This is an old restaurant with good food, big portions and a decent selection of wines, not really expensive, tasty. Very good service.

We've been visiting Pez Dorado for at least 20 years... This time around food was not the same, simply not as memorable for the price-quality-service ratio. Not even the famous thin tostones were memorable, sorry to say. Croquetas were tiny and over fried. Seafood rice was tasty and with adequate portion of seafood. Filete de Mero was "so-so".

Pez Dorado is one of the oldest restaurants in the city, they keep their price (most people consider it expensive) I'd say it's a nice, quiet place for special occasions. Their shrimp pasta is beyond delicious, they also serve delicious Chinese food.

Pez Dorado is nostalgic from the moment you enter the restaurant, almost a throwback to the 70's with wooded decor and uniformed waiters serving both local and Chinese fare.

Fried sea bass was deep fried and tasteless..Nothing to rave about. I live in NYC, you can get far greater fish and chips for half the price! Service was very good however. Very traditional decor Nothing out of the traditional ordinary.

Pez Dorado is one of the most famous restaurant in Santiago, is an old style place that has seen better days, The food is consistent but nothing extraordinary. The best thing they have is chinese food that I found to be the best in the city. Is a place visited by the old money crowd, and price is on the... More

Excellent Chinese food with Dominican influence. Historically recognized as a traditional restaurant in Santiago, for business, Sunday lunch and family reunions. 100% recommended.

Great selection on the menu . My choice was for baked mero fillet , which remained exquisite, juicy and aromatic . Served with a great tasting baked potatoes. The dessert was a delicious fresh quesillo with a tasty pineapple syrup. Enjoy it!!
