Liked everything about the restaurant: a nice place with pelicans sitting and flying near by, excellent service with recommendations, delicious fresh seafood, great atmosphere of the place, even the small pelican drawings in the menu were so cool! Definitely recommended to have lunch or dinner...More

The restaurant is nice, long waiting time if you do not have reservation. The service is adequate and the food quality is very good. Overpriced, as in 3 months they should need to cover the expenses for the entire year.

This is kind of *the* place in Zapallar, very similar to Carmel by the Sea in California, but without any remnant of funk, just the $$$. There aren't a whole lot of options for eating here, frankly, but in this case, that's a good thing...More

I have had a historic attachment to El Chiringuito (note: for legal reasons, they recently shortened the name to "Chiringo"). I have come here every so often for the past 20 years and was pleased to see that they have been able to maintain the...More

El Chiringuito in Zapallar has a superb view and the food was very good but too pricey. I enjoyed the crab soufle and the ever delicious seafood appetizers, and then we were hit with a CL$190,000 tab which we thought was too steep for 4...More

This place is always great. We have been here 3-4 times and it has always delivered. While I think the food might be slightly better here than Cesar, the prices are also slightly higher. When traveling with young kids, this place can be a little...More

The location of this restaurant is simply spectacular. It is right beside the ocean on a section of land that juts out very slightly so the dining area is almost surrounded by rocks with waves crashing close by. You have a choice of eating outside...More

If you go to Zapallar go there, simple fresh seafood in a great location. A little pricey but with not so many options, a place that will not let you down. We had the control and fried shrimps, all super yummy!

Recommended to us by my daughter (her favourite restaurant in Chile) Chiringuito had a lot to live up to. And it succeeded brilliantly. Of course, the location is a key element. Projected over the rocks looking over the Bay of Zapallar and the Pacific beyond...More
