What a find! Charming authentic French restaurant with great food and reasonably priced. Tricky to get to because it's actually in an alleyway behind the street with several other upscale eateries. We enjoyed a very pleasant and tasty meal on the terrace. Do not miss...More

I insist in coming here and love it every time. I had the duck a Porto today and it was awesome. The foie gras was also delicious. Best service in Santiago.

Tucked away in a courtyard, Le Bistrot was a fantastic experience, serving some of the best French food I've had, including in Paris. The staff were friendly, kind, and patient with our bad Spanish and everything was lovely.

Yes it does. They were extremely helpful in checking with the chef and ensured everything I had was gluten free. See my review from April /May this year.

Description
In the heart of Providencia in 2010, Bistromania was born: a simple idea in a welcoming environment mixing old-time gastronomy with the great French classics. By bringing a slice of France to Chile, our goal was to conquer Chilean tastebuds and to take travelling French palates back home with our gourmet dishes in the bistrot style.Gaetan Eonet and his team invite you to their world, a simple space that reminds you of home, to discover or return to those traditional flavors...Welcome and... bon appetit !
