Save your money and not less important, save yourself agony, and avoid this place. Have a drink on the bar, if you must, but go no further. We were 2 people, both amazed with how distastefully all dishes were prepared. The cooks here must hate their jobs. The ingredients are not fresh, poorly cooked, and all radiate dismal London looks.... More

The menu was limited as they were out of 3/6 main entrees. The portions are very small and the prices much higher than other excellent restaurants outside of the area. The waitress did not inform us of any specials of the evening. We paid double of any restaurant in 4 weeks in Chile. There were 2 groups of customers who... More

We had walked past this restaurant several times and it looked nice. It advertised "Chilean Food" which, this being our first trip to Chile, is what we wanted so as it was reasonably ranked on TA we thought we would give it a go. We were not disappointed. Excellent shared Cerviche as starter followed by Tuna main washed down with... More

Although Valparaiso is a port on the Pacific Ocean, the seafood I ordered in various restaurants over the 8 days I was here was pretty awful. Fried, bready and full of bones. Inedible. My dinner the first night at Cafe Vanilo was perfect so after many disappointments I went back the last night, grateful to have again a well prepared... More

I had delicious octopus starter and a very tasty ossobuco de vacuna. My companion's fish however was rather dull.Good wine and excellent service which was relaxed and friendly.Seemed to close early possible because rock concert was about to start in the city.Very atmospheric and pleasant place.

Friendly and had a female singer with a good voice. Decent Pisco Sour. There didn't seem to be any other special features - just a relaxed bistro.

We discovered Café Vinilo on our 2nd night out & about in Valpo. We enjoyed our dinner, the staff and the atmosphere so much it became our "go-to-place” for dinner, for rest of our time in Valpo. Funky, chic, hip, trendy and laid-back with works by local artists adorning the walls. A creative menu, amazing dishes & fusion food. One... More

We stumbled on this place while looking for somewhere to eat on a Monday night [not an easy task]. The food was good [try the local rabbit] and, guided by our very knowledgeable server, we opted for a wine above the price we usually pay when we don't recognise a maker or grape. The wine was excellent! Background music was... More
