The food and service were very good although the service was a bit perfunctory/formal for my taste. View across the sea from the restaurant is very pleasant. There's nothing wrong with Chez Gerald but it's a wee bit soulless.

We enjoyed a lovely lunch overlooking the water. The tilapia was wonderfully prepared and delicious. It was one of the best meals of our holiday in Chile. We highly recommend Chez Gerald.

With Condor Tours we arrived for lunch at 2-30 pm. The head waiter made a big fuss of us and made us very welcome, we ordered straight away. We were hungry, and even though the restaurant was 80% empty it took them 35 minutes to...More

Our ski gear did not make it to Santiago when we did, so we headed to the coast for the day instead of the mountains. We came across Chez Gerald by chance while walking the seafront on Avenida Peru, Vina del Mar. It is an...More
