Wide range of local and Chilean sea food in excellent preparations. Good selection of wines, beers and juices. The prices are a bit expensive but according with the level and in line with other similar Chilean restaurants.

The Maracuya is a very nice and nicely located at the seafront. The fish we ordered was excellent and the dishes nicely presented. The waiters all wear a 'little man in the ear', which looks impressive! The 'little man' seems to be a devil, sending...More
