Great place with authentic Chilean food. We went there with local relatives and they also love it, the food is as the grandmother would prepare. Everything is nice, the service minded staff, the food (not expensive) and traditional place. I look forward to go back!!!

With all the "international" cuisine in Santiago, we wanted some Chilean food. This place met all our expectations. I had chicken stuff with bacon and some sauce. Decent price, and in a great neighborhood (Bellevista).

This place was recommended to us by a tour guide at the nearby park, when asked about a place that serves typical local fare. It was indeed a very fortunate recommendation, with friendly service, very tasty food (ceviche to die for) and very reasonable prices...More
