Sitting there eating a great meal in an idyllic setting is hard to beat! Walked on a nice path from the beach to the restaurant, and really savored the whole experience. I had a really tasty scallop dish. We were there on a Monday afternoon...More

From a lot of the reviews on here we almost didn't go, but I'm glad we did. It is busy at the weekends so if you haven't booked you need to get there early. The restaurant was full and many people were waiting to get...More

We arrived prior to opening hours. Instead of waiting outside we asked if we could get a drink before they officially opened and the Manager agreed to this. We had a Pisco Sour. Dinner was nice. There was a bit of waiting time. There had...More

We had to wait over an hour for our table and we felt that locals were prioritized over us. The service wasn't friendly at all. We felt rushed and felt the food was mediocre at best for the price. I wouldn't return.

Probably the best location right by the water, with excellent food (fish and seafood) and a great service. Totally worth it.

We ate here after a day at the beach. It was highly recommended and did not disappoint. The fish wash cooked very well and the different sauces were absolutely delicious.

Chiringuito is a lovely restaurant at the end of Zapallar Beach with yummy Machas Parmesanas and other fresh fish and seafood.

I enjoyed my visit to this place. The food was fresh, not the most sophisticated culinary experience but good nevertheless. For this reason I found them a bit overpriced. The service was attentive and the decor quaint. The view is great. I recommend this place...More

I expected this restaurant to be more about the views than the food, but wow was this place terrible. The menu is bare bones and, frankly, awful. The fish was tough and bland, accompanied by fries that clearly came straight from the freezer aisle. And...More
