A really unique dining experience. After having a few difficulties finding the place, we were very grateful that we persevered! Beautiful setting and delicious food. A limited menu but options that catered for vegetarians. Presentation of food was good too. Waitresses very friendly. Would thoroughly recommend this place but worthwhile booking in advance to avoid disappointment!

The past month we have eaten in many fine restaurants across the Lake Country but this one stands out as far and away the best. We walked the 2-1/2 kilometers from the theater up into the beautiful countryside and found this delightful homestead where the whole family participated in preparing us a most splendid meal, with most of the food...

We visited Se Cocina restaurant last month and was a great culinary experience….cannot be compared to any other in the area! The location can’t be better, surrounded by beautiful nature. Inside, the atmosphere is great… poetically decorated, tables beautifully-set, recipes written on the walls….just charming! The food was delicious, remarkable! Special mention for the family owner of this place, who... More

This was one of the top 2 meals we had in Chile! (other was in Castro) It looks like an old but prosperous farm. You can see the freshest ingredients for much of their menu right outside the door (keep the door closed or the ducks will walk in). The kitchen is largely in the dining area (some of it... More

Great place, music, drinks and of course food. The ulmo sour ir an excellent pisco sour with a different approach. We tried all the different courses and the common opinion was: by far the best you can get in Frutillar. One tip: you need to make reservations, they only cook during your stay at the restaurant and allow only a... More

Awesome restaurant with a fantastic view of Lake Llanquihue. The food is tasty and uses mainly Chilean ingredients obtained locally. Fresh food, cooked in front of your eyes. You may speak directly to the cook, ask for recomendations and see what is being cooked. They have 3-4 options for each course. Is pricey, but absolutely worth it. Book in advance,... More

This is a great place, a little ranch with a restaurant, the food was delicious, and the girls were delightful. We went for lunch, and they opened for us. While we were there another couple came in too. We had the steak and fish, house salad, everything was well prepared and delicious.

My husband and I just came back from Se Cocina and had the most wonderful evening of great food and beautiful surroundings. I don't think I have ever enjoyed so special an evening of food. Victor Cartagena is such a talented chef and his passion for food and cooking was so contagious. We were surrounded by organic gardens with a... More

It's a tiny restaurant which serves a really good contemporary food. With true love for nature products, they try to reach balance between home-made and gastronomic meals. We've came here when the sunset stars and as we were eating picture in window was changing. There is no menu and you'll be suggested by Carta del dia. We tried hake with... More

The place itself is very nice, with kitchen and chef sharing the room with guests. However the day we visited the food left much to be desired. Rice and polenta not well cooked, greasy pork chops, in a very limited range of menu options. Not what you expect from a restaurant charging such high prices. Service was amateurish, lacking in...
