We called in having seen this place well ranked on TA. We sat at the rear in gravelled count yard which was cool and "outside". Food and service excellent although waiter did not speak English. As a bonus there was a jazz trio of piano bass and drums playing who were very good.

We liked the restaurant so much we came back a second time. First time, I ate the salmon salad and it was such a huge portion that my boyfriend had to help finishing it. He also enjoyed his Thai curry (served in a coconut👍) The second time we tried the lunch menu. Our starters were excellent but the salmon had... More

My husband and I had the curries here for dinner. I had the shrimp curry and they specially made a vegetarian version for my husband. The presentation, flavor and portions were perfect! The live music added to the charm. The ambience was delightful! This one of the best dinner on our Chile trip.

We spent our forse night in San Pedro in this fusion restaurant. The bar area is really cool with lots of candles and colors. This place is also recommended for a drink. Waitress are very nice and service is good.

We ate here our last night in San Pedro de Atacama, and I wish I had eaten at La Estaka earlier. The food is beautifully presented and delicious! I look forward to future visits.

In a warm night and hot in the two rooms near the street, we choose the patio. A great choice since it was much cooler there and a band played, not overwhelming us. Food was quite good and a good value.

Wonderful food and excellent service (we counted at least four people happily waiting on us). The Pisco sours with Rica Rica (a local Atacama herb used to spice them) were great. Every dish we ordered to share was delicious: chicken curry, salmon ceviche, quinoa salad, and risotto with shrimp. The blending of spices and flavors was exquisite.

The address in Tripadvisor is wrong. The restaurant has moved 2 blocks west on the same street.(already 2 years ago) Probably a sign of destiny I couldnt find this place for 2 nights. The Taboule as a starter was generous and refreshing. Right what you need after a day in the desert. The positive first impression got ruined by a... More

We were a family of five with our youngest child, nine years old. Unfortunately he is a picky eater. The restaurant was unwilling to make any accommodations. We asked for simple plain rice. They refused to give him any unless he ordered an expensive entrée which we knew he was not going to eat. I just don't understand their inflexibility... More

Really nice food and great presentation. The service could've been better, but it's understandable provided the date (jan 1st) . Lovely chicken curry.
