We came here three times in a week as the food was so good - we could find nowhere else in Talca up to the standard of this place. Would highly recommend the fish dishes, the risotto, steak and any of the salads. Also the amazing desserts. The only downside was the variable service. On the first visit it was impeccable but the second time we were on a table at the side and were very disappointed. The waiter brought us wine but it took 15 mins for it to be uncorked. We weren't brought the bread basket until our mains had already arrived. And the main course was cold and we had to send it back to be reheated! After all this the waiter added 10% service without even asking us, so we had to complain to get the money back. What was worse was that the lady on the till didn't seem to give a toss. We tried to explain that on our previous visit the service had been great but this time it was bad and didn't justify the tip. She just brushed us off and didn't bother to listen, clearly just thinking ' foreign backpackers, too cheap to tip'.
Despite this we came back a third time for the great food, and the service this time was perfect once again. Apparently the tables in the centre have the best waiters!

This place has become really popular with locals since it opened a few months back. On fact, it's become so popular that you will probably need a reservation on Friday nights.

Most new restaurants inTalca don't bother too much with decor, but this one is well designed, with matching colors for walls, napkins and even artwork. The food is well-prepared (you can tell that there is a trained chef in the kitchen) but it is by no means "special". The portions are huge.

Problems: It's noisy, very noisy. First, because the ceiling has a weird tent-like shape that throws noise all around the restaurant. And secondly, because the big portions tend to attract big groups of local business people and government agents, who seem to enjoy speaking as loudly as possible.
