Really cool place, with great atmosphere and best chorrillana I tried in Chile. Also the place itself is one of the most unique restaurant I've ever been to.

The atmosphere is great, you can really feel what Valparaiso and its history are like. You can enjoy a great typical chorrillana (chips with egg and meat) and beer.
