Description: In the heart of Providencia in 2010, Bistromania was born: a simple idea in a welcoming environment mixing old-time gastronomy with the great French classics. By bringing a slice of France to Chile, our goal was to conquer Chilean tastebuds and to take travelling French palates back home with our gourmet dishes in the bistrot style.Gaetan Eonet and his team invite you to their world, a simple space that reminds you of home, to discover or return to those traditional flavors...Welcome and... bon appetit !

“Good to blend with the locals and the food is great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

Le Bistro is very well located and it seemed that most of the clientes were locals having lunch there with work friends or clientes. It is a diferente culture here is South América and as well as in Brazil they do enjoy their lunch time properly.
The food was well cooked, presented and very tasteful. I had a fillet that was perfectly cooked with a poivre sauce and my wife ordered trout which was very good as well. I don't think it is a place for a romantic dinner, but it serves perfectly well if you are exploring the área during the day.

“Delicious food and helpful staff and an outstanding wine list with many available by the glass”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013 via mobile

A great restaurant and probably the best meal we had in Chile. Very helpful table service and the floor staff all spoke excellent English. We decided to sample a range of Chilean wine by the glass and the staff were very helpful - I would give this restaurant top marks for its wine list - range and price .

“Traditional French food in Santiago”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

Le Bistrot is a great French restaurant in the heart of Providencia. It is a busy and cosy place nestled among other restaurants in a small courtyard off busy Av. Providencia. It has a traditional French menu with a wide selection of appetizers and mains. The carpaccio of beef and the goat cheese and onion tart are excellent. The entrecote with a selection of sauces, the scallops St. Jacques and the tartare are fantastic. The service is very good and attentive. The prices are quite reasonable. This restaurant does not disappoint!

“An excellent find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013 via mobile

The food scene in Santiago is rather disappointing, so we were incredibly pleased to find this gem of a French cafe in Providencia. Excellent food, polite service (also uncommon in Santiago) and reasonable prices ensure that we'll be frequent patrons. Voila!
