We enjoyed the local fish and Chilean choices on the menu. Nice atmosphere and wine. We'd return again.

Food was wonderful..felt very authentic. The service was great except for... We were a large group and as we found at all most all the restaurants it was very hard to get them to understand the concept of separate bills!

We came here because of its historical importance. We saw photos of previous clients, including Chile's Presidents for the past 100+ years. Food was average but the experience of being in a time warp worth the visit.

The first meal in Chile and we came across this restaurant close to W Hotel. Initially we thought this one could be touristy. But we were too tired to look for another one.

The food is wonderful and they are very confident with it. Everyone is there to make a lunch or dinner better than it is.

Santiago's reported oldest restaurant still is serving up an excellent meal. They have outdoor dining but we chose indoors with air conditioning as it was hot and we had been walking all day.. The decore is average Santiago and nothing special. Service was a bit slow but within the typical Santiago range. Food was not average. I had sea bass... More
