The first meal in Santiago was at BACO, a large restaurant nestled between other restaurants in an area surrounded by apartments. A decent enough menu with beef as the main attraction. Our pisco sours were well made an not your typcal sour mix found in many bars these days. The chilled water came automatically, served by the young waiting staff. We had the fillet steaks - one was ordered medium and the other med-rare but both came medium. The fries were nice but London now serves double-cooked chips everywhere and these did not compare to their European counterparts. The sauces were excellent and the beef tasted good, very good. I topped off the evening with an Iles flotant, which was well made and a good end to the meal. Wine by the glass was a sizeable serving - far better than the miserly offering in London restaurants. A great wine list, as expected in this wine capital.
I enjoyed the meal and the ambiance but it was nothing out of the ordinary to give it a big thumbs-up. An almost '4' rating but not quite.
