Visited it with a friend and my sons -- idea was to repeat Anthony Bourdain´s visit and check what it´s like. Service is good, not too quick but well intentioned (kudos to Ignacio Vasquez). Food is ugly, too strong and extreme, nothing gourmet at all,...More

A bit hard to find, in a dodgy part of town, but worth the effort! Great food and the best Pisco Sour of our 2 week long trip. We will definitely return, next time we are in Santiago.

Traditional and delicious place. The surroundings are not nice but once you are inside it doesn't really matter. Eat the arrollado huaso! It is amazing!

If you want to really know the chilean criolla culture, this is your place! What we call a "picada", a restaurant with typical chilean comfort food, in a typical chilean neighborhood, and with good prices, this is what you find in El Hoyo. If you...More

This is a excellent place for authentic Chilean comfort food. We went for lunch around 3 pm and it was packed. We ordered two earthquakes (serious punch no pun intended!) and a delicious steak and potato dish with egg on top and the pork wrapped...More
