Bahía Inglesa is not that big and this place seems to be the best in town. Food is good, but beware of the rude waiters. We went here three times (because of limited other options and the food quality) and once, when we wanted to pay, the guy just threw the card machine on the table. DIY apparently? And still... More

Good place, very comfortable viewing the ocean. The food incredible. The "Barranquilla" fish totally recommended. And very nice people attending you.

You need a sense of humor to get on with the waiter. He is adorable, period. About the food, that is of course the most important: perfect!

the location is pleasant and the food adequate, however the whole experience was made unpleasant by a rather hostile server who only grudgingly and abruptly would half answer our questions. (hablamos español y inglés)

Nice place at the 'sea promenade'. We tried the Ostiones pil pil and the Lasagne de mariscos. Both were excellent. They do decent Pisco Sours too. Good views to the sea.

Even though it's winter time and low season there was still quite a crowd at this restaurant. We had great entrees which were huge and made us doubt if we needed a main course. We did have one and it was great. Risotto was superb and full of fresh seafood. Salads are also very big and of good quality. One... More

Fish the Macho way is beautiful. Great staff and a relaxed outlook. Have a pisco sour with ginger or the coca leaf infusion. Highly recommended.
