“Friendly, good food, good wifi, great salmon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

We spent a couple of hours here waiting for our transfer to Natales, and it was lovely. We had a nice, inexpensive bottle of Carmenere, and good, large salad, and salmon to die for. We needed to do some onward planning and the wifi was solid. Plus the waiter (Joaquim) was really friendly and we had a good chat with him.

“Good food...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

but I've only eaten there once so it's hard to judge. I do remember they were generous with their house cab and it was tasty.

“unedible”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

My wife and daughter and i recently had dinner at Jekus. The restaurant itself has a very nice ambience and is clean. My wife and i ordered the lamb, my daughter the salmon. We ordered the lamb med rare, they forgot my wifes, mine was overcooked and unedable, a knuckle with no decernable meat, and a couple of overcooked wafer thin ribs. I ordered a bottle of wine, they came back and said they were out but showed me a different grape variety same producer, I found out it was twice as expensive when i got the bill

Very nice place with excellent food and atmosphere. Service is a little bit slow; but what you get is great.
Entrance, stairs, the big flag on the wall; tables and chairs, colours....
