I went here last night with a group of 3 people. The restaurant looks really sweet and charming and there's a nice atmosphere. (The waiters wearing captains uniforms is perhaps a bit much). The food was quite good, but nothing amazing. I had the sole with saffron sauce and it was fresh, but very rich and not very flavourful.
The biggest issue I have with this restaurant are the sneaky waiters. Due to our Spanish being quite bad, they kind of bamboozled us into this really expensive starter - $100. We thought we were ordering one thing, but then this crazy tourist-y dish with king crab and all the bells and whistles came out.
They were really pushy in general, trying to make suggestions of the most expensive dishes on the menu, etc. When we didn't want to have a dessert and ordered the bill, the same waiter actually came after 5 minutes going... uh... are you sure you don't want a dessert? Seriously!
They even have this guy going from table to table playing the guitar and then asking for money. In my opinion, if you're in an expensive restaurant, the restaurant should pay for the entertainment instead of having the customers pay for it.
Overall, we were disappointed, because it's difficult to relax and enjoy yourself when there was a constant stream of waiters harassing you.
The overall bill came to 270 USD without tip for 4 people. We ordered: 1 big starter to share, 4 mains, 4 piscos, 2 side dishes and 1 bottle of wine.
The food was only OK and does not justify that price tag, in Santiago there are way better restaurants for a fraction of the cost.
