Food was excellent and the host, who had lived in Norwich and London was passionate about the food and wine he served us.

A delightful restaurant with warm ambience and very welcoming waitstaff. Our waitress was so personable and energetic, and she helped my daughters (one celiac, one lactose-intolerant) find meals that were safe and delicious. We started with ceviche, which was excellent, and our various entrees of seafood were very tasty too. Dishes are simple, but done very well.

We had a very good dinner here. We originally went because a review in our travel book said they brewed there own beer. It turns out they don't but we stayed and enjoyed our meal. The service was good as were our entrees. The ceviche was really delicious as a starter. I would definitely recommend dining here.

We strolled in after arriving to Valpo and had one of the best meals in Chile. My osso bucco melted in my mouth. The cheesecake was like nothing I've had back home. A little on the high side but definitely worth the treat.

This time being our last week in Chile, we decided to pay them a visit and wow, if we liked it before, this time we found it simply FANTASTIC. Food was delicious, we had ceviche and pulpo as starters, then the... More

Our hotel recommended that we go here as it was easy to walk to and did good food. We were not impressed with the outside, but once insider the waiter was friendly and helpful. We both had the special that night a skewer of different meats and vegetables barbecue. Plenty to eat, good portions. I tried an ice cream made... More

The cod was great. I particularly liked the salsa? and chili spice provided with dinner. The waitresses were fun and very prompt and helpful.

This is a wonderful unique little restaurant. No doubt, this is the result of a very personal vision and effort. The menu had a bunch of things we would like to try. Our food was delicious. The service was friendly, personal and professional. The one problem was that I found it very difficult to sing along with the Beatles background... More

Maybe we did have somewhat high expectations for our visit, as we did read many good reviews on the restaurant on trip advisor and lonely planet, but having toured the country for three weeks, did we really have a good feel for what is good and not and much can be charged for it. Unfortunately was the kitchen in our... More
