I expected this restaurant to be more about the views than the food, but wow was this place terrible. The menu is bare bones and, frankly, awful. The fish was tough and bland, accompanied by fries that clearly came straight from the freezer aisle. And...More

My husband and I enjoyed a great meal at this restaurant. They didn't have a few things on the menu but what they did have was fresh and tasty, huge portions ina lovely setting.

The fish at this restaurant is extremely fresh and the setting could not be better. It is located on the scenic bay in Zapallar so the views are stunning!

Truly wonderful (but expensive) seafood, fabulous setting, great way to spend time after the drive from Vina Del Mar and exploring the area. We shared the fried congrio and loved it. The mixed seafood appetizer was just as good.

We ate here twice. The seafood was fresh and nicely prepared. Very good service. We ate outside on the terrace overlooking the cove. One suggestion: some Chileans love to smoke and they can only do so outside. The first night we wound up directly next...More

It has been a while since we were here. So, we were anxious to learn if it still holds our previous experience! Ghiringuito comes from the Cuban language referring to a small establishment for business where they also provide food and drinks. The place is...More
