Our guide took the group here for lunch on our tour of Valparaiso and Santiago. The empanadas were good. I personally preferred the cheese empanada because the crust was more flavorful. To me, the meat version had a disproportionately large amount of crust and the meat filling was a bit skimpy in comparison. The portions here are pretty large, so... More

Have the beef empanada (watch for olive pits) and the corn and chicken pie. Cheese empanada and asada pobre were only ok. Avocado 'salad' is just sliced Avocado. Patio dining out front is nice on a warm day.

It looks like a very large palapa as you drive up. The floors are a combination of tamped dirt and tiles giving it a very rustic feel. The waiters are all males dressed in traditional “Huaso” costumes. We were somewhat daunted by the size of the menu and the fact that it was Spanish but the waiter explained any questions... More

We hired a driver to take us to visit a Chilean winery and take us to Santiago for our departure the following day. In discussing the winery, my husband said he didn't want to do wine tasting, so that meant it would just be lunch. Our drive asked if we would like to try some authentic Chilean fare. We jumped...

If you want traditional Chilean food in a rustic environment outside Santiago, and hosts serving you in traditional country-side "Huaso" costumes, you must visit this place. Not only you will have traditional home-type country style chulean food, but you also have traditional Chilean music in a nice and unpretentious place. Nothing fancy about this place, but the whole experience was... More

Ate her with a group of 6 on the way to Santiago. We were all quite pleased with atmosphere and the quality of the food.. I had the corn pie which was different and quite good. Others tried the empanadas and 'stew.' All the food was tasty and enjoyable. I thought the price was a bit high - but not... More

Mineral water, beer, costillar, Choclo, Ensalada for $23,815. No idea if that truly is high for Chile.(but we will learn as we go) All I can say is we enjoyed our lunch while on our way into Santiago. The choclo had sugar not salt sprinkled on the top. Nice roadside country restaurant. We were the only tourists, but the place... More

Good but very expensive I stopped for a lunch in Hornitos coming back from Valparaíso and I liked what I saw. Good decoration, nice reception but very touristy and expensive. The quality is good but in other time I would wait more and eat in Santiago.

This place used to be good and have reasonable prices. Nowadays it is bloated with tourist buses, waiters have lost patience, prices are ridiculously high. Definitely not recommendable.
