“Excellent Seafood in Santiago !”
Reviewed January 20, 2010

We dine with my wife last week during our trip to Santiago de Chile. The restaurant is simple, cozy, and the food is great. We had "Salmon a la Mantequilla" (grilled pink salmon with a butter twist) and "Reineta a la mantequilla" (the reineta is a seafish of great mild taste, but i can' translate the name).
Wine was a "blanco de la casa", a cheap, well balanced, fruity Sauvignon Blanc.
We also ordered the Salsa Margarita to align with the fish. It's based on milk cream, assorted shellfish, etc.
Excellent dining experience in Santiago to enjoy fresh seafood and not pay a lot. Simplicity and high quality.

“Great seafood in a family setting”
Reviewed August 30, 2009

This is a quiet restaurant that fills up many weekdays with locals. The menu is totally fish and shellfish on a single sheet (the English menu has a few descriptions). I ate there four times over a week, covering things from a seafood soup, eel, fried fish, etc. This is the real stuff, simply done, and very reasonably priced. They are open continuously for outsiders who might want to get dinner 'early'. The place fills up around 9PM. Service is very friendly, and forgiving for lacks in Spanish.
