After eating rehydrated food for four days whilst trekking in the Torres del Paine National Park, this restaurant ticked all the right boxes. The mouth watering smell of fresh bread cooking in the wood fired pizzaiolo in the centre of the restaurant greets you the minute you open the door. Inside is warm and cosy with attractive décor reflecting the building's past life as general store. The shop's old cash register still sits on the counter and the walls are adorned with art deco advertising posters. Long, antique pine tables run the length of the restaurant, hence its name.
After burning calories for days, I did not feel the least bit guilty in ordering a large thin crust 4 cheese pizza from a very imaginative menu that included pastas and hearty salads as well as numerous types of pizza. The food is super fresh and you can watch the dough base of your pizza being made in front of the pizzaiolo. Mine was crispy, delicious and perfectly cooked, as good as anything I had eaten in Italy. I was also delighted with the choice of draft and bottled Patagonian craft ales and beers and was so glad I discovered the rich and chocolaty Hernando de Magallanes negra! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place.
