Outside the view is SO great, at the border of Lago Llanquihue; inside the -Cordero- was amazing! The decoration very rustic and the service great too! Has a little shop where you can buy gourmet mustard, chocolates & other delicious things! If you're going to the south of Chile, don't miss this stop

We arrived exhausted after over a day of traveling. We had a fabulous lunch. Service was attentive, place was quiet on a weekday afternoon. Our lack of Spanish wasn't a problem.

The menu is interesting and include Chile favorites. I had a cream of almejas (mussels) soup and merluzza with risotto. My wife had a pork loin entire. Both were served hot and tasted great. My pisco sour was also top notch.

5 stars! Meli is a great restaurant by any means. The atmosphere is special and a romantic yet also genuine. You enter a hall with home made or natural olive oil/jelly/ chocolate/ candles who have Meli's branding and proceed to the restaurant itself which is cozy and welcoming. The restaurant is located right at the lake and opens for dinner... More

I spent nearly a month in Frutillar on business. There were many dining experiences but the Meli was by far the best. The food was excellent. Such a quiet friendly atmosphere with a great variety of gourmet dining both lunch and dinner. I was always greeted with a smile and professional service. While in Frutillar, one must try the Meli...

I came here twice in July, once with my family and once solo. Both times food and service were great. Salmon and ceviche in particular were very good. Also the woman who waited on our family was terrific with our (very tired) kids. Great atmosphere/setting, too.

We were staying in Pto. Varas and went to Frutillar for the day. At lunch we were caught up in a heavy summer shower... What a surprise we got at Meli! Fantastic lunch for the family. Great food, great decoration, great service. Most recommendable.
