La Casona is a lot of entertainment, wrapped around good food. A piano player entertained with a couple sets of mostly US and British piano standards for much of the evening. That the old upright piano was slightly out of tune gave the entire experience a feeling of the Old West and added to the overall atmosphere. The food was... More

Desperate service, excellent dinner, terrible dessert, great atmosphere, well located. If I was to visit here again I would sit closer to the stove otherwise you have to leave your coat on.

Came here for dinner twice during our stay. Food from both the set menu and a la cart was delicious as were the mojitos, which they had on special offer. Lovley live music, with one man playing the piano early in the evening, who was then joined by two others with different instruments later on to play traditional chilean songs.... More

This restaurant is well rated in tourist guides and it is mostly populated with foreign tourists. But the atmosphere is pleasant and the portions huge. We had the steak and the pot roast and a pina empanada. The steak was not a fancy cut but was delicious. The wine list is good and the fire is nice

Good food with a reasonable price (8500 for the set menu) but the staff wasn't give attention at all. We went for lunch after looking at it on the street and talking with folks offering the menu at the door.

They serve only Chilean foods, parrilladas and play only Chilean music, especially pachanga & cumbias, with a central bonfire. Excellent lomo vetado, camarones pil pil, pollo a la pobre, carne al jugo Jocelyn was the best server we have had in San Pedro and we have had some fabulous servers here.

After travelling through Bolivia I fancied something more comforting and a bit fancy. La Casona really hit the spot. I went for the ribs with potatoes and it was excellent. Another recommendation is anything 'poor man' style. Just a word of warning, the portions are huge!

We had dinner here with a large group with ages ranging from 6 to adult as part of a school field trip. They were able to accommodate us in a separate part of the restaurant right next to the beautiful and extremely warm fireplace. While the adult entrees took a while to prepare, the waiters were able to get the... More

We liked the look of this restaurant as it has nice wood burning fires and the menu looked good - it did not disappoint! We had the 'Corn pie' and the 'Poor mans style' dinner - this was a huge plate of food! It was very tasty.
