After a long flight from the U.S., we were exhausted and hungry. At the suggestion of the folks at our hotel, we went to La Marmita. Great food -- one of us had the pork and the other had the steak. Pretty sure they had veggie options as well. The place is obviously popular with the locals -- while we were there, a community orchestra came in for a meal after their show.

Surprised at no. 1 status on TA.
Menu sounds better than it really is.
Didn't do ceviche any justice.
Steak was quite good but overall just average food.

This was easily the best place to go and eat for a vegetarian (and others). Really tasty food presented brilliantly and great service too. The only problem was that they were so busy in the evening I could get dinner there as well. Might be worth booking ahead or going early.

We had guanaco stew, king crab and a vegetarian dish with pumpkin. It all tasted wonderful and the price was very reasonable!

This restaurant was adviced to us by our guide in torres del paine and the owner of our B&B.
Very nice food, good wine, very friendly personel and a fantastic pisco sour!
