The restaurant opened a few months ago, is without doubt one of the Top 5 restaurants in the city. Great location, nice decoration, good service and the food is always good, sometimes even excellent.

Classy. The Atmosphere is Beautiful - decorated with antiques and white linens with a beautiful view of the sea side. The food is exquisite. Everything we have ever ordered from the menu has been succulent and to our liking. The seafood is especially delicious with fresh vegetables as side dishes. The serving sizes are plentiful with a big screen television... More

Really enjoyable meal here in the evening. Great spot overlooking the beach in La Serena. Food was excellent. Famous for their steaks. Highly recommended.

If the reservation system work will be even better. We made a reservation for an important event and when we got there they didn't have a table for us!! After they cleared the mess (Chilean way) we had a great dinner and celebrated our niece's graduation in style. Food is good and service as well. Location is good and place... More

We went for dinner, it was overall nice, even though the risotto was a little overcooked... The place is decorated nicely, and the service is good.

This is simply my favourite place to go in La Serena. The top quality service has no equal. Food is always fresh and timely served, having a excellent mixture of seafood and meats. The seafood appetizers are really great!! They also serve the best "pisco sour" and "mojito cubano".

Tololo Beach is a fisherman palace, with eclectic decoration of natural shapes and classic details. Service is correct and efficient; cuisine is simple and effective in authentic flavors (try the tuna steak to get impressed and satisfied). A good experience at all.

I was there with two of my N. American colleagues and a Chilean host. Being so close to the water I wanted seafood. This restaurant did not disappoint. We ordered different seafood dishes for each of us to try. The fish was excellent and fresh. (Trust me...I catch my own seafood, I know fresh) The shellfish was well prepared and... More

This is one of the fancier restaurants on the Avenida del Mar. The decoration and ambiance is very nice. As usual for the area, the menu is mostly about fish and meat. There were five of us and all were happy with our meals. I had a Risotto, however, which was presented in the menu as a main dish that... More
