“Good but price is completely overated”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

Goog location, good atmosphere, good food, but the price is completely overated, there are a lot of places where you can eat with the same or even better experience for a little more than half the money you will spend here.

“Good ceviches”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

Lamar makes some of the best ceviches in Santiago and this is what I´d go there for. The food is also good but I haven´t had anything that would give me a WOW feeling, It doesn´t dissapoint.

“Not a fan.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2012

We have eaten here three times. The first time was as a couple, arriving at 8pm on a Friday night. We were pretty much the only customers. It was busy by the time we left, at around 10pm.

First visit - didn't really know what to order as our Spanish was limited. Ordered some fish dish, wasn't that impressed as friends had raved about the seafood. Wine was recommended by the waiter and he chose a good one.

Second visit - With friends who are foodies, who speak Spanish and had been there before. Still underwhelmed to be honest. Food just wasn't that good.

Third visit - With a group of 8. One person at the table had to send her fish back as it wasn't cooked in the middle. I ordered the risotto and it was so ridiculously oversalted I couldn't finish it. The waiter took my plate, I told him it was too salty and he didn't reply.

Underwhelmed and won't go back, I don't recommend it to friends. I don't really like the atmosphere either.

“Outstanding - $9 dollar pisco”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2012

Great place. Fantastic. Food. Service (OK). Then...all else considered...Pisco at $9 per glass....they take advantage of that. But the food...the Jalea for two...the sushi and the ceviche...goodness knows where you eat.
Take the time to go with time and enjoy. You will find that for $100 USD for two you will be delighted. Enjoy!
