This was by far one of the most delicious dinners we had during our three-months trip to South America. We had an amazing onion soup, tuna steaks and three flavours of creme brulee as a dessert (vanilla, el calafate and dulce de leche). Each course was a work of art. The chef skillfully combines French and local cuisine, we are... More

This was an unexpected gem in Puerta Arenas. The food was delicious. I am lactose intolerant and the chef came out to discuss the menu with me and make some recommendations. Everything was wonderful including the wine recommendation.

Nice to have a change of cuisine (no pun intended) in Punta Arenas and this is a French-Chilean restaurant with a variety of dishes. It is not very big and was quickly filled when we were there, which made the service lag a bit (especially towards the end with dessert and coffee). The staff were friendly.

We are twice at this restaurant while in Punta Arenas and each time was excellent. We had sea bass, scallops, and guanaco the first night and they all exceeded expectations. We had gone to three other restaurants before and they were mediocre at best though they were highly rated by Trip Advisor members. None could compare with Chef Eric and... More

The menu offered a wonderful selection. The escargot were prepared perfectly. However the king crab was above and beyond our expectations. They take it out of the shell and present it very appealing. The sea bass was very fresh and perfect sauce. The staff were warm and friendly and very helpful.

We found this restaurant and so glad we did. The decor was so becoming, french posters, paintings, and fabrics floating from the ceiling. We were two couples, we ordered escargot, foie gras, crab legs, oinion soup, and salmon. Of couse we also had red wine, white wine and champagne. All the food was delicious. The chef took a picture with... More

A genuine, fine French restaurant in Punta Arenas. Great entrees & desserts. Ours included rabbit, ribs & corvina. Plus desserts were excellent. I can't say enough about this place & it's delightful French owner.

This is one of the best restaurant suggested in the tripadvisor, so we tried it. The outside is nothing special. The food quality are up to the expectation, but I don't think it is excellent. Overall experience is good. Price are reasonable.

My husband and I were in Punta Arenas last week for two and a half days. We were there because we were departing on a cruise of Patagonia. The first night we were there I found a review of La Cuisine and wanted to try it. We arrived soon after they opened and were able to get a table -... More
