We went here for coffee and cakes after reading the review from Tripadvisor and guidebook and have to say that it did not come close to meeting our expectations. The food was certainly NOT spectactular (just average) but the service was very poor. The guy...More

My partner and I dropped in for a coffee and snack one evening. We were both shocked and pretty appalled at the bad service we received; completely ignored for the 15 minutes (we didn't even get a hello), only grunts audible when taking our order...More

Lovely, bright surroundings, friendly service. Relaxed atmosphere with newspapers and magazines to browse as well as a book exchange. The menu is inventive and the soups and salads are fresh and tasty. Open earlier for lunch than most restaurants in P. Natales, this became our...More

A brilliant vegetarian restaurant/cafe serving exceptional daily special dishes alongside a fine selection of home made cakes. An especially relaxed atmosphere in which you could happily spend all day drinking, eating and enjoying some of the large selection of newspapers, magazines and books available. Huge...More

We ate lunch one day at El Living on the main square. This is English run and a popular place to hang out over coffee whilst reading from their good selection of magazines, or catching up on wi-fi. I recommend the spicy sweet potato soup

We're not vegetarian but it was so nice to take the opportunity to avoid meat for a couple of suppers while in Puerto Natales. The atmosphere in El Living is very relaxed - it's a great place for coffee and cake as well as a...More

A nice vegetarian restaurant with an imaginative and fresh menu, but I found the portions a little too small for the prices. The walnut burger was tasty in and of itself, but had the bun been toasted, not cold, a little of their creamy dressing...More

Hmmm, not sure, I would call or shoot them an email. But if they are, make sure you go as it was one of the top places we went! Especially for special dietary needs.
