Superb food in a relaxed atmosphere with attention from waiters who care. Authentic Basque food. I've been here many times and it's never disappointed. Excellent.

Really beautiful basque food in a cool area of Santiago. Try the chipirones in black sauce (stunning). The waiter recommended the eel and it was beautiful also. Nice atmosphere with very friendly and professional staff. Can't go wrong here.

Our dinner here was one of the best meals we had in Chile. We shared the lomo roquefort and an eggplant blood sausage special - amazing! The restaurant was comfortable with a pleasant atmosphere, and the service was good. The drinks were excellent, too.

We stumbled across this restaurant while wandering near our apartment. The food was excellent, the service great...the waiter looked like he'd been there for years. They had English menus too which helped. We had a shrimp dish to start then baby goat and veal., both were delicious. As others have said the only down side was the smoke. We were in the back of the restaurant and had 3/5 tables around us smoking which became pretty unbearable at the end. (People smoking between every course!) it may have been better in the front of the restaurant where there was more space. Would have rated 5/5 if it was smoke free.

If you are tired of the bland food in chile, this restuarant is worth a visit. We started with five Tapis plates, some were excellant, some so so. We had a nice salad, and a outstanding fish dish with lots of garlic and spice, it was one of the best fish dishes we have had in Chile and Argentina.

The service was very good.

There were two negitives:
They reheat the Tapis plates in a microwave oven, which I guess is ok, but not expected in a good restuarant.

There is no "no smoking area" in the Restaurant. They put us by an open windowby the street on the second floor, but that was not really adequate. So if tabacco smoke is a problem for you, do not dine here!! For that reason we will not return.
