“Beautiful Beachfront Grill”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

Very cool vibe and delicious, unpretentious menu. Highly recommend the calamari (possibly the best I've ever tasted) and any of the cocktails!

“Perfect Beach Hangout, Anytime of Day (or Night)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

La Susana makes Jose Igancio the incredible place that it is. We spent a little over a week in Jose Ignacio over new years and had almost all of our meals at La Susana - it's that good.
Right on the beach, in the daytime its a rustic, relaxed version of st tropez's club 55. Order a "red hot" caipiroska, a la susana special creation and quite possibly the best drink in town (crushed fresh berries, sugar, Christiania vodka and Tabasco for a kick), and fresh sushi or the la susana quinoa salad with figs, and relax in the large seats in the sun. With access to the beach, take your caipi down for a dip and some sun. Sunsets are particularly beautiful to watch on La Susana's beach boardwalk; grab a snack or drink at the outdoor bar and watch nature's spectacular show... rest assured that you have the best view in town. At night, La Susana takes on a slightly more sophisticated feel. The menu still boasts the classics that make it so special - salads, cheeseburgers, spaghetti - but the candle lit ambiance and VIK wine ups the ante. Some nights, the house DJ will be playing cool beats on the beach patio that's surrounded by fire pits, a perfect backdrop as you grab a couch, dig your feet in the sand, and enjoy homemade pistachio ice cream under the stars.
One more note, the staff at La Susana makes it the extra special place that it is. With a collective memory unmatched anywhere in town, they will remember you and make sure your time with them is well worth your while.

“Incredible Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

La Susana just opened and it bound to be a hit in Jose Ignacio. Great and growing vibe, incredible location and wonderful service. I spent multiple afternoons here moving from the beach to lunch and back, bleeding into cocktail hour with an incredible sunset!
