“Ignore the few negatives being written, this place is a POSITIVE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

Food is awesome and service is wonderful. Went there with Party of 4 and no one had a bad dish (Conger Eel, 2 Sea Bass and Beef Medallion). The Eel was a bit salty but still very good. We asked and received a personal tour of the restaurant (it was by the owner too). Special rooms down stairs in the wine cellars allow for small private gatherings (weddings, etc.). The "sea" décor everywhere is awesome. Walk in the front door and a whale made of sea weed with lights inside greets you hanging over the bar, the back counter is shaped like a ship but you don't see that until you go upstairs, the lights upstairs are soft and arranged to follow a wooden map of Chile' the length of the room, the sinks outside the bathrooms are made of wood in a glass-enclosed area, etc etc etc. All that created a unique and wonderful dining experience!

“Great starters and wine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

Start with a pico sour - one of the best one can find in Chile. Excellent starters, notably king crab and abalone. The mains are not overwhelming, but fresh and good, including the signature dish, maï maï conger eel. Extensive wine list, includiong some very good Chileans. The décor is warm and friendly, and service is attentive.

“Ritzy place for a special night out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

We went here on the spur of the moment, so the place was packed with no seats. Ended up at the ceviche bar in the back and had a great night.(Make reservations if you want a table) The prices are steep but the seafood was great. The ceviche chef took a liking to us and gave us a couple of freebie samples. He joined in when a fit of the giggles overcame us and even took out picture. The place is a bit noisy but the decor is nice and service was very good.

“Excellent in Every Way”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

I used to go to the old restaurant before it burned down and thought it was great. The new building is wonderful. The seafood was very fresh and the service excellent. I wish I had gone there two nights instead of gone on a recommendation somewhere else the night before.

“Seafood plus”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

I had a business lunch here and was very happy with the food and service. The ceviche cama corvina was very good and large enough to share. I had the conger and it was very good. Nice wide open space inside and the service is very attentive. Lunch bill with no alcohol, but with deserts was just over $100 USD
