“Ok food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

The vegetarian option of pumpkin/potato stew with some special seaweed was not that fantastic. The atmosphere is nice. The waiters/waitresses are not exactly friendly though.

“Great Find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013

We got temporarily lost looking for this charming little restaurant but were glad we kept looking (it's across from a park, painted green). Among one of the best restaurants we went to in Chile. I had the zucchini squash vegetarian dish (so pretty I took a picture of it--the squash is cut vertically into three pieces and each has a different stuffing). My friend tried the King Crab, the house specialty. We saw lots of different orders come out, and everyone seemed pleased. Service and decor wonderful. A great find

“Yum yum yum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013

The staff is excellent and the food is even better. A good wine selection along with killer cocktails, especially the Pisco sours, compliments the diverse menu well. Try the Congrio with Quinoa, the stuffed zuchinis and the incredible pork medallions.

“The best restaurant in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2013 via mobile

2 years ago we discovered this restaurant and we were delighted by its food and the original way it was cooked.
We came back and again a wonderful food. We had ordered each something different and we all envied the other dish. The value for money is also very high.

“The Hit of the Trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2013

We ventured to this restaurant without a reservation and were intially told they were full. We persisted and they eventually found us a table upstairs. Although they had run out of tequila for the margaritas we wanted they suggested an alternative berry drink that was quite fun and got the lunch started on the right foot. The food was delicious and beautiful. We had to take pictures of the pork tower (which tasted as good as it looked). The risotto dish and the blue garlic soup were outstanding. I have no idea if all the diners were tourists, but there seemed to be at least some locals and many Spanish speakers. The decor is delightfully bright and "artistic" and a trip to the restrooms is necessary just to look at the signs indicating which bathroom is which. It was a delightful afternoon. I am assuming you should call for reservations or get there early.
