We had dinner at this restaurant and then came back for lunch on another day because we really liked the prawn risotto, salmon quinoa and salmon cerviche! The seafood was very fresh and dishes were all very high quality. Service was friendly and great too! Definitely recommend trying out this restaurant when you are in San Pedro de Atacama!

Food here is delicious. The daily menu is usually amazing, but every item in the menu is great (and I tried most of them). The warm salmon salad, and the salmon in butter sauce, roasted pepper and quinoa are my favorites. Service is friendly although slow (which is expected in San Pedro). Don't expect to get order, get the food... More

I stumbled upon this place with three friends and we loved everything about it. We were given complementary Pisco Sours when we sat down along with freshly baked bread with a very tasty goats cheese dip. We all ate from the set menu which was 10,000 Pesos (€13) for 3 delicious courses. I had tomato and corn soup as a... More

Great food for value. On the higher end of price but well worth it. Very friendly staff. Helped out our Spanish. Salad was big - we could have split it (it was a Fresca salad). Chicken curry was fabulous as was the salmon ceviche.

We wanted a warming dinner and to try our first Chilean wine after an intense 3 day through the Salt Flats from Uyuni. We were not dissapointed. The atmosphere is very important to us and with a fire pit going and all tables occupied this was a firm favourite in our eyes. The meal itself was sublime, and the bottle... More

Nice and cosy decoration, delicious food (tabua de frios, curry shrimps, cannelloni), pleasant waiters. Go there to be sure to have a nice dinner! Best place we found in San Pedro.

The food is good... but the plates are small... so, don´t go very hungry! Nice atmosphere and place. But we were dissapointed with the service. They said they had a "promotion"... you get one Bottle of wine and "earn" another... Ok... the problem is they don´t say you can´t drink the second Bottle inside the restaurant, you have to take...

This restaurant is located on the main street in San Pedro and both my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our early dinner here during our stay in town. The chicken with mustard sauce was excellent and service was friendly and attentive (with our waitress speaking a good bit of English which was a bonus). It is probably one of the... More

Four of us went to La Estaka for lunch in order to accommodate two vegetarians (one of them was me). The vegetarian dishes (especially the quinoa salad) were very good. However, those that ordered ordered meat dishes (including one that the waitress said is the house specialty) were disappointed by what they received. It is one of the more expensive... More
