Perfect. I had a Palta Victoria as a starter: avocado filled with centolla and Mayo. For main course lamb with smashed potatoes. Better with a glass of wine, Castillo de Molina Carmené is a good choice. And for desert, a Calafate (local fruit) mousse. I...totally recommend it. Food was very good and amazing service.More

Sotitos— kinda an upscale restaurant. Knew I was in trouble since menu was in Spanish and English. (Then the nearby table of Americans had cell phones going off three times and they sat at their table and talked loudly telling others, I’m in Chile, blah...blah blah. Service was standard. Food was average. Anyways, I ordered Grecian pulpo and paleta ( avocado) salad. Avocado was simply an avo sliced up. Octopus was okMore

We were the only ones in the entire restaurant. With that, we somehow had incredibly slow service lol. Our lamb was overcooked, our crab dish beyond average and our wine bottle choices (yes, plural) out of stock. Was still tasty with friendly staff, but not...for those prices and quality.More

This restaurant had the convenient feature of being right across the street from Hotel Dreams so we walked over. They have white table cloths and excellent service but the prices were very reasonable. We enjoyed fish entrees and half a bottle of wine and it...was less than $50. A nice vacation lunch.More

This used to be a landmark in Punta Arenas. Not anymore. The service is rather slow, the food is simply OK, but the menu has not changed in years, and prices have skyrocketed. It has lost the club atmosphere it had for years. On my...last visit, the star of the house, king crab, was badly unfrozen, almost tasteless and very expensive. A few older waiters are still welcoming and as warm as they have alwaysbeen, but there are very few left. The olden days are missed!!More

Great restaurant for local cuisine. Atmosphere is very authentic. Service lack when the restaurant is full. Definitely value for money. Watch out for the barbecue dish it can serve at least 3 to 4 people, but packed with flavor!! Dulce de leche ice cream is...out of this world!More

Situated conveniently close to the port this comfortable and traditionally furnished restaurant immediately makes a good impression. The friendly welcome and good table added. Service was good and efficient with suggestions well worth following. The King Crab is excellent cold whilst hot Scallops and the...Conger Eel made for a remarkably good meal. The Tarapaca Chardonnay was also a good choice. Not cheap by local standards but excellent value in UK terms. Restaurant was largely full of locals ... and was full at lunchtime ... which is always a good sign in a touristy location.More

Although the restaurant it's a bit expensive, it has dishes that no other restaurants have in Punta Arenas. We had spicy scallops (ostiones al pil pil) and it was awesome.

A great place to have King Crabe! They were delicious. However the place is somewhat worn out and probably needs a good refit.

We had a dinner reservation here, made it when we arrived when they opened for dinner! I'm sure later in the evening it's difficult to do that. We ordered lamb, conger, and shrimp. All were good, portions were large, sauces are definitely a necessity in...this town as there seems to be a lack of seasoning on meats. We found food in this part of Chile bland as a general rule and the only way to make it palatable was to add sauce!More

The service here was impeccable however, for the price, I thought the food was quite lacking. The ingredients seemed high quality but under seasoned. Definitely did not stand out. Probably would not go back here.

My wife and I were in Punta Arenas, Chile and we were searching for a nice place to eat. Walking from our hotel, we strolled along the water and saw Sotito's across the street. We stepped inside and asked the waiter for a menu and...were amazed at the variety and pricing. The dishes ranged from king crab to spit-roasted lamb and all were reasonably priced. With a great bottle of Chilean wine for $24, we had a great 3 course meal for under $100 US. Note: you must try the Conger EelMore

The Owner came to the tables to talk to clientele (a nice touch and so few restaurants do this!) and brought Giant Crab (centolla) as a complimentary starter. Superb! The waiting staff all seemed to have worked there forever and were very attentive and knowledgeable....The fish I chose was a trifle dry but OK. Everyone else in the party enjoyed their meals and it was a very family-friendly atmosphere. Relatively pricey for the specials such as Centolla, but worth the visit!More
