“Just delicious”
Reviewed November 24, 2013 via mobile

Came to this restaurant after seeing its rank in Trip Advisor, and it was definitely worth the visit. The place is small but really cozy. We were greeted by the owner, who was kind enough to make recommendations for food and wine. Everything in the menu looked delicious, but we finally decided on the ceviche, the salmon and the fish and chips, which were absolutely delicious. The wine was also really good. I totally understand why it's number 1.

Be advised, they close at 3pm for lunch, and open again by 8pm for dinner.

“great, un-pretentious, out of the way restaurant in Puerto Varas”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

to be brief,

great menu, few choices, you want all of them

had the burger and curry. The curry smelled great, tasted very good.
Burger was juicy, not overdone,
good pickle, melted cheese. Great beer to match ( Chester beer)

open kitchen, everything looked spotless behind the glass.

owner chef and manager, who are physically there.
Which is always a very good thing.

simple, nice, southern style decor.

there's a huge garden in the back, the owners are planning to do a summer patio back there soon.

the not so good: just that it's a hike from town, but it's a block from the beach.

well worth the walk.

next time will try the fish and chips!

very good service.
and great value for the money.

“Great food in Chile”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

We had a lovely dinner at this restaurant set 1 block back off the lakeside road. The couple who run the place worked in London so we tried Fish &Chips and Beefburger which proved to be excellent, if not very original choices. A modern decor and a view of the kitchen provided contemporary touches and the service was attentive and enhanced by a conversation with the chef. Not sure it's a "gastropub" but a good restaurant for sure.
