A nice restaurant setting write on the main street in San Pedro. The service was quick and friendly and the food good. Prices are reasonable for San Pedro.

The food was ok but the pisco sour was really expensieve and not that overwelming.After a few weeks in Chili you get used to receive a good plate but here is was more lika a european standart and we weren't full when leaving the restaurant. A bit expensive for what you get.

We went to El Estaka two times and both times we enjoyed it a lot! the food is great - we tried many dishes: shrimp risotto, ceviche, onion soup, pastas, steaks. All of these were superb. The service is very good - once the waiting time was a little bit long, but the restaurant was full and waiters were in... More

We stayed in San Pedro for 3 nights and visited La Estaka on our second evening. It was the best meal we had whilst there. The lasagne and curry were excellent, and a nice break from Chilean cuisine during a long trip.

We ate here our third night. La Estaka was twice the price of the places we had been previously and the surroundings where better - but the service was nowhere near as good, with a somewhat surly waitress that was maybe having a bad day. The food was good, but there are plenty in San Pedro that are just as... More

I've tried so many steaks around the world. The wasabi steak at La Estaka was a whole new experience. I had the same dish twice out of the 3 time we had dinner there. Actually that was the only restaurant we had dinner during our stay in San Pedro. Amazing ambiance, friendly staff. Ooo don't forget to try the super... More

Our first meal in San Pedro was lunch at La Estaka. After eating a lot of completos and chorrillana the Asian fusion steak with wasabi sauce and mustard glazed chicken were fantastic. Highly recommend.

Seems like this used to be THE place for good food in SPA back in the day, but we ate here hesitantly after reviewing other reviews. Its very nicely set up and the decorations are eye-catching, but the food and quality of service is lacking for the value. We waited quite a bit for everything we ordered, including the check,...

Had a lovely meal here. I had a stake cooked perfectly my companion had a salad starter and then they had a chicken dish both were really good. Good selection of wine or beer, nicely decorated. Staff were so nice and helpful. Would recommend a visit not cheap but worth the money.
