Maybe our expectations were too big, or it was because we went on a Friday evening and it was very crowdy, or whatever, but we have mixed feelings about this restaurant. Positive: charmed by the name - the food was good, the service too - that was not the issue. The thing is that I think the restaurant is a bit victim of its own success: you can not make a reservation, unless (long?) in advance, and only for half of the resto - we only decided a few hours in advance, so we went on time. There they keep you waiting for half an hour until the reservations hopefully don't show up. In our case we were lucky: there was a free table - unfortunately next to the front door, and I can assure you that winters in Santiago can get pretty chilly without heating. After showing our disappointment there appeared to be another table upstairs...under the airco/heater so our noses got stuffy. I admit it was not easy for the resto either since we were 7 people. We ate a tasty meal but according to our opinion the price was also tasty (we paid more than 300 dollar for 7 people - only some of us had a dessert - which was very good!)
