The food here is always fresh and new and sometimes daring, made to order and beautifully presented in a clean, bright dining area. Wine list is excellent, and staff are courteous and well-informed.

The service is warm and friendly, and the dishes here - many seafood - are unique and not something you'll find elsewhere in Santiago. If you're always in search of new tastes and you love good food this is the place for you in Santiago...More
