“Excellent food and fantastic view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2013

We have come here several times over many years and the food is still excellent and service good. Try to get a table outside with a nice view. I usually have fish (tuna or sea bass) and the desserts are also good. Like always in Chile make sure you don't order any sauce in case you are used to eating fish in a more Mediterranean way. They also have good wine by the glass. Easy to get here as it is close to where you come up with the Ascensor Concepcion. Children are also welcome. Their menu is like a small newspaper which is always interesting to read for somebody interested in food and wine. Take your time here. Service is maybe not very quick but the view is so nice that it doesn't matter. We have always come at lunch time and the restaurant was always full.

“Bad experience”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2013 via mobile

Miserable dinner dumped upstairs next to loud party with two children learning to sing 'happy birthday'. Service was oblivious to the situation. Food was not worth it. Pork drowned in a raspberry reduction and a white wine served beyond warm. When I mentioned just how bad the experience was the staff member taking my payment simply asked 'what propina (tip) she should add'. Funny really. Be warned.

“food with a view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013

We had dinner here twice while staying at Manior Atkinson nearby. The food on both occasions was lovely, salmon, steak, lamb shanks and the desert sampler was amazing and had other diners looking on with envy ("I'll have what she's having!!") We sat inside on the first night, unfortunately a little too close to the singer and on the second night we sat on the balcony with beautiful views of the city lights at sunset. At the next table was a very well known tennis player who was able to enjoy his meal with only a few interruptions for autographs and photos.

“Lunch with a view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2013

We ate here on arrival into Valparaiso on the recommendation of a friend. The restaurant is in a convenient location at the top of a funicular in a lovely old mansion on a number of floors. Despite it being a perfect day, we chose to eat inside to avoid the smokers on the balcony - we still had an amazing view over Valpo and Vina del Mar in a room with 3 walls of windows.

We had a waiter and waitress looking after over the course of our lunch us and received friendly personable service from both. The razor clams with parmesan were enjoyable, a light starter and my main, Reineta (a local fish) that was recommended was a good choice, along with a Patagonia beer. Also, the menu comes in the form of a newspaper, which you can take away with you.

We really enjoyed the meal, the setting, the view and the service -it got Valparaiso of to a great start. I would certainly recommend it for lunch.
