Overall a very frustrating and embarrassing experience. Having been advised by a hapless waiter to change our choices whilst ordering we waited for over 40 minutes for our starters to arrive only to be served out main course choices. On notifying the waiter that we had not received our starters he promptly told us that the main course dishes were... More

It's off a busy street, arrived on a Saturday night, prices and food selection looked good for Santiago, so went in. Once you went down a few steps in the restaurant you were in a new little world, classic French music, beautiful setting, relaxing, friendly knowledgable multi lingual staff helping any español mistakes. The food, Pepper Steak was absolutely sublime!!!... More

This family owned restaurant is a classic and well kept secret in Lastarria neighborhood. French menu in a small and cosy local are really a place to visit. Good french dishes and selection of drinks and wines.

Friendly staff and owner presence. This ensure the quality of service. I would recommend a couple of dishes: onion soup and steak au poivre.

As its name says this is an assassination to the French Cousine. Very pricey for the food quality. We got different kind of steaks and all of them were extremely cooked (considering we ordered rear and medium). We tried the different sauces (pepper, red wine, roquefor), nothing special. That day they run out of potatoes!! So we couldn't try the... More

When the people running an establishment look like they are dragging themselves through the evening, it's not surprising that the food reflects the boredom. It's a shame because there are good flavours in the food, let down by the slapdash presentation and perfunctory service.

Great food and a beautiful little place. The owner was so friendly. He was about to close for mid day but saw we were hungry and thirsty and let us order some fantastic appetizers. Get the snails!

Had a lovely dinner with a friend on our first night in Santiago, and highly recommend this restaurant. There is lots of seafood on their menu. The food was very good, and, though it is small, the restaurant is very nice. Staff was very hardworking and friendly!
