Excellent, the concept of how the food is prepared in front of your eyes, the fresh ingredients, charismatic cooks and the whole atmosphere is one of our best experiences in Santiago. Be aware that you might have troubles finishing their well endowed sandwiches, but your mouth will be full with rich flavored, and you will have sufficient fuel to continue... More

I ordered the churrasco con palta (beef with avocado) and it was just great. It costs 5 mil Chilean peso.

As a regular traveler to Santiago, Fuente Alemana is a must go place for me to balance other top notch restaurants that I go for business dinners during my week of travel. Food is excellent, juicy meat sandwiches, and friendly service; Simple and unpretentious but still, magnificent and delicious. It's a place that gives you a true sense of locals,... More

I visited this place off peak times, (6:30PM) so it was not very busy. I easily got a seat. Menu is 100% spanish, which is not really a surprise at this kind of place. You really should be coming in here knowing generally what you want. The waitress spoke no english but she was very helpful and patient with me... More

To be fair I would give a 4.5. We loved our lunch at Fuente Alemana! A bustling sandwich shop with counter seating around a busy cook top with some wall bar seats and standing room. The ladies making the sandwiches are incredibly helpful and nice. Especially since I had no idea how to order when I got there. Here's how... More

Delicious sandwiches in an informal setting. Pick your choice of bread, meat and sundries at lunchtime and then prepare to spend the rest of your day alternating between rubbing your swollen stomach and trying not to fall asleep. I had the barbecue beef ("churrascos") with avocado and cheese in a brown roll - very tasty indeed.

We absolutely loved this place. It is a very casual place, and you may have to stand to eat. The sandwiches were so so so good. You MUST give it a try, you will not be disappointed.

Get a sandwich with everything, including the sauerkraut (chucrut). They go well with a blond schop for 2600. It gets crowded at some points, especially between 8 and 10. No tables, just counter space. For remote counter space, you order and pick up at the main counter. Very busy, active place for people watching. Starting to get some tourists....

The restraint is a bit noisy when you walk in but this adds to the flavor of the restaurant. The sandwiches were so delicious and the restaurant was very clean. Awesome place.

A local recommended that I eat here, so I gave it a go. I wasn't disappointed. The menu is limited, but I definitely recommend the sandwich rumana - broiled ground pork and beef mixed with garlic and chili, while topped with sauerkraut, tomato sauce and mayonnaise. It was delicious, especially when washed down with a draft beer. Fuente Alemana is... More
