This is a wonderful unique little restaurant. No doubt, this is the result of a very personal vision and effort. The menu had a bunch of things we would like to try. Our food was delicious. The service was friendly, personal and professional. The one problem was that I found it very difficult to sing along with the Beatles background... More

Maybe we did have somewhat high expectations for our visit, as we did read many good reviews on the restaurant on trip advisor and lonely planet, but having toured the country for three weeks, did we really have a good feel for what is good and not and much can be charged for it. Unfortunately was the kitchen in our... More

We wandered through Valparaíso on a Tuesday afternoon and found a number of restaurants closed, it looks like they may rotate between days off. Luckily Vinilo was open, as we had a really nice experience there. My wife really liked her Vinilo grilled cheese, and I tried the signature ossa buco. A bit heavy for what I'm accustomed to for...

Service is good, as well as its location, however, the food is not worth the price they change for it.

I went to Vinilo for lunch and dinner on two separate days. Both experiences lead me to the conclusion that this place can be nothing but highly recommended! For lunch I enjoyed very tasty long-cooked (steamed?) shoulder ham sandwich made from homemade bread, creamy avocado, a tasty milk-based mayonaise. The local Kross dark beer (Guinness style) fitted well with it.... More

Is famous for the ossobuco. But they have a very good fish to. Is quite expensive for the quantity but good for the quality

I believe the reference to Vinyl is the 33rpm records they play on a couple of decks . Good to hear all the raves from the grave i.e. Beatles , stones Elvis etc . The food and the atmosphere are though much more up to date . We were quite a bit more mature than most of the clientele but... More

It's called Cafe Vinilo because they plan LPs here. I had a tuna steak with potatoes which was very good; the service is also attentive.
