Attended this restaurant after 8 years we were there for the first time. The place remains fantastic, delicious meal and great service from our waiter with a pisco sour to die for. The restaurant is not cheap but most definitely very good value for money. Great view to the lake and the volcano.

We waited for too long for our order to be taken. They simply ignored us, while at same time behave perfectly kind and helpul towards other patrons. We asked ourselves why: Well, it's hard to tell the tale, because it is shameful: All the other patrons were Blonde, Caucasian and looked wealthy, except us; who look like average latinos. Even...

Waited for 45 minutes for the meal. It was overpriced. A flat taste. My wife went to the bathroom and the manager yelled at her thinking she wasn't a customer. One of the worst experiences we've had in our travels. I went in and screamed at the so-called manager back. Awful. Just Terrible.

Had a first class meal This is a German Village and so order German Food! It amazes me that people complain about crab cakes. There is a lake in front and they eat fish? Go for ham and pork. Good beer, good service. Come and try it

We ordered sea food and had the best experience in Frutillar so far. It has been a cozy, warm and welcoming night here. Excellent food at fair prices.

Went to this restaurant for dinner last night and for the first time in my life, was so dissatisfied with the food and service that I left no tip. Evening started well. I had the best table of the place, in the corner with two windows overlooking the lake. It was very quiet when I got there, only 3 tables... More

I ordered crab cake and it was tasteless and highly seasoned with pepper. A total disappoinment and inedible.

Obviously popular but the waitstaff is clueless. Order was incorrectly reported to cooks, another order forgotten, etc. Would not return.
