“Great little surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

Never really expected to come across a place like this in San Pedro. Really good service and am atmosphere that made me think of a chill out lounge in Ibiza. Service was fast and really good quality and the atmosphere was dimly lit with a nice fire place at the rear of the restaurant. There was also a live DJ playing some very chill ambient and house music just loud enough to be groovy but not to loud. Food was good though I would pass on the pizzas if I had to do it again. The salmon starter was really good though and almost worth a full meal by itself if your not hungry. Really recommend it.

“best in San Pedro Atacama”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

delicious food and extremely nice staff. Just be careful with the strawberry margheritta, it is big and I got drunk before the end of the dinner with just one glass!

There's a good choice of items in this restaurant and the use of ingredients will possibly intrigue you. Fairly quiet location and friendly staff

“Imaginative food where you might not expect it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

San Pedro is pretty much stuffed with restaurants (and hotels, tour agencies, etc), but mostly aimed at a back-packer audience, so it was a nice to find somewhere with actual gastronomic aspirations. The interior is quite plain (all white) but stylish. More importantly, the food showed real imagination e.g. I had ginger-crusted salmon on a bed of mashed potato & onions, with green curry sauce and braised pear - not a combination of flavours I would have thought of, but worked really well. The rest was just as good, and the wines were the same good quality & value Chilean wines as most places listed. Our guide book called it the best restaurant in town, and I see no reason to disagree. And the good news is that it's no more expensive than most other places in San Pedro (though SPA not cheap to start with...)
