I was in the restaurant with my parents. My mother had stomachache and the waiter together with the chef offered to prepare a special menu for her - clear vegetable soup and steamed fish and quinoa. I was amazed! Me and my father had regular menu (you can choose from 2 starters, 2 main dishes and 2 desserts). All of... More

Nondescript from the outside it would be easy to miss this small restaurant but the food was both good and unusual. We tried two entrees one of these was tasty grilled pork ribs and the other was a more unconventional dish of lamb's tongue stuffed with deer chorizo. Sounds bizarre but it was good. The restaurant is small and actually... More

Food was very good and service also good. It is a good first stage for fancy food using local elements in a very infant gourmet destination. We enjoyed the moment and the mixtures of preparations.

Our hotel recommended and booked this restaurant for us. We were definitely not disappointed. The chef, Marta Neculpán, has a real talent for preparing spectacular and memorable fare, and the menu changes relatively frequently. Many of the people eating here were locals; this is always a good sign. The menu and wine list are reltively small, but the waiter was... More

The best meal we had in 5 days in San Pedro, and certainly the most unique and memorable: combines Atacameño, Chilean, Mapuche ingredients into tasty, artfully prepared, and reasonably-priced dishes. There isn't an extensive menu (just a fixed-price meal), or a huge wine list, so come with appropriate expectations and you will enjoy yourself.

Baltinache is a small, attractive, cozy restaurant a bit away from the main street of San Pedro. The single server spoke no English, but offered a warm welcome and communicated adequately with pointing and smiles. Artisanal beer and Chilean wine were very good. Soup of the day was very bland. Pork chops were overcooked and too tough to cut. Dessert... More

Wonderful presentation of excellent food. The owners use fresh available fish, meats and vegetable. We had stuffed mushrooms as an appetizer and wonderful albacore fish. Food was served with minimal sauces so you can taste the freshness of the food. Service was excellent.

Maybe among the best and more authentic choices for typical dinner in San Pedro de Atacama. Loved by locals. Highly recommended.

I went to Baltinache with my wife and son after reading good reviews on TA and also based on a suggestion from the hotel we were staying. This restaurant is like a must eat in San Pedro according to most reviewer’s. We book a table (really recommends. We saw the waiter dumping several customers without one). The service is not...

A husband and wife team that serve incredible fresh food.Their fusion of Chilean food is a gourmet delight in this small desert town. The food that comes out of the small kitchen is unbelievable...to perfection with presentation.
