“Excellent restaurant also appreciated by the locals”
Reviewed January 15, 2013 via mobile

After 4 days on the Chiloe island where had fantastic fish every single day we were looking for some good meat.
The interior is very cozy and the staff extremely helpful. You have all kind of meat but I recommend the beaf specially the "picaña". It is cooked on the charcoal and you get exactly your meat cooked as you request. The side dishes are also excellent.
The price is also correct for the quality.

“Great Food; Friendly Staff”
Reviewed November 25, 2012 via mobile

Situated on a quiet street, warm interior. Food was excellent, fresh, and cooked to order. The pork and venison sausage were big and juicy. My short rib was served simply with potatoes - cooked to perfection. Fresh salads. Great wine list. The owner went from table to table throughout the evening to make sure everyone was happy. Smoking is permitted in dining room, but was a minor nuisance.

“Less Than I Was Led To Believe”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

El Fogon de Pepe was recommended to me as a great steak place, but I found it only average and inferior to others in southern Chile. The steaks are ok, but not top, and the service was very slow - they seemed to forget about the guy alone in the corner both with the main course and dessert.

“a very good dinner in a delightful restaurant”
Reviewed April 24, 2012

I arrived at 22.00 and the restaurant was busy with other guests also arriving; an extremely relaxed atmosphere. There is an internal barbeque with great chunks of steak on the grill. No starter is offered but piping hot bread arrives in seconds. I ordered a Lomo Veneto – a 500 gram Ribeye. Not many folks are drinking wine but I order a Concha y Toro Grand Reserve Malbec for 11,000 – it’s excellent. Pepe (the owner) arrives and starts walking the floor. Pepe has an eccentric taste in furnishings I’m sitting under a deer’s head with substantial horns, also on the walls are rifles, miniature stage coaches, a saxophone and a green frog. The service is fantastic. Several folks smoking in the restaurant including Pepe – it’s not a problem. As I depart, Pepe’s wife, despite having very limited English, makes a point of speaking with me and makes excellent eye contact; really nice. UK £ 31
