It was a pleasure to come back to this wonderful restaurant where everything on the menu is not only delicious but fresh.
The four of us ordered different dishes and every one was perfect. The two sisters not only own this fine restaurant but make you feel that you are back home.
Definetely a MUST if you are at Puerto Varas.

At first I must admit I was a little reluctant to go to this restaurant, since it was (supposedly) far from the city center. Then, when we found out first hand that the maps show a different location of the restaurant than where it really is, my wife and I thought about going to another place. But, for some reason we insisted in finding this restaurant... and boy was it worth it!!!
Attended by its owners, a Catalán family from towns near Barcelona, this restaurant offers exquisite dishes from the Iberic Peninsula, combined with a beautiful atmosphere which makes a perfect combination.
Definitely a must while in Puerto Varas! Do not waste your time (and money) by going to the typical restaurants like La Chamaca or La Olla. Come to this hidden jewel of Puerto Varas.

On our recent visit to Puerto Varas, we looked this restaurant up after seeing it on TA. We were glad we did as we had a great time. The owner welcomed us with open arms and served great food and wine – you’re basically eating in the front room of their house! We shared antipasti and the Seafood Paella, washed down with a local chardonnay - which were all excellent. Wouldn’t hesitate in going back if it wasn’t so far from London….

Xic Dali was a treat for us.  Our starter was a salmon & shrimp tart - very complex & simply to die for.  Main courses were trout stuffed with a mild serrano ham & another fish which was marinated in a complex sauce, both excellent, and accompanied by an equally excellent chardonnay from the Limari region. The setting was intimate, a bit like eating at someone's home. The lady who waited on us (who I think she might have been an owner) took us around before dinner, showing us old family photographs and other historical photographs from the region. We enjoyed visiting with her and hearing her stories.

Having read the previous reviews on TripAdvisor about this restaurant I had really high expectations about food and service at this place. All in all I was not disappointed, as the service was very (!!) friendly, the food of high quality and the athmosphere very nice.

However, I was a bit disappointed that we had to wait about an hour for our food. We also were not too satisfied with the fish dish ordered, as it was good tastewise but to us not worth the money paid. However, the meat dish was perfect and absolutely worth every cent.

All in all a nice evening at a good restaurant, which I can recommend to anybody willing to spend some money for good value.
