“View is great but food is expensive”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

This restaurant is on the top of a hill in Santiago. It is a bit hard to find... our cab driver had to stop multiple times to ask for directions. The view from the restaurant is pretty amazing. The food, however, was not that impressive. My boyfriend ordered a salad that was just a few pieces of iceberg lettuce with dressing and they messed up my order so many times I didn't know what I ordered.

“Don´t go because of the view...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2012

We went because of the view ...
The service was very disappointing, uncaring waiter. They made a mistake with a our salads. And when I asked for a ceasar salad, the waiter told me it was only lettuce, chicken, cheese and crutons, but no dressing. I asked why? He said because the owner wanted it that way... A ceasar salad without ceasar dressing?! The lamb was raw...and the dishes are really small and pretentious. There were flies around and ...I asked two times to take down the air conditioning ...and nothing.
Do not go because of the view. Go to Caramano and then drive the hill up, just say you are going to the restaurant. Then you´ll have a really nice dinner and the view.

“Excelent food, reasonable prices.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2012

Well, the view pays for everything. It contains a wonderful view, with great food, great variety of wines and types foods (although I don´t underestand a lot about wines, they have a huge 'carte de vins'! I have eaten the beef with sauce reduced in whine, and like anywhere else in Santiago, if you like Salmon, choose one. Very nice...
