Based on the reviews, my husband and I ventured over to Erdiko. It is located in a residential area, a few blocks from the Casino and other fast food restaurants. Our server was very helpful and spoke English. We started with their version of Pisco Sours. They tasted fresh with the perfect balance of egg white, pisco, lemon (lime) and sugar. We started with venison carpaccio & cerviche, then on to the oil fish & tuna. Each serving was prepared beautifully and each bite was full of flavor. Overall the food is creative and delicious! The interior is attractive, bordering on minimalist. Very calming. They have a good wine list and our waiter guided us through the list.

Through friends we had heard about Erdeko in Vina del Mar.
At first walking by the restaurant we almost ignored it as it blended in so well with the neighbourhood we were all walking through.
On entry we were warmly welcomed by the hostess and we had the versions of Pisco Sours that they offered. As we were reviewing the menu we looked up and there was the Chef Giuliani (sp?) of the restaurant. We all had a good conversation with him on what was fresh in the kitchen and we all went with his recommendations. After Chef Giuliani left I believe his business partner came over and discussed the wine pairings of which we went with his recommendations.
When the appetizers came followed by the meal we were really impressed with the presentation and how everything was plated. Suffice to say recommendations exceeded our expectations as each taste blended into the next. Wine pairings complimented the meals and than some.
We forced ourselves into the desert menus and again were absolutely impressed with the taste and presentation of same.
You will enjoy this restaurant for it's commitment for service and quality of its meals.
Well done and thank you for a great night.

This was, without a doubt, the best dining experience of our visit to this beautiful country. The food was exquisite and presentation outstanding. Chef Giuliano, with a vast amount of experience, was friendly, engaging and determined to make sure our meal was perfect. The ceviche trio for an appetizer was incredible as well as our friends beef carpaccio. Our entrees consisted of snapper, conger eel and steak, all done to perfection. Andres, the manager/sommelier was brilliant with his wine suggestions and made us feel so relaxed and comfortable. I must also agree with another reviewer that the pisco sours were the best. The four of us will definitely be back!!

My family and I planned to celebrate New Years Eve with what was a very delightful tasting menu made especially for the holiday at Erdiko. I really enjoy participating in tasting menus, they highlight a chef's talents so nicely. Each course was spot on at Erdiko, and the wine pairings - fabulous! We started with a delicious sparkling wine and appetizers including the best lentil soup I and my sister have ever tasted - I think it was topped with a lime foam. There was also a ceviche appetizer and a shrimp appetizer followed by a fabulous oyster appetizer. I am not a huge fan of oysters - I did however enjoy two of them! We moved on to a wonderful plate of lobster topped with mango and I think avocado followed by a very yummy pasta course - which I devoured and proceeded to take a few bites of my sister's! For the entree, Chef Andres was so accommodating. My sister and I don't eat red meat, so he made the best tuna steaks ever! They were perfectly cooked. Dinner of course ended on a sweet note with a lovely chocolate dessert - its hard to go wrong with chocolate - especially in my family :)

Let's not forget the wonderful Chardonnay and Carmenere that were served with the appetizer and entree courses - fantastic! I am so pleased that my family and I spent the special holiday at Erdiko - it was certainly a memorable dining experience. Andres came up to our table to explain the courses - what a great host! It was a truly special way to end 2011.

We had some trouble finding the restaurant, but it was well worth the effort. Note that if you use the maps option in TripAdvisor to GoogleMaps, it displays the restaurant one block further north than it actually is. The service was friendly and attentive, the cocktails were superb, and the food was very creative, flavorful and well balanced. If you enjoy experiencing new flavors you will not be disappointed.

We are very glad to hear you about your great experience at erdiko.

Unfortunelly, we cannot change the location in the map, because Tripadvisor situates it, but we are working with them for impoving the location description and it will be right in a few weeks.

Best,
