Came here for lunch after climbing San Cristóbal Hill. Delicious! We had a bit of a difficult time communicating because our Spanish is terrible. Ended up ordering a beef dish, fish special, potatoes and vegetables as side dishes. I had a cocktail, glass of wine...More

Three of us had lunch midweek. Only people in the place. It was a very hot day and we were seated quite pleasantly in 'the coolest' part of the place, and the air conditioning was turned on nearby just for us. So that is a...More

As with most of Chile, nothing is mind blowing on the food scene. Small portions and blah service plus higher prices.

With all the "international" cuisine in Santiago, we wanted some Chilean food. This place met all our expectations. I had chicken stuff with bacon and some sauce. Decent price, and in a great neighborhood (Bellevista).

This place was recommended to us by a tour guide at the nearby park, when asked about a place that serves typical local fare. It was indeed a very fortunate recommendation, with friendly service, very tasty food (ceviche to die for) and very reasonable prices...More

Friends from Canada recommended El Caramaño Restaurant, so we drove down one evening for dinner. We can't say enough good things about our experience. The food was delicious, portions generous, and the price was outstanding. Now we recommend the restaurant to our friends and family

I went on a weekday and with a reservation for a family lunch celebration. The service was horrifyingly slow, adding to the fact that the waiters (because for some reason they kept rotating, when the place wasn't even at 50% of its capacity) answered evasively...More
