“Superb authentic Peruvian meal”
Reviewed March 27, 2014 via mobile

We happened upon Pantaleon by accident whilst wandering around Bella Vista and decided to give it a try for lunch. The restaurant doesn't look much from the outside - or inside - as the decor is tired and old fashioned. Don't be fooled. The food is fantastic. The ceviche was the best I have had in Chile. I may point out to the reviewer who did not like the ceviche that it is best to have some bread before ceviche as the acidity that is part of the dish can upset stomachs if you are not used to it. This is not the fault of the restaurant. The service was good and very friendly. Beware the pisco sours - very strong!! An excellent and unexpected lunch.

“What a find!!”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

We found about Pantaleon through TripAdvisor and its 5 star ratings are correct. In the center of the city, it is located on a busy, breezy corner. Although the decor is more "Hole-In-The-Wall" than Four Seasons, the food was delicious in all respects. The service was excellent, friendly, beer cold, but the highlight were the entreés which were delicious. There were 4 of us and 2 had the filet mignon with mushrooms and wine sauce. That dish came with either roast potatoes or salad and our friends ordered the salad saying it was one of the best they've ever had, loaded with fresh vegetables.
I had a grilled fish fillet smothered in a creamy piquante sauce, just a bit on the nippy side (perfectly done) and then loaded with seafood such as shrimp and squid.... with rice on the side.... yummy. My wife had marinated kabobed chicken pieces with onions and peppers with rice and fries, also delicious, although she thought the combination of rice and fries a bit strange. We had some delicious local beer with the meal.

We will go back for sure tomorrow evening to try out more selections.
This was a big win for us... Bravo Pantaleon!!

“Great Peruvian restaurant”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

One of our best Peruvian nights out. Delicious Peruvian food with the great service. It's very affordable. Don't pay attention for the decorations is none :) but it's all about the food. Very happy and coming back.
