Chipe Libre has a wide variety of pisco flights and cocktails. My husband and I tried four different cocktails, and they were all unique and tasty. If you like to try new cocktails, this is the place for you.

For dinner, we ordered the ceviche, empanadas, and shirt steak. Having traveled around South America, the ceviche and empanadas were good but not anything extraordinary. My husband noted that the skirt steak was somewhat tough. Given the glowing reviews on TripAdvisor, we were a little disappointed with the food.

Great place for a drink - the terrace out the back is very nice. It was busy on a Friday night which gave it a great atmosphere. We ate here and the food was distinctly average particularly for the price but it’s a great place for a drink and to try Pisco!

This place is a rare gem - fluent in English, yet not a tourist trap; traditional dishes that haven’t been watered down for the masses; sever recommendations you feel you can trust - they ask what you like, rather than jumping straight to suggesting the most expensive item.
The back patio is an oasis of calm, like you’ve left the city behind you.
They lift pisco above the realm of being the mere base to a sour, to being a fully-rounded taste in itself, which was eye-opening to me. A bit like if you’d always had Bloody Marys and suddenly you learn you can use vodka in other ways. I had the equivalent of a pisco and tonic, which was exceptional, gently flavoured with grapefruit peel and a sprig of rosemary. Stunning.
The food is equally strong. Traditional ceviches pop with complex flavours and fresh seafood.
Top it off with traditional desserts and you’ve found yourself a winner.
Excellent value for the money.

Cute restaurant with an awesome ambience. We tried several different entrees and they were all great.
We also tried a flight of the pisco, they explained the region and how potent they were and why. I thought that was neat.

Food was delicious! Crevice was delicious! Split the empanadas appetizers with my friend, Ickes and half beef--the beef was by far our favorite. Their outdoor patio has such a great ambiance. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Good sized portions of food for good prices.
