Fantastic pisco sours and great food. A MUST place to eat. Great place both for lunch and dinner. Make reservation in advance due to popularity.

The food was mostly excellent here, especially the cerviche and the desserts were exceptional. We did try the infamous guanaco stew,which honestly was a little chewy and tough. Otherwise everything was very good and the staff are very friendly and nice.

Best food of my trip. Bilingual menu and wait staff. Vegetarian options. Regional meats and seafood. Try the rabbit stew! And the atmosphere....art everywhere. The family is on-site and friendly. Cash only but accepts US dollar or Euro.

I think this is a "must see" place in Punta Arenas. They serve great food even for vegetarans which is quite unique in chile.

A very nicely decorated restaurant with lots of character and good service. Pricing is similar to eating at a decent North American restaurant (Our bill came to 70$ for two people). We enjoyed the soups and king crab entire along with mate creme brûlée and...More
