Stopped there accidentally and had just a salad with salmon and roquefort cheese. It was very good and sitting outside on a lovely evening was the cream on the cake.

Nice selection of pizzas and beers. Sitting outside I think is preferable to being indoors (went twice and tried it both ways). The location is very convenient downtown. As with many Chilean restaurants the portion sizes are very large, we had a grande and it was truly too much for two people. (but we ate it anyway)

While exploring the town I decided to stop in to try. You seat yourself either inside or on the patio outside. It is very casual and has a full bar. I ordered the Pisco Sour which seems to be very popular in Chile. It has a mild grape flavor and is delicious! This one was "frozen" slushy and tangy..excellent! I... More

Randomly found this place to have a quick meal. The pizzas and soup were surprisingly good. Great staff--friendly and attentive. Highly recommend for a simple meal.

We were in the mood for pizza and decided to order some pasta dishes instead. My partner had the ravioli and I had the cannelloni. Both were flavorful, hot and fresh. This is a casual place with good food, attentive service and an acceptable wine/beer/liquor menu.

I usually say that there is no such thing as too much cheese. There is. The crust was probably nice and crispy, but there was an overflow of only slightly melted cheese. Had to scrape most of it of to make it at least eatible.

I love this place. Not just to eat. Sometimes I have to work, so go there to write and sip a vino upstairs listening to their funky tunes with views of the lake. It's a great friendly place that always smells appetising and is really well priced

Known for its pizza, but when last visited, I had a Spanish platter of meat and other stuff with 2 bottles of promoted local beer, and it was delicious!!!

Went for dinner but had to eat again that night as the portions were so small. They also brought out the wrong meal at first so we had to wait for the correct meal to be prepared. Reasonably tasty but felt we could have cooked it ourselves. We were up sold on a bottled beer that wasn´t very nice over... More

We ate at Parentesis on two different nights during our stay in Puerto Varas. The service here is pretty quick (unless you sit at the table closest to the door - the waiters all ignore anyone who sits at that table.) I think we placed our ordered at 6 PM, and by 6:30 we paid the bill and left. Like... More
