from all that sea food around, this is a place to come for a wonderful, perfect steak experience, done right in front of your eyes. This place is definitely worth the short bus or taxi ride, the steak lovers are going to be in heaven! Lovely atmosphere, great service.

“Pretty small, no outer indication when full”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2012 via mobile

Place is so small it is filled completely with 20 people. In this case, and due to the stairs that have to be climbed, an outer sign indicating the instances when the reataurant is full, would be greatly welcomed

“Best Steak Ever...No Lie.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2011

Probably one of the best steaks I've ever had. Go with the Lomo Vetado and you can't go wrong. The prices are very good and the atmosphere is very friendly. Probably a good idea to call ahead and get a reservation.
