The place is small but cozy and well served. The food was excellent: we tried the king crab lasagna, the lamb and the duck confit. All were really great. Good prices for great french cuisine. The creme brulee trio for desert was awesome.

Not haute cousine, but definately one of the better dining options in Punta Arenas. It stands out among the standard Chilian restaurants and is not too expensive (9.000-12.000 for mains). But also not so much an unforgettable experience

We ordered things off of all parts of the menu here. Everything is good but the meats section, particularly the hare and the duck with orange were SO good. Also, they have a super reasonably priced 3 course with drink menu for lunch each day.

You could call them perhaps. Punta Arenas is small -- I am confident you could walk right in without a wait. I like your organization though!
