Chilean food done right. Fresh wonderful preparations, great flavors, the fish is always fresh and wonderful. The salads are garden fresh and tasty. The homemade rolls are "pillows of heaven."

Diego's in an off the beaten track gem. Family owned the food is unique and flavorful and the service is cheerful and focused. I have tried more new dishes here then any other restaurant, because I've never been disappointed and the food is always delicious....More
