“Not bad. But somewhat overrated.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013 via mobile

After some tapas across the street, we went there to have dinner with a friend. We found easily a good table and got good service. The food was not extremely good, but overall it was a good experience.

“Delightful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

Terrific dinner; charming facility and staff. We did not have reservations for dinner on the night we arrived in Santiago. We noticed this place, found it was high on the TripAdviser list and it was recommended by our hotel.

My wife and I shared a tasting menu. Excellent food, great wine and pleasant staff. Would not hesitate to return.

“Unbelievably Disappointing”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

Eating at this restaurant was a huge disappointment. I came here with some friends almost a year ago and had a great experience and was looking forward to coming back. We were shocked at how bad the food was. The shrimp appetizer was greasy and overdone and the shrimp/corvina carpaccio was underwhelming. No one in our party finished their entrees. The salmon was also overdone and paired with an overpowering fava bean mash with such a strong flavor you couldn't eat more than one bite. The little nubs of alleged foie gras in the ravioli couldn't stand up to the heavy cream sauce and the possibly canned mushrooms. The mote risotto had some sand in the dish and had no real taste otherwise. Sure the location is great, the atmosphere is nice and the drinks were good, but the food is so bad that those things just don't matter. There are plenty of other options in this neighborhood, Stay Away!
