In Bellavista neighborhood in Santiago de Chile, if you are up for real traditional Chilean food this is the place. Pablo Neruda used to visit this place to enjoy the food and traditional environment. You could even sit in Nerudas table if you are lucky.

While this may not be a beautiful, upscale restaurant, we have always gotten one of our best meals here. The restaurant is old and the bathrooms are very scary, but the service and food are wonderful. This is another one of our "must do restaurants"...More
