This is more of a family style restaurant that prides itself on the food which was spectacular. The wait staff was very helpful and efficient and service was excellent.

“The best in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2012

I stayed in Puerto Varas for 3 days and ate at 3 different restaurants.Undoubtely this is the one! The seafood - Paila al pil pil , full of shrimps fresh and tender, empanadas and tiramisu are divines.The price is fair.No wonder the place is full of locals.It´s not far from city center. In daytime you can walk by the lake (20min) and at night take a taxi or a city bus.

“Good but overhyped”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2012

La Olla is a very good restaurant, but it isn't that much better than the other seafood restaurants in Puerto Varas.

Despite this, since it is described as "the best seafood in Chile", it gets packed. Really packed. So make a reservation a couple of days in advance.

The staff somehow feel that they are making you a favor by letting you eat at their restaurant, which only feels fair while you are eating one of the empanadas. The rest of the food is good but not really something you'll remember for a long time.
