“'Mr John'”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2014

We found this restaurant the first night we arrived in Puerto Varas and we had to wait for a table for about 10 mins. Be assured it was well worth the wait. The waiter helped with our menu and wine choices due to our lack of Spanish. Excellent choices we had Salmon TarTar and Squid then Southern Brea and Golden Conga Eel with chips and salad. The food was so good that we went a second time on our third and last evening after having a terrible meal somewhere else in the town on our 2nd evening. This time having Ceviche and Octopus in Black Ink then Atlantic Salmon & Hake with Spicy Mash Potato and Salad, again all cooked perfectly.
The owner was a lovely man too who happened to love Rugby like my husband, John, and chatted for a while on both evenings. Trust us if you like fish and want excellent, efficient, friendly service and value for money too then make sure that this restaurant is on your 'must do list in Puerto Varas.

“Good plus”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

This restaurant is nicely located across from the lake and offers a short sea-based menu. Service may be slow depending on time of arrival but fish is fresh and full of flavour. Lobster and salmon based dishes are a must. We also enjoyed the hake served with capers and in a brown sugar and butter sauce.

“Wonderful Seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014 via mobile

Wow! This would be a great restaurant anyplace. The octopus, which I eat often, was as good as the best Greek restaurants in New York - my highest standard. Fresh, tender, flavorful with a great sauce. The Conger eel, which I had not had before, was also superb, as was the sea bass. Excellent beer and wine list to match the food. I particularly liked the Kross Golden Ale, which I would love to be able to buy at home. And the restaurant has a great view looking over Lago Llanquihue with the spectacular Volcan Osorno as a backdrop. What a find!
