Located in Barra Vieja. A bit of a drive from downtown, but worth it. Had the grilled snapper with garlic (you can pick out your own and pay by the kilo) and it was wonderful. Nice place and very clean. Would highly recommend.

We ate here after a city tour - the food was a little pricey and pretty much all seafood, so if you dine here make sure that you like what comes from "del mar"!
