We had a very late lunch (4pm) here: empanada de locos, mixed salad, grilled corvina with potatoes, grilled hake with potatoes. All simple but tasty. We sat on the terrace: the view is amazing, in the very middle of the beach, 180 degrees full view! For dessert it was difficult to choose, for all the kuchen, the tortas and the... More

Restaurant Bahia Puñihuil is a great restaurant to visit before or after an exciting visit to the Penguins. I recommend to do it after just in case you get sea sick :). It has an excellent view of the beach from anywhere you sit. The fresh seafood and the "empanadas" are good. Do not miss this!

This is where we arranged the penguin tour as well as having lunch. Beautiful view and great fresh seafood. We had hake, salmon, and sea bass. Nice service.

This is not a posh restaurant. It's good home cookin' at a place with a gorgeous view of the Islotes de Punahuil and caters exclusively to folks that come out to do the boat tour of the penguin nesting grounds. That being said, if you want the best empanadas you're likely to taste in Chile, come here. The wait can... More

The resturent is located on the upper floor and you get nice views of the sea and the sorroundings. The food is fresh and resonably priced. We had cheese empanadas, salad and grilled fish all tasted resonably good.

After or before viewing the penguins, don't miss this restaurant... Empanadas are excelent, notably the one's with locos... But the chilean salad is more than decent and the congrio exceptional... Very good beers and good glass of wine. The view is unbeatable...
