We had a tasty lunch. We speak little Spanish and had difficulty communicating with the waiter. Fortunately, the owner was able to answer our questions. It has a great neighborhood feel.

Casa De Cena made our list of Santiago restaurants. Truly enjoyed the old school ambience: panelled walls and oil paintings. Recommend Chilean fare with Cabernet Sauvignon. Excellent Service and comfortable noise level.

Casa de Cena is a classic in downtown Santiago. Just a few meters from Plaza Italia you have this restaurant open most of the hours of the day (and night) with great Chilean food.

We loved the very clubby feel of the rstaurant - the panelled walls and oil paintings. The service was very courteous and professional and efficient. The Pastel de choclo is excellent! My chicken was beautifully cooked and delicious. A wonderful meal!

In my early visit to Santiago i fortunately discovered this small restaurant. Best food ever. Really good service!!! Ask for the sandwich parmessan or Turkey and potatos. Good drinks specially Fernet with Chamomille.

This restaurant serves typical - and hearty- Chilean dishes. It's housed in a charming classical-style building, off Parque Bustamante. The atmosphere was quite pleasant and service was no-nonsense professional, of the old-school type. Prices are fair to expensive but commensurate with the quality and heartiness...More

This location was introduced by my cousins over 15yrs ago. The Locale now still delivers with service and quality of food. The pricing is a little more than the average restaurant, but you won't be disappointed. The waiters are good and know the menu well....More
