“Food ok, lousy ambiance”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

The food in this restaurant is ok and you get value for money. The ambiance however is lousy. Big, noisy and slow staff. So if you come to feed: great. If you want to dine: go to Afrigonia!

“Sencillo”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

Famous for have typical chilean food. And that's what it is. Good products, with good flavors, but nothing special. A simple full meal in a simple place, were the T.V. was on all the time news and soap operas. Terrible, slow service. We had one waiter attending around 10 tables. Good prices. If you eat whatever go there.

“The place for Patagonia Lamb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

If you are looking for the local delicacy - Patagonia Lamb, properly cooked - this would be THE place. It is not as touristy as other places located at the center of town. The restaurant also has many different dishes, but Patagonia lamb is its specialty. It has stuff that can reasonable understand English and they take credit cards. Just keep in mind that it may take some time to prepare the lamb (the meat is cooked over the open wood fire). However, the wait is worth it. Order the lamb, seafood soup, salad, and a couple of bottles of the local vine as the recovery dinner after the trip to Torres Del Paine.
