Came here 6 years ago in 2009. Really enjoyable lunch. Meat very well cooked and a very modern and well presented restaurant. Would recommend

Worth for people who enjoy good meat specially lamb (cordero). Good atmosphere and very centrally located. They also serve seafood.

We ate here twice, a week between both times. The food was average, not bad, not wow either. The front staff seems indifferent really, you have to flag them down and push to get service. Maybe they have become this way from dealing with mostly tourists? The restaurant is located on the waterfront across from the casino in town. I... More

Lamb was good (BBQ in the traditional Chilean style) but seafood tasteless and dry. Pleasant staff with good wine list

Enjoyed the food here. The lamb ribs was tasty but too salty. The atmosphere was great. Would highly recommend the place.

The salmon tasted meat and the meat did taste bad, tasted as if it was from yesterday. At least we were not sick.

I tried a popular Chilean dish for the first time, Conger Eel, and wasn't terribly impressed. The restaurant itself is well decorated and presents itself well, too bad the food isn't better. A glass of Cabernet, side salad and my entree came to around $25 US.

We were searching for a good restaurant on a Sunday night and many of the other options were closed, so we found ourselves in Puerto Viejo. Believe the reviews you read about this restaurant! Although the restaurant is very chic and tastefully decorated, the service and food was truly disappointing. The waiters were unfriendly and acted like they were doing... More

The service was not the best. I ordered the Parrilla, the meat was hard, the chorizo was a short hot dog, forget the blood sausage, the chicken was mainly skin, but tasty, and the other unidentified meat was okay. I had changed my order and told him to cancel the first one, he brought out both things, and charged me.... More

Just to make sure I mention it upfront -- we didn't actually eat there. We walked in at about 8 PM in the evening, the restaurant was empty. They put us at the table with dirty linen and only partially set. Then we were left alone for a long time, nobody offered us drinks or anything, so we left for... More
