Over priced, grumpy staff and salty overcooked fish. No reverence for the gorgeous seafood and no attempt at being helpful. Avoid it.

Food was disappointing, fish was tasteless, it could look authentic but in my opinion is just a trick for tourist. They pass among the table singing and playing the guitar and they ask money like beggars (I hated it), they there disturbing and I think...More

Mercado Central is a must visit when in Santiago. Dominated by fish, it's a visceral experience of massive amounts of super fresh fish. There are numerous restaurants in the centre, all vying for your attention. We chose Donde Augusto by looking at what was being...More
