After our meal at Café Export we can't believe this place isn't higher up on tripadvisor!
We had the set menu which gave you two choices for starter and main plus a dessert. There are some options for vegetarians/pescatarians. The whole staff was so friendly and made us feel very comfortable. The juices are freshly squeezed and taste amazing. Our portions weren't huge but as you get three courses (at the time of writing for 7000 CLP) they definitely filled you up more than enough. With a fireplace at the entry and nice decor it is a very cosy place (we went there quite early, around 7pm, I'm guessing it might get fairly busy later on).
The brownie for dessert was one of the best I've ever had!
All in all a great place with yummy food for a decent price (in an expensive town).

Cool decor, with a good happy hour menu during the evening. Place has a good vibe and some lovely open fire pits to keep you warm on them cold Atacama nights.

Highly rated in guide books, Export Bar is probably the only decent after-hours hangout in Atacama. Well, that's bad news if you're a night owl because every single tourist in Atacama must have been there the night my friends and I were there. Our hostel told us this was a regular occurrence. As a result, we waited over an hour to place our orders and for our dinner to arrive. The food was decent, as were the drinks but quite frankly, the bar is overrated. We were in a large group and some of our dishes arrived cold while others were lukewarm.

Note: Some people in our group also fell ill the next day - we were not able to tell if it was the food at Export Bar or breakfast, which comprised a couple of slices of bread.

This place is unfortunately the only thing open in San Pedro on a Saturday night.
For this reason the door staff take it on themselves to become obnoxious, power hungry and rude.
If the place is full, ask people to queue and let them in as people leave, shouting at potential customers is unacceptable.
The beers are expensive, the food poor and the atmosphere is average (people jumping around) until you are ushered to sit down several times during a night while the cops pay a visit.

Overall, probably the worst bar we've had the pleasure of visiting on our trip.

Great drinks (try the Pisco Sour - amazing!), super friendly staff and cool music - we had lots of fun spending our time there! It's the place to be when you wanna know what happens after the last round.
