We went here as a family of four and received great service and excellent food. I have read a couple of the "bad" reviews here but we experienced none of that. The sea bass with capers was my choice for a main meal and it was an excellent dish. My daughter ordered the marinara soup and loved it.

We were staying at the Cabañas del Lago hotel, just a few blocks away from this restaurant. People from the hotel recommended this place and we decided to try it. My husband and my two young girls were with me. Excellent! We ordered machas a la Parmesana to start and it was rich, flavorful, decadent. My children ate French fries... More

I have always loved Chilean Sea Bass and was not disappointed with the one I had here at Casa Valdes. I would definitely come back here.The service was great and the food was scrumptious!

You would be advised to book as this place is popular and rightly so. It's in a great location over looking the lake and offers a fantastic range of locally sourced and beautifully prepared seafood and a great range of wine. The service is excellent but all this comes at a price. Three course dinner for two with wine will... More

This was the best fish restaurant we dined at during our 5 weeks in South America. A wonderful, very large menu, which did include non-fish dishes. All servings were quite large. We both had the chowder, which included generous portions of scallops, prawns & fish. It was very enjoyable, but left "no room" for another course. The wine list was... More

We were in a hurry and i did not send it back. The next day i was sick. Heavely. Learned two thing: always send it back when not... More

It's best to make a reservation for this "fine dining" restaurant. The service is excellent which is not the norm for Chile. The fish and seafood are superb as is the view across the lake.

I have been there with my girlfriend while staying in Puerto Varas and can confirm all the positive reviews. The mixed ceviche as a starter was simply excellent and it was very good quantity (at least being used to UK fish portions). Likewise the abalone as a main was very tender and very good tasting. We did not have dessert... More

This is an upmarket restaurant with prices to match but the food and service were so good that it was worth what we paid. There is an extensive fish menu and our choices were both superb. The wine list is interesting and we had some excellent local wines. The service was impeccable.

My friends and I visited Puerto Varas while in Chile and were impressed with the gorgeous waterfront. We discovered Casavaldes and were very lucky to be seated for dinner, since we found it was very popular and reservations were recommended. We did get the last table, which had a lovely view of the lake even though the restaurant is across... More
