“Best meal in Chile”
Reviewed December 11, 2012 via mobile

This was recommended by our B&B and exceeded expectations. There is an amazing view from all tables over the bay. Our waiter didn't speak much English and us no Spanish however he managed to be really helpful. We essentially just went with recommendations from him and had a great 3 course meal (quality fresh fish) with lovely wine. Excellent value.

“Pacific elegance with food to suit the view!”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

This restaurant is one of the best in the world. From seafood to steak with brilliant Chilean wines. I have eaten there three times and each time it is better. How can they keep the quality so high? It is amazing.

“Excelent food, excelent view, superb waiter”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

We made a reservation for five people and asked for excelent view as we were taking a visitor from abroad to Valparaiso. We knew about this restaurant from personal experience, and we were surprised by the improvements in the menu.
At all, everything we asked was fresh and delicious, and advised by a happy and very professional waiter.(Patricio). The only "black point" is a piano music a little too loud, but as soon as we asked to lower it they did it...
If you want a beautiful view, excelent food and ambience, this is the place for lunch. For sure this would be perfect for dinner as well....

“Great View: Like Eagle Nest...”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Very great view.
On the very top of the city over looking to Pacific Ocean entirely.
Watching the endless ocean and the big birds on the beach is big pleasure.

Food is Italian and Mediterranean.
Fish varieties and cooking style is good. Starters are lovely as well.
Try fried calamari, small cuts and delicious.
Have a good wine menu as well.

Interiors and atmosphere really makes you fell like you are in Italy.
Service is good as well. This might be we were there with a local businessman.

Needs to be tried.

“How a pianist can make a great please a terrible experience with a loud noise!”
Reviewed January 21, 2012

Great food, excellent service except for the atmosphere due to a pianist that plays too loud not allowing a conversation in this great located restaurant in Valparaiso.
The good thing is that he plays only Saturday's so avoid lunch if you want to talk or enjoy a quiet lunch.
