My husband and I recently had lunch at Chef Pato. I ordered a half pizza, (the house specialty is pizza) and my husband ordered the dish of the day, pot roast with rice and salad. We shared both of our orders. The pizza was yummy with a thin crust but the pot roast was extraordinary. It was flavorful and cooked to perfection, so tender you could cut it with a fork. I would definitely recommend this cozy little restaurant.

Me and my friend loved this restaurant. The food was fantastic, much more varied and interesting then what average restaurants were offering during our trips in Argentina and Chile. I particularily loved Mexican pancakes, with chicken, well seasoned and with plenty of veggies. Also the welcoming salsa was simply great. We went there twice and would go more if we had not left Pucon after that. Especially as the prices were suitable to our limited budget.
The staff was very nice and the owner/manager even gave us a ride to our hostal in pouring rain!

Preface: Randomly picking restaurants in SA can be like a minefield. It's not like the US where bad restaurants don't survive... there is horrible food everywhere, and Chile is actually kinda expensive, like minimum $12 / entree. I had a few garbage meals in a row in Pucon and finally decided to check online....
Found Chef Pato on lonely planet's website, 2 blocks from my hostel on the main drag. Awesome. Standard complimentary bread but comes with grubbin avocado salsa and pico de gallo - you can tell a lot about a restaurant from the little things. The house cabernet is excellent. I had their signature dish - chicken fillets with mushroom / cilantro sauce. Outstanding. Best meal I've had in weeks. HIGHLY recommended. Coming back tomorrow.
