Nice large place with lake front view. A popular spot in the area, so we didn’t always find a table. Food is mainly Italian, pizza is a good option but I would not recommend the thin crust. Good choice of beers. Pisco sour peruano was...big and strong!More

Had lunch there. Very busy despite being off season and a weekday. Had to wait for a table but not too long and wait handled efficiently by receptionist. The food was delicious and came quickly despite being very busy. The location on a pier is...very attractive. Certainly a “must visit” in Puerto Varas.More

This has some of the best views in town; ask for a table or seat at the bar at the back. We didn’t eat but the Pisco sours were the best we’ve had. It does get very busy snd people were queuing to get in...when we left at 7pm on a SaturdayMore

We heard the place was difficult to enter, but one day we just were passing by at the time they open, so we wait very little, and we were in .... Food was very good, great pizzas, and excellent pasta ... Highly recommended !!

Not worth the wait. We got there at 14:30 and managed to sat down at 16:00 - expecting great food, though it was not the case.

We found this restaurant by chance as we walked along the lake shore. The restaurant was busy but we managed to get a table. We ordered a seared tuna salad and a 4 cheese pizza to share and 2 large craft beers. The portion size...was good and the food was well presented with a great taste. The beer was also great. Service was excellent and the bill including a tip was 25,000 pesos or £25, amazing value. I'd highly recommend this lively, welcoming restaurant.More

This restaurant has one of the best waterfront views in Pto. Varas. It was recommended to us earlier in the week by a hiking guide. When we arrived, we were told we would have to wait about 15 minutes - - I must have misheard...but it was about 15 seconds. We were seating in the back room which is over the water offering stunning views of the lake and snow-capped volcanoes. I sample two excellent craft beers (under the Tropera “brand”). I ordered a Picante (spicy) pizza and my wife ordered a tuna salad with freshly seared tuna. Both we excellent.More

Great time! Simply good atmosphere, good service, good food. Big and busy. Get a spot in the back for a view over the volcano. But honestly, any spot here will make you have a fun night.

Be prepared to wait on a busy summer weekend. We gave up on Friday night but tried at noon on a rainy Saturday and waited over an hour. Easily the most popular place in town. Very family friendly with lots of kids. We really enjoyed...the innovative pizzas & salads but unfortunately did not save room for dessert which looked utterly amazing as they passed by. My husband had been to Tropero midweek in September (raved about risottos , pastas and boards to share) and loved the view of the volcanoes and cozy feel. Unfortunately it was very cloudy with limited view this weekend. We plan to return after crowds die down in March-April to enjoy the view & dessert.More

Thin crust, lots of topping, large - huge restaurant/bar and most people were eating pizza, we sat at the bar and it was fun to watch how organised and efficient the multiple staff were. The pizza guy was flat out putting on the toppings and...never stopped for a minute. The pizza oven was always full. Certainly the best pizza we’ve seen in Chile as evidenced by the many people eating them. Pisco Sour was also good and there’s a good choice of wine by the bottle - we had the Pino Noir, a light red and served cold. If you like thin crust pizza go for it! You won’t regret it.mMore

Excellent place, good location and very good service. We had pizzas, risottos, tartars, raviolis, and a dessert called el volcan. Everything was fantastic!! The place is also very nice. It is crowded, so you have to reserve at lunch.

Amazing pizza-probably the best you’ll have in Chile! Also lots of brews on tap. The lamb pasta was a bit off-putting, though. Servers are millennials and move at that pace (slow....‘could care less’ attitude). Otherwise a good experience.

First, it's tempting to stay a while longer at this spot! 'Tropera' offers a wide range of house craft beers, from light lagers to a tasty double-IPA and even a strong Belgian-style ale. Their food is "comfort food" that was perfect for our cool, rainy...summer day. We had a hot artichoke dip...and eyed the pizzas closely! They cater to vegetarians well, the setting is beautiful, and service was efficient. Therefore it's tempting to drop a "5" on them, but those should truly only be reserved for A) standout places that truly go above & beyond (e.g. 'The Wellington Gastro Pub' in Ottawa, Canada), or B) places that are a very strong 4 and deserve to be celebrated for something bigger/better (i.e. a 4.5 or higher that rounds up to 5). Anyway, 'Tropera' is a great location to have a great beer - or two - and snack on some tasty comfort food.More
