I discovered this restaurant through friends. With amazing views of the lake and volcano, traditional and rustic building, this is a popular local restaurant in the Chilean Lake District, distinctive with the influences that date from the German settlement of this area in the late 1800's.
Table bookings are not necessary but at busy times of the week/year it is well worth making a booking in advance if you can.
The "all you can eat" buffet is especially good value with a great choice of recipes inspired by traditional Chilean and German cuisine. There is the option of a salad bar, along with various 'cold dishes', while the main meat dishes use meats cooked over the burning coals that can be seen cooking along one wall behind the main serving counter. The meats are mostly from the organically farmed animals from the farm itself, and the wild boar is amazing. Many of the vegetables are also grown on the farm, or sourced from local providers. To finish there are a selection of desserts incorporating seasonally available fruits, as well as regular dishes of chocolate mousses, caramels and rice pudding. Alternatively (or as well) fresh fruit can be had, along with home baked bread. Tea, coffee and soft drinks included (don't know about the wine and beer). Good value buffet at 14,000 Chilean pesos (around $25US) per person, cheaper for children.
Family friendly but if you also want to stay late they will stay with you.
Apart from Spanish, German and English are also usually spoken here.
