It is situated in the Santiago market, good place for fresh seafood, and it is! Atmosfear is ‘family type’ and is buzzing. Lunch was excellent, perhaps on the pricy side but it is worth it for the freshness of the seafood.

My mom and I ordered one appetizer, one main fish dish, and one pastel de choclo dish, totalling over 40,000 pesos (roughly 60USD)... way overpriced in my opinion. The appetizer we ordered was the cheese clams-- decent, no real flavour besides cheese. For the main,...More

You must try this restaurant If you want seafood that is over priced, over cooked, lacks quality & presentation and leaves you with the feeling you have been badly ripped off! The food, ambience and service was substantially inferior to other seafood restaurants we had...More

The tour guide recommended this restaurant .We walked around the market area which has many similar restaurants but we chose this one as it looked very professional and the waiter spoke English. All the meals were reasonably priced from $10/12 with a drink(port). The presentation...More
