One of the best meals we have had in Chile and Argentina. Well worth the effort finding the restaurant which is in a residential area, several blocks from the ocean.

You can't go wrong dining here!!!

Thanks to fellow reviewers, we specifically sought out Erdiko for dinner, and I'm so glad we did!
We made reservations for Thursday night dinner, but apparently, September is "off-peak" season so it wasn't busy at all. We were greeted and served by Andres, one of the owners, who thankfully spoke English and was able to give us excellent recommendations.

Food: For our appetizer, we had the duck confit wonton ravioli, which was perfectly matched with a cherry tomato (?) reduction. For our main courses, we asked Andres for his favorites. We had one of the fish dishes (starts with a "b" - bilanga?) that is caught locally by harpoon divers. Pan seared to perfection, accompanied by quinoa and tiny clementines. He also recommended the Garreon de Ternera, which is basically slow-cooked beef made into a terrine, accompanied by shitake mushrooms and marscapone cheese. Amazing! We had a great Chilean cabernet sauvignon (I know, a bit heavy for the fish, but my husband didn't seem to mind) and we were stuffed by the end of the meal. Wished we had left room for dessert - another time!

Ambiance: Sleek, hip NYC vibe - apparently a young local designer helped style the space - they did a great job with the lighting fixtures, white/dark contrasts, and stylish lounge seating. Though we didn't have any cocktails, the bar was very well stocked and I can see how this would be a hotspot during peak season.

Value: My husband and I agreed that for the high quality of food (fresh ingredients, inventive pairings, and well-matched flavors), the care and art of presentation, and the generous serving sizes, the price of this meal was more than fair. We could easily see paying 30-40% more for this meal in San Francisco (where we're from).

Bottom line, we had the most wonderful experience thanks to our attentive and friendly host Andres, and our incredible meal.

One of the best meals we had over six weeks in South America. The decor was inviting and comforting, the service was excellent, the meal was nearly perfect(especially the sauces!). Modern Peruvian-Chilean-Asian fusion cuisine in a fantastic setting a few blocks from the ocian. Go for the Pisco sours and the seafood!

We came here for a special birthday dinner, and enjoyed it very much. Our server was outstanding, and spoke English well enough to communicate fully. The cebiche was wonderful as a starter, highly recommended. We had different fish meals, and they were good, but would probably try something else next time. Adequate selection of wine, reasonably priced. Definitely recommend this restaurant!

Thank you Very Much for your comment!!!

We are very glad to read you did enjoy your experience with us. As you can know, Chile is a spanish sopken country, but we try to have a bilingual staff, some of our waiters has better level than others and we try to train every time we have availability.
Our fihes are local endemic, hunted by harpoon by our diver. Therefore we try to preserve all the essence just sealing and serving with very smooth sides. Otherwise we have different options, like French Duck, Fresh Homemade Pasta, Angus Beef dishes, Baby Pork, and others.
Ending April we will release our new menu, with more and better options for everyone, including more wine lebels and specials. We would like to see you very soon for showing our new concept in Fine Dinning Cuisine.

Warmest Regards!!!
