I followed Tripadvisor reviews and came to try out La Cuisine with my boyfriend. Let me begin by saying that we did not regret the choice! After several weeks in Chile, we have had different experiences with food, but overall it has not been impressive....More

Don't have time but 4 course French meal for lunch for the normal price of an appetizer. The outside is anassuming and inside is perfect. Soup or salad for appetizer, gourmet entree including Osso Buco and a desert with a glass of wine.

We had dinner here twice while in Punta Arenas and were very pleased with everything we tried. The restaurant seems to be a family operation and is quiet which we prefer. The staff was friendly and english menus were available.

I spent 4 days in PA and my dinner here was the best buy far. Service was excellent. The patent was well presented and tasty. The lamb shanks were delicious. I highly recommend this place. Prices are reasonable compared to the rest of PA.

This was an unexpected gem in Puerta Arenas. The food was delicious. I am lactose intolerant and the chef came out to discuss the menu with me and make some recommendations. Everything was wonderful including the wine recommendation.

Nice to have a change of cuisine (no pun intended) in Punta Arenas and this is a French-Chilean restaurant with a variety of dishes. It is not very big and was quickly filled when we were there, which made the service lag a bit (especially...More
