Went as part of a 12-strong group. Pleasant atmosphere; great views;slow service. Food was basic and unimaginative, as is common in Chile, My Vegan wife was stuck with a basic salad (as most other days of the trip).

Chile is usually full of good food all around, service is another good quality in all the restaurants that we have visited so far.
Unfortunately, this restaurant is the exception.
We were seated right next the window with a beautiful ocean view, "but" the experience was a disaster. The steak was dry, the conger was dry, and they charge for everything separate. The service is terrible. (10 min waiting for a cup with ice).
There was no friendly service at all, it looks like the waiter was upset every time we asked for something, My kids at a point asked me if they were upset with us because we were asking them for extras.
If you are going to eat at Caleta Portales , please pick a different restaurant.

Recommended by the receptionist in our hotel. Nice harbor view from the restaurant. Staff is very friendly but unfortunately does not speak any English. English menu is available though. The free bruschetta antipasto is very good. Ordered seafood soup (phila marina) and crab cake. The latter one is a must try. A full pot of crab meat cooked in light cream. Mark this place when you're in Valpo.

I went with my family and the atmosphere is very good, you can enjoy a beautiful view to the ocean. The service is phenomenal and the staff is very friendly.
