Description: Although it's several month ago we ate twice in this restaurant I am sure it's still worth visiting. The food was excellent and so were the wines. The staff was very friendly and ambitious. We visited Macerado during the week so it was not very crowdy. Against that we had some nice conversations, in english. In the weekends it can be very crowed. They are not the cheapest restaurant in Casablanca, but in our opinion highly recommended!

“5 Star Experience!”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

Macerado was by FAR the best dining experience we had in a 10 day trip to Chile. Located in a historic house, as you drive into Casa Blanca off the 1st exit from Ruta 68, there is no need to driver further into Casablanca for food. The wait staff was charming and informative. We had Ceviche to start along w/ a local Chardoney recommended by the staff that was excellent. My wife had the fish of the day - with sides of fresh avocado, tender artichokes and an amazing sauce filled w/ small shrimp. I had the seafood trilogy - which was 3 small bowls filled w/ piping hot crab, seafood mix, and mushrooms. Exquisite! For desert we had small apple pies w/ homemade vanilla ice cream - wow! The pace, food and atmosphere were all 1st class. Total bill for 4 people was approx. $110 US. We have paid this and more for much inferior meals on this trip - so value comparatively and absolutely was outstanding. Can't miss this place. Approximately 1/2 way between Santiago and Vina del Mar - so great stopping point.

“Fantastic place!”
Reviewed December 20, 2013 via mobile

This is certainly a jewel of a restaurante. One of those very few places where you feel at home, with real dedicated service from its owner, charming place, fantastic food, great wine variety and best of all great value. Ever thought Pinot Noir could be served as a coctail? Do try the Pinot Sour, yes! Pinot Sour!!
Simply a Gem. One of those places which can' t go unnoticed. And one to remember

“Great Chilean experience”
Reviewed December 6, 2013

A perfect afternoon delight at this lovely family-run restaurant. all organic food with the freshest fish available. Good selection of tasty wines to pair with outstanding gourmet food. Very cozy ambiance. The house made balsamic vinegar is especially delicious--just a subtle hint of caramel. The owner bottled some for us which we purchased to take home.

“Fantastic food and space, service is good but slow”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

We've been to this restaurant twice and have absolutely loved the food. Because of their location in the Casablanca valley, they also have access to and knowledge about the best wines of the region and country. The food is just excellent - a gourmet twist on typical Chilean dishes and ingredients. The restaurant itself is lovely and the owner and wait staff are very attentive and friendly. Our 9 and 12 year old boys loved running around with the dogs in the garden while we sipped wine and waited for our food. Both times we've been there, we didn't mind the longer wait for the food since we weren't in a hurry and were happy drinking wine. But if you're in a hurry, it might not be the place for you. Be aware, they are open for lunch until 4pm every day and dinner on Fridays.
