“Excellent Outdoor Dining”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2013

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.

“Good service, great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2013 via mobile

Warm atmosphere and a solid menu, not too fussy. I had the beef medallion with Bernaise sauce and the meat was cooked perfectly. I recommend sharing the Serrano ham and cheese board to start. It was a real treat.

“A great find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2013 via mobile

We were walking around our hotel area looking for a restaurant open on a Sunday, when we stumbled upon Baco. Very friendly staff, prompt service and good food. Love the fact that they give you free water.

“Went twice it was so good!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2013

We had afternoon snacks and drinks sitting outside at Baco's. The food and drink were great, and the atmosphere outside very nice. We went back for dinner several nights later. The food and drink were very good, the service not quite as good the second time. Definitely recommend it!
