We are twice at this restaurant while in Punta Arenas and each time was excellent. We had sea bass, scallops, and guanaco the first night and they all exceeded expectations. We had gone to three other restaurants before and they were mediocre at best though they were highly rated by Trip Advisor members. None could compare with Chef Eric and... More

The menu offered a wonderful selection. The escargot were prepared perfectly. However the king crab was above and beyond our expectations. They take it out of the shell and present it very appealing. The sea bass was very fresh and perfect sauce. The staff were warm and friendly and very helpful.

We found this restaurant and so glad we did. The decor was so becoming, french posters, paintings, and fabrics floating from the ceiling. We were two couples, we ordered escargot, foie gras, crab legs, oinion soup, and salmon. Of couse we also had red wine, white wine and champagne. All the food was delicious. The chef took a picture with... More

A genuine, fine French restaurant in Punta Arenas. Great entrees & desserts. Ours included rabbit, ribs & corvina. Plus desserts were excellent. I can't say enough about this place & it's delightful French owner.

This is one of the best restaurant suggested in the tripadvisor, so we tried it. The outside is nothing special. The food quality are up to the expectation, but I don't think it is excellent. Overall experience is good. Price are reasonable.

My husband and I were in Punta Arenas last week for two and a half days. We were there because we were departing on a cruise of Patagonia. The first night we were there I found a review of La Cuisine and wanted to try it. We arrived soon after they opened and were able to get a table -... More

The French born chef puts a bit of a European spin on classic Chilean food. I had the escargots (much more French than Chilean) and the Sea Bass with ratatouille. Both were excellent. While it's hard to get anything in Chile that isn't well done, the fish was prepared properly leaving the necessary moisture.

Really good authentic french cuisine with emphasis on vegetables and their broth/sauce. Everything is great, from appetizer down to desert. Has foie gras, duck confit, etc. Opted for something with a local twist and centolla (chilean king crab variant) lasagna was delicious choice. Great choice of excellent and reasonably priced wines. Located in main restaurants street close to waterfront. Strongly... More

A must visit while in Punta Arenas! The ambiance is warm and cozy. The owner/chef took our order and ran to the kitchen only to serve us the most amazing dishes.
