“Amazing seafood tabla!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2012

The best seafood dinner we have had in Santiago thus far. Good happy hour drink prices. Mostly pisco/sour type happy hour drinks. Whiskey sour was great. Ordered the mediterranean tabla "sampler". It was 13,000 pesos and worth it. Gastronomic sex. Ambiance is antique yet clean and classy. Downstairs seating more intimate and upstairs has a smoking section in addition to a few private rooms available with reservations. Connected is an old barber shop. Worth visiting!!!

“dining in a museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2012

The few times you can eat out in a museum are rare. This hairy museum hosts a very nice restaurant with friendly people and good food. Try the mediaterian platters (table) at the beginning. The Atun was delicious and the wine up to standard. And if you get bored, just look around and enjoy yourself.

“Must see place but not necessary to eat dinner.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2012

Yes you have to go there, it is a bit off the beaten track but certainly worth it. Expensive food items, wine average price and great selection. Clean place, terrific service (overwhelming if you speak English and are a tourist). It is a very special and nice place to spent an evening, food is very good and interesting. Not necessary to have a meal (like Dinner) many around us had appetizers and drinks or sandwiches - at dinner time. Plates are not large but very good. Plan on spending $US 40 per person. Spent ti,e sitting around and watching people. Many locals or Spanish speaking visit there. So it is not a tourist trap.

“Definitely a place worth visiting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2012

This place has incredible decor and great food! They have many different variations of the pisco sour, the most popular being chocolate sour. They have lots of big tables for big parties, we had about 10 with us.

“Comer y entretenerse (Eat and have fun)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2012

Nice decoration and good food. Try the "Chocolate sour" and the seafood is great. Even better is having a hair cut first and then go and eat something fun.
