“Best food in Castro!”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

The food in this restaurant was magnificent: better tasting, better value than the other restaurants we tried in downtown Castro. Although I must say that after trying a couple of the other well-rated restaurants in downtown, we decided that we much preferred the food here, so we kept returning for lunch and dinners. Everything we tasted was delicious. The Tabla del Mar provided a wonderful, generous sampling of different seafoods, both cooked and ceviches. We also accompanied it with roast vegetables and risotto. Yum. The Murta Sour is a definite must: a pisco sour with preserved local Murta berries. Then there's the osso bucco and the kuchen for dessert....

It is a 10-15 minute drive from Castro town: north on Route 5, turn right on the road to Dalcahue and Rilan, about 3.5 kilometers on the right. You can't miss it. You shouldn't miss it!

“A wonderful welcome to Chiloé”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

We had such an enjoyable meal here: homely, comfortable atmosphere, friendly service and delicious food. Really fresh flavours beautifully put together. It's still quite new and we're gutted we won't be able to see it evolve. We'll definitely be back if we ever return to Chiloé.

“I'll be back! ;-)”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

A chilean friend of mine recommend this restaurant for our trip to Chile. What should I say? He was right! Friendly atmosphere, kind and gentle service and great meal!

If we will ever get back to Chile will drop by ;-)
