“The best in Town”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

Arrived in Vina del Mar, and ws not impressed by the town. Looking for a good restaurant we got some information from tripadvisor and this restaurant was highly recommended. We got to the place early afternoon to book for the evening and where told that it will be closed for Sunday and Monday. So we booked for Tuesday. I could not wait to get to this place as all the restaurants we did try where very poor. Tuesday we made sure to be on time as this place is very small and does not offer space for more then 6 or 7 tables. The wellcome was very friendly the place looked like nothing and I thought the same again. BUT.... the food was superb from starter to main and desert. I did not leave without booking the same place for the next night. It is for sure the best in town. My only issue is it looks very poor from the outside and if they suggest a wine make sure you know the price. I am sure you will love this place.

“Outstanding”
Reviewed February 22, 2013 via mobile

We chose La Ciboulette based on the reviews on Trip Advisor and were not disappointed!
The restaurant is small and understated, but the food was absolutely outstanding. The duck confit was the best I've tasted and the desserts out of this world! Don't be misled by the simplicity of the flambé strawberries with vanilla ice-cream - absolutely delicious!
If you are in Vina del Mar, don't miss the opportunity to visit this place.

“Excellent food”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

We went there after reading trip advisor reviews. Here is the thing: the place looks like nothing from outside, you can very easily miss it. The interior is just Ok, small, tight, old fashioned type of cosy. In my opinion it could do with a face-lift. That is as far as criticism goes. The food is divine. We never go to the same place twice whilst on holiday. We broke the sacred rule in this case. So here is to the magnificent lady chef who prepared a fantastic quiche (salmon and spinach) a near sublime duck confit. Next day's salmon carpaccio was equally delicious, followed by an interesting risotto. Food was a little more expensive than many highly talked about joints in town. Wine list is small, you may choose less expensive or you might go for the higher priced stuff. It's up to you. W went for a more expensive wine, but could have had very nice bottle for much else. Would I recommend this place? Yes, wholeheartedly. Well worth a visit.

“Delicious food in a charming restaurant”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

It is well worth seeking out this charming little restaurant, located away from the glitzy casino area of Viña. The food is delicious, satisfying and affordable. The service is hospitable and professional. The staff speak good English and French. I recommend the chocolate truffle with carrot ice cream – I may go back tonight to savour it again!
