“exceptional vinobar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

Stumbled upon this place when a friend and I were walking back to our conference venue along a charming Euro-vibe side-street following a three-hour bike tour of the city. I joked that we should rehydrate with Chilean wine, and we wandered inside for kicks. We were impressed by the atmosphere, the neat decorative touches, and the extensive wine selection. The next day, we brought some fellow delegates for a little "team building." Many flights and a main course each later (the Patagonian lamb is superb), we were deeply engaged in conversation and had lost track of time. The staff were accommodating enough to close a bit later so we could finish the last of our wine unhurriedly. I would unhesitatingly recommend this place to future visitors of Santiago!

“Full Marks for Attention to Detail and Attentiveness”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

An excellent menu from interesting and unusual tapas-like nibbles to substantial steaks complemented by wine to cover every palate and pocket. The service is excellent and personalised, and the wine cellar impressively large and diverse. Pick your timing well, and you can enjoy tastings and presentations by interesting wineries or musical soirees.

Definitely one of my favourite haunts,in a delightful barrio...

“Great Wine Experience and Great Prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

Start here for an introduction to Chilean wines! I took my boyfriend here for his birthday, and we had been in Chile for about a week. We took advantage of tasting carmeneres and cabernet savignons the first week, but at Bocanariz we were able to try so many more varieties from Chile. They had more than 100 wines to choose from and at least 30 wines by the glass (probably more).

We had 3 flights each, 2 glasses, 3 appetizers, 1 flight of Pisco and a dessert flight and with tip the total was $120 USD. This is the kind of place where you can binge and celebrate and not feel guilty about prices or you can come in for a $7 flight and good conversation. The food was good, not the best I've had, but I plan on going back on a fuller stomach for the wine!

“An amazing experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

The place itself was very nice, with a mixture of tradition, class and quick wit. The waiters are by far the most helpful I've ever met, and they went out of their way to make you feel comfortable.
The menu is quite different, where wines are the dominant feature of the meal, and they have a wide array of snacks and main courses to go with them. Everything is classified according to flavours, and waiters are experts at recommending wines that go with certain meals. They also have wine tasting as an option, where they bring three varieties and they explain their attributes. They've got hundreds!
Finally, both wines and dishes are very affordable. I couldn't believe the prices! AND if you really like a certain wine, you can take a bottle with you at market price!
If you like very good wine and are in for something different, this is definitely the place to go in Santiago!!
