Worst place I have ever eaten in my life! I ordered the vegetarian chorrillana it was basically a bunch of vegetables chucked together on top of some soggy fries and an egg on top. Oh yeah and some peanuts?? My boyfriend ordered the meat chorillana which was terrible too and on one side tasted of cleaning products. If this is... More

Took a chance walking past and went in for a local dish - choclo something which was really filling, very tasty with corn,meggs, meat etc., and very reasonably priced. Our hostess was American so it was good to chat in English about the local delicacies and beverages. Very nice surroundings for a quick meal.

Very decent food. We shared the beef sausage onion and egg player. Was way to much for two. Good beer as well. It wasn't the cheapest option. But was good. About £18 for two.

Went here for my birthday with my cousins and friends and it was awesome! The fruit drinks were fresh and really tasty and the chorrillana with wine sauce and apple on the bottom definitely gave a different touch to it!

Our guide took us along to taste some Chilean dishes. For me it was the first time eating pastel de choclo and empanadas. It is a lovely place but could not find many locals there (is that a sign?) The food was not that good, the pastel was very runny and empanadas were bland and saturated with fat. Now I... More

A small venue that looks very beautiful and old from the inside. It gives the impression of authenticity, but I think that is just for the tourists. The pastel de choclo was a bit bland, just as the empanadas. Ensalada Chilena was absolutely tasteless. The pisco sour was good! I would go here for a quick snack or just a... More

In Chile there are usually vegetarian options; pasta, pizza if you are lucky a rice dish. This restaurant has vegetarian versions of well known Chilean dishes. It offers something a little different. On the night that we ate here there was also some live music to add to the lively atmosphere. Well worth a visit and it will not break... More

In hip porteño style, service OK and very delicious food. Big portions, think about sharing! I like thier concept, only having few choice but prepare what they have very good. Go there with friends.

As vegetarians, we were delighted to have had this restaurant recommended to us by the owners of our apartment up the road (Comarca). The food was good an good value (not just vegetarian!) and the atmosphere fun and entertaining. We would recommend to anyone!
