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.

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.

It's small and intimate. We went for lunch and the price was set at 10,000 Chilean plus drinks. This included a salad, main course, and dessert. The meals were innovative without being off the wall, the waiter was efficient, and the dining room was nicely decorated. Frankly, given the tremendous afternoon heat and the short walk to get there, we... More
