“Slow service, but good food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2013

It certainly makes you wonder whether you've made a good choice when you have been sitting at your table for nearly 20-30 minutes and there's no sight of the food you have ordered. In this restaurant, I suggest you make the waiting more fun by trying to identify who the ·"famous ones" are, by taking a look at the set of photographs they have on display by the stairs.
I ordered a "chupe de jaiba" and it was okay. The prices are a bit high. They say it has a good view of the port and bay, but I couldn't enjoy it as it was around 11 p.m. when I was here, at El Sacho. By the way, "sacho" means "anchor".

“Good meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

I had a good meal at Sacho. The 2nd floor has great views of the bay. Food is of good quality although nothing spectacular. The ceviche de congrio was very well made, and the congrio frito was -for once- well cooked. A good pick.

“Sides not included”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2012

Bland food really. Lack of options for sides. Plates just come with fish on them unless you ask for chips or potatoes which come at an extra cost. The fish wasn't overcooked. It would have been nice for them to remove the beards from the mussels before cooking them- I had to pick out 10 from a bowl of 12. Nice view though.

“Best mussels ever!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2012

We had a lovely lazy lunch at Sacho´s. The choritos (fresh mussels) were the sublime - the best we´ve had anywhere in the world. The salmon was huge but unfortunately overcooked and tough. Service was average and they left us waiting for the bill for FAR too long and somewhat ruined an otherwise great lunch. The mussels were brilliant and the view from upstairs is lovely.

“Great family atmosphere and food....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

Enjoyed a beautiful day in Castro and the lunch at Sacho was the highlight. Had a great table upstairs with view of the bay, the service very friendly and Salmon stuffed with cheese, tomatoe and chorizo was excellent.....limited wine selection but very kid friendly.
