Excellent food, better service, but it killed my mood to wait 40+ minutes for the appetizers. I wasn't able to order a main course to have to argue with the owner for it and at the end my kids were falling asleep at the tables.

The flavor, presentation and overall quality of the food was among the top five meals we have ever hand and we have dined at some very good restaurants around the world. It is apparent as soon as the courses are presented that great care and thought has gone into each dish. The staff is superb and chef/owner Javier is ever present.

We arrived on Santiago and went straight to the Bellavista neighborhood. We decided to just find a restaurant for lunch where the restaurant had a nice interior and a good menu. We found both at Epicureo. It is next to a well-reviewed Choco restaurant, but Epicureo is more relaxed, with excellent food. We sat inside, next to beautiful wooden windows by the street. I had a ceviche with a yellow pepper infusion (appetizer portion was large) and my husband has more traditional ceviche with Moro. The waiter was so friendly and I was able to communicate with my minimal Spanish. They offer both English and Spanish menus. The cortado (coffee) with milk after our meal was amazing as well. It was simple, fresh and excellent! Also, check out the small kitchen. I walked by on the way to the restroom and noticed all of the delicious fresh seafood.
