The first time I visited this neighborhood I had my handbag stolen out from under my nose. I didnt return for over a year. Since I have been back many times to the fabulous restaurants - my fave is Boca Nariz. It´s a nice place, but please keep your purse on your lap during the ENTIRE meal!!!

If you are looking for a fun night out and some good restaurants to choose from, lastarria is a great area to visit. Friday nights are lively with a mix of tourists and well-heeled locals. Great people watching.

This was one of my favorite places to stop by after a day of work at my internship. It is nice to stroll through the neighborhood, which has plenty of beautiful restaurants and cafés and an artsy vibe with its museums and theaters. Plus, the Centro Cultural Gabriela Mistral (the GAM) is right nearby, with lots of cultural shows and exhibitions, and it is not a far walk to the best Chilean universities and even Plaza Italia and Bella Vista, where there are a lot of clubs and restaurants.

The Barrio Lastarria is a small triangle between the Cerro Santa Lucia (small Hill east of the center), the huge building of the Gabriela Mistral Cultural Center in the Bernardo O'Higgins Avenue or Alameda and Merced Street, with the small parish of the Holy Cross built circa 1850 in the middle. Fortunately the around 7 blocks that make the neighborhood have been neglected by the modern tall buildings that surround and the streets still have many low buildings and houses of more than 50 years. This has made that the area has been filled with great bars, restaurants, craft shops and alternative clothing creating a pleasant atmosphere for strolling. Unfortunately, as in many other areas of the city the streets are still full of cars parked or looking for parking and there is still much more to pacify the area to make it a nice stroll.

Very small area. It's a nice upscale looking street. And that's what it is...a street. Some people make it out like its this amazing, romantic incredible place you could spend days strolling. That to me is very silly/ridiculous. There are a number of restaurants of which I am sure many are good. There are a few shops but really not that many. It doesn't feel like the kind of street where the average person is going to want to pop into THAT many places and spend a romantic day or whatever many of the people on here say. It is a place to walk for a bit, find a restaurant or bar and sit for a bit, and move on...
