“mixed feelings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

Maybe our expectations were too big, or it was because we went on a Friday evening and it was very crowdy, or whatever, but we have mixed feelings about this restaurant. Positive: charmed by the name - the food was good, the service too - that was not the issue. The thing is that I think the restaurant is a bit victim of its own success: you can not make a reservation, unless (long?) in advance, and only for half of the resto - we only decided a few hours in advance, so we went on time. There they keep you waiting for half an hour until the reservations hopefully don't show up. In our case we were lucky: there was a free table - unfortunately next to the front door, and I can assure you that winters in Santiago can get pretty chilly without heating. After showing our disappointment there appeared to be another table upstairs...under the airco/heater so our noses got stuffy. I admit it was not easy for the resto either since we were 7 people. We ate a tasty meal but according to our opinion the price was also tasty (we paid more than 300 dollar for 7 people - only some of us had a dessert - which was very good!)

“great night out - easy, tasty, happy.”

fresh king crab, good quality ingredients, nice combinations of flavours and food combos, great pisco sour, and attentive engaging service. Helpful in taxi troubles and generally really enjoyable. Lovely atmosphere!

“Worth a visit...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

Relaxed atmosphere, great service and beautiful well presented dishes. However, due to the fame of the place, it is always crowded with tourists (mainly brazilians) and the prices are very expensive! It is worth to know, but do not expect a great meal there...

“Ate here first trip, it merited a comeback.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Came here first in 2009. Had a couple of unique soups and mixed plated. The food was good, the ambiance was great. Came again with a couple of friends in 2012. Same ambiance and mixed in was a loud, happy bunch of New Zealanders celebrating a wedding or an engagement of some type. Singing, laughing, there may even have been a dance between tables. Just an all around good time. I wish I could remember the name of the soup... its sort of a mix of every sort of seafood and served in a bowl that's shaped like a ceramic chicken or something. Delicious. Good wines and mixed drinks. You can probably tell by now my friends and I really enjoyed this place.
