“Amazing food, great price for the area, best meal we had in Vina del Mar”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

WOW! My friend and I stumbled upon this restaurant yesterday on our way over the bridge and decided to come back later for dinner as it looked so cute and welcoming from the outside. I'm so glad we did. As soon as went back we were sat at a nice table and the host Philippe came over and showed us the menu. The place has a great vibe, a really good energy and you can tell that he and his wife absolutely love what they do and cook!

The beef dish we ordered was no longer available but Philippe offered to cook us something special up and came back with the most amazing steak dish covered in melted French gooey cheese, and incredible herbed roasted potatoes. Oh and the French Onion soup we had for starters was the best I've ever had... strings of cheese, heaps of onions, mmm. We had creme brule for dessert, which was perfectly crispy on top and creamy and delicious inside. This was easily the best meal we've had in Vina del Mar, and possibly in the Valparaiso region, I would recommend this restaurant to everyone! Plus, it's not ridiculously overpriced like some places. It came to $60 US total for three amazing courses each and a bottle of wine, which is pretty good for Chile - we have found most places crippling here compared to other parts of South America. But this was great value for money.

Even better, when the restaurant closed me and my friend sat and talked to Philippe and his wife and friend for a long time, playing music and dancing. What a great night. They really helped make our last night in Chile special without even realising it was our last night. We will never forget Le Bistro Merci! Becky and Noah. x
