If you are looking for a nice restaurant do dine, this is ok. But if you were recommended like we were, or read the reviews, watch out for not expecting a remarkable experience, because you won't find it. Todd came cold and the fish with no salt. Not to mention we were sit at the outside tables, as the host (not sympathic at all) said the inside table were reserved. We arrived at around 9pm and left about 11pm and the same inside tables were empty. Are they trying to pretend that you shall make a reservation, but in fact are not full at all ?

Big, beautiful and hip seafood restaurant located in a nice neighborhood of the city. We were there early and had very good service but it slowed down when it got really busy. Our waiter was friendly and accommodated our request for individual checks. The food was generally very good. The abalone appetizer was tasteless and chewy. I had the king crab pie which was very good with big chunks of crab. The seafood pil pil was delicious. The ceviche and other dishes were also good. The only other dish that was disappointing was the Coco rice.

Dined at this restaurant in March.

Loved everything about this place. The ambiance, the service and above all else the food!

We went as a group of four and decided to split all our appetizers and mains. Everything was delicious and the presentation was very nice.

For appetizers we had the seafood ceviche and octopus, both were incredible.

For mains, we had two types of sea bass, eel and a seafood medley. Each dish was amazing!

Dessert was also a treat. We had the ice cream with fruit and their meringue cake.

The restaurant also had a great wine selection. The waiter recommended two different bottles of wine (Carmenere). Both bottles were very good.

Not a single compliant, lovely dining experience. If we are back in Santiago we will be coming back!

Unbelievable the worst ever food (fish) I tasted in years

Smelly shrimp, smelly sauce and hard fish even with a knife difficult to cut a piece

What a disaster!

Not even one person could care about us even after they cleared our table with our plates untouched!

We tried to explain very politely but server said « sorry no English »

However 86 000 pesos later he was able to ask for 10% tips - we said no thank you, he seemed disappointed...

We were told this is one of the best fish restaurant in Santiago - I say impossible it is not true.

Everything except the device and food is very nice - should be a fishing museum instead of a restaurant - what a joke!

Nice ambiance, beautifully decorated, delicious sea food!
Definitely a place you can go back over and over if you are a sea food fan. If you are not, not much of a selection for other preferences...
