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!!!

As with most of Chile, nothing is mind blowing on the food scene. Small portions and blah service plus higher prices.
