For dinner we had wonderful meals at El Mercadito. We shared a ceviche appetizer called Las Borrachitas, then shared Caudillo de Congrio, Pablo Neruda’s favorite, as well as a lamb dish. All was excellent.

Best seafood I’ve had in Chile (and I’ve had a lot). Unfortunately it took a while for them to bring my food, but that seems pretty common here. A great meal with a great view.

We sat on the patio which was lovely and enjoyed the best mussels I've ever had. Then the meal continued with tempura hake over a Linda bean mash which was incredible and an eel and potato stew. Really the best meal we had in Castro.

Very nice place to eat fish and centolla in Castro. The food is very fresh , tasty and very well presented Option also gluten and lacto free. They have a very large variety of Chilean wines and fresh juices. Excellent dessert and good prices.

Very friendly staff and nice dining environment, but the food there is slightly overated. The octopus was overcooked and dry.
