My wife and I were in Santiago and stumbled into this place our first night. This place set the bar high for the rest of the trip! While I know some spanish, there were staff that spoke english to bridge that gap. The food and...drinks we both had were excellent and reasonably priced. Neither of us had ever heard of pisco, but on the trip back my wife had bought several bottles to share with friends. Highly reccomend!!More

We visited Chipe Libre for dinner and wow! The food, service, and pisco sours were just outstanding!! Priscilla waited on us and was very funny, charismatic, as well as very professional! She was very patient with my stumbling tongue with my Spanish and even gave...us some ideas for our upcoming adventure into Patagonia. And the prices were reasonable as well! Thanks so much for such a wonderful dining experience!More

American family traveling through chile. We were super hungry after our flight and were looking for somewhere close to our hotel with vegetarian options. They delivered!! The Thai vegetarian dish was delicious and all the meat eaters with me loved their dish. My Negroni was...excellent and my boyfriend loved his Pisco drink. I would love to return! On top of that even though our table wasn’t ready yet and we were antsy to sit outside with smokers they found us a cute table in a chic upstairs area to wait and drink. Definitely recommend this restaurantMore

After receiving recommendations to try Chipe Libre, I was glad I listened! We had a lovely patio table and we were given detailed explanations of the pisco flights we ordered. This was our favorite ceviche in Santiago!

We let our attentive waiter Oswaldo order our entire meal. Everything was delicious. The pi’s o cocktails looked identical but had three completely different taste profiles. On a Tuesday night the place was lively and fun.

Our waitress Priscilla was very friendly and helpful. We had a great time and would...come back to taste more picos agwin if our schedule allows.

Old and established and popular - so handling a table for 10 would not seem like a big deal even if you reach them on the day. Good luck.
