Patio Bellavista is a nice place to hang out with multiple restaurants and bars. It tends to get crowded with tourists, and some places prices reflect this. The pricing at the Backstage seemed fair to me, I just went to drink some beer with a friend and we ended up ordering a pizza too which was quite good. Some europeans at the table next to us ordered a humungous crab which got everyone's attention and cameras were flashing all over the place. This restaurant was a good place to sit and people-watch, food and drink were good but the service was slow. It took a good 20 minutes to get our bill when we were done, although in fairness by that time the place was packed.

Worst service I have experienced in a long time. After being seated for a late dinner, we waited over 30 minutes and for our wine! We were given bottled water and people who were seated after us got their meals before we even saw beverages. The staff was indifferent and service was pathetic. Not recommended for any reason - way too many other options within 50 feet.

We had a lovely lunch here with two friends while visiting Santiago. We liked the food and services so much we went back for drinks a few days later.

The staff were excellent and very patient with our intimidate spanish. On our second visit the staff spoke english which was very helpful and unexpected.

A great place to relax in comfy chairs and modern patio style eateries
