“Good but not sure why it is number 1?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013 via mobile

Yes it is different because you eat at a home but so do 20 others! One of the starters was excellent and we had paella but we have had better in Spain. Ok but there must be better in Puerto Varas particular as far as speed of serving is concerned? Get a street map...it is not easy to find and be careful it is a one way street but has plenty of parking in the road.
I think it would take hours if it was busy.

“A small gem in puerto varas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

This is a OMG moment. Small, decorated intersetingly, many dun details in the way the table is set and service by one of the owners a great and enchanting moment. Food is very good and the menu is interesting in the variety and tastes. This IS spansih cuisine so expect strong flavors and garlicy olive oli and good wine. We enjoyed all our dishes (for adults), shared and compred and were VERY glad to add this as part of our holiday experience. Highly reccomended. Things like this are not easy to find.

“The best restaurant in the south of Chile”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013 via mobile

It was a pleasure to come back to this wonderful restaurant where everything on the menu is not only delicious but fresh.
The four of us ordered different dishes and every one was perfect. The two sisters not only own this fine restaurant but make you feel that you are back home.
Definetely a MUST if you are at Puerto Varas.

“Absolutely worth the ride trying to find it!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013 via mobile

At first I must admit I was a little reluctant to go to this restaurant, since it was (supposedly) far from the city center. Then, when we found out first hand that the maps show a different location of the restaurant than where it really is, my wife and I thought about going to another place. But, for some reason we insisted in finding this restaurant... and boy was it worth it!!!
Attended by its owners, a Catalán family from towns near Barcelona, this restaurant offers exquisite dishes from the Iberic Peninsula, combined with a beautiful atmosphere which makes a perfect combination.
Definitely a must while in Puerto Varas! Do not waste your time (and money) by going to the typical restaurants like La Chamaca or La Olla. Come to this hidden jewel of Puerto Varas.

“Great meal in the owners home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

On our recent visit to Puerto Varas, we looked this restaurant up after seeing it on TA. We were glad we did as we had a great time. The owner welcomed us with open arms and served great food and wine – you’re basically eating in the front room of their house! We shared antipasti and the Seafood Paella, washed down with a local chardonnay - which were all excellent. Wouldn’t hesitate in going back if it wasn’t so far from London….
