Very cute restaurant, loved the decor. Food was good. My dish had a fruit on it that I am allergic to and they were very kind about bringing me a new dish. Frozen pisco sour was nice too!

Great little place overlooking the lake with great food and wine. I had grilled trout with a wonderful salad. Great view of the lake if you sit at the right fabled!

Fantastic place, unique style and super fancy. The menu is diverse and every dish is delicious. We got erizos and atún, excellent choice. The staff is very kind and concerned about the kids. You will enjoy the beach view also.

Creative, fresh and with a wonderful view. The salads are large and can easily be split. We split the perfectly prepared hake encrusted in basil with a corn purée and also shared a salad. Perfect. Go.
