Had dinner here our first evening in Valparaiso. It was marvelous. We had the (new) degustation menu and it was marvelous. Two fish and two meat courses each for appetizer and entree. Perfectly cooked and served. great Chilean wine list too. Service and rhythm were impeccable. Had breakfast here for three mornings as well. Food choice was good and the... More

The view from Restaurant Montealegre’s terrace of the harbor and the surrounding hills is fantastic. When we arrived, the sun was low in the sky, turning everything gold. As night fell, we could see the lights come up in the city. Montealegre is less about the food (okay but not great) and more about an elegant dining experience. It is... More

This restaurant is part of Hotel Higueras. The food is really good and refined. Personally I recommend the lamb, I also tried fish with a kind of risotto which had a touch of lemon and vegetable broth. It is expensive but I think is worthy. Service is really good.

Restaurant recommended in a heart beat!! Impeccable service, fullfilling view, and great food full of genuine taste. Loved the pace of the meal with sorbet between appetizer and main course. The view from the terrace is peacefull. An afternoon of little pleasures spent here for the right price.

Our family of four (two parents; two 20-something children) had a pleasant late lunch here. We sat outside. The view, presentation and ambiance are great. The food was fine, but nothing special. A bit unimaginative, and not quite as good as one might expect for the price, compared to other area cafes (see La Caperucita y el Lobo) -- but... More

Located on one of the blind streets of upper Valparaiso, You have to know where this restaurant is to find it. It is a two tory restaurant, with the street entrance on the top floor and the dining area and bar on the lower floor. Its strength is the well-located balcony that overlooks the port of Valparaiso and the lower... More

Great food, excellent ambience, good service - what more do you need? All of the entrees were fantastic (I tasted all four), as was the berry dessert. The waiter recommended a perfect wine too. This is on my list to visit again.

This was the best - what a wonderful experience. Formal comfortable settings with excellent friendly service - not too formal, just right. And the food was exquisite. I had delicious pulled pork cooked in a delicio0us sauce and wrapped in a light pastry shell. The desert of caramelized apple pieces was also a delight. Some of the other highly rated... More

For once in Valparaíso it's not the size of the portions but the taste that matters. And wow. This is good! Book in advance for a table at the patio. A bit on the expensive side, but not if you compare it to similar dining experiences in Europe.
