Nice eating if you like sandwiches and "crudos"

Small but very home-feeling place. Few tables, so if you are a big party, you can have issues to get a table. Characteristic food is "crudos" (raw meat with bread that you season). Are really good, the quality of the meat is superb and the sauce is delicious. They also have sandiches and bakery... read more

The salad was pretty nice, and it was very nice they could put in 2 more eggs. But 11.000 including a water is way to much for this.

When going to Valdivia, one of the places you can´t miss is the Hausmann cafe in Isla Teja. You can enjoy the beautiful days in summer with a Kunstmann torobayo beer and a "crudo" (raw meat with onions and a secret sauce)

Went there in the beginning of may and had one of the best burgers of my life, plus some delicious cheese-filled empanadas. The service was very good and the café does remind you a bit of traditional, bourgeois German restaurants, which is cool.

First of all I think there is some confusion as there are two places called Cafe Hausmann, yet this one is the one listed on lonelyplanet at O'Higgins 394 as a place you should not miss. I was disappointed. We ordered coffee but only got hot water and instant powder to mix ourselves. We wanted to order juice but they... More

Cafe Haussmann was delightful and an unexpected find. Apparently there are 2 of these restaurants in Valdivia, one is very small and close to the center of "town" whereas the other is a larger place, just a quick walk over the bridge. We ate at the larger restaurant and thoroughly enjoyed eating outside, though the night was a bit cool.... More

We took the city tour bus and ask about the best places to eat, and couldn't decide weather to go to cafe Haussmann for "crudos" or to Kuntsmann restaurant, both highly recommended. We decided to have crudos for appetizers at Haussmann's and lunch at Kuntsmann's. It was a very good choice!!! Crudos at Haussmann are very famous and really good... More

If you are looking for a low-profile, neighbourhood bar to have a great beer and something good to eat, then Haussmann's is for you. The menu is small - hotdogs, burgers, and the famous 'crudo'. A 'crudo' is minced raw punta beef - no fat - squashed flat and served on a slice of bread with onions. You squeeze lemons,... More
