I have visited this restaurant before on previous visits to Temuco. If you like good steaks, La Pampa is highly recommended. The Bife de Chorizo is of excellent quality and cooked EXACTLY to your requirements. The service is quick and the staff very helpful. Don't pass through Temuco without having a meal here. ANDY S.

I had a ribeye cooked to perfection. La Pampa is a steak house but has a large menu. Great ambiance. They had 5 cabernets by the glass. I tried 3 but they were of average quality. Next time I will order a whole bottle to get something better.

La Pampa is an excellent Argentine style parrilla with Chilean meat. The atmosphere is very nice, tastefully decorated (Mapuche themes). There is also some seafood on the menu. The food is excellent; there are several wonderful choices of Chilean wines with very reasonable prices. It is really a very good option to eat well in Temuco.

I have been a fan of Rest La Pampa for very many years. Highly recommended, it is hard to find in Chile a restaurant where you can eat such a delicious Bife de Chorizo. Great food. The new premises are very welcoming!

This is an spectacular meat restaurant, born in 80´s, Argentinian owners, they change the way of eat, with quality, excellent service and the best meat offer. Rates are higher than the media zone restaurants, but if you want quality, you must pay for it. So, your stay in Temuco should not be completed if you don´t go to La Pampa... More

I understand that Chile is generally more well known for its seafood but if you want a break from fish this is an excellent place. It was the best steak I ate during 2 weeks in Chile. It is expensive but it is worth it.

La Pampa is the place to go to if you're feeling like diving in meat. The restaurant has a rustic charm, enhanced by wood and beams, and service is efficient and courteous. The selection of wines looked very good and the wine I had was just perfect for my dish. I had Asado de Tira, cooked to perfection. The only... More

The rating is based on where I perceive this restaurant is trying to compete. My impression is that it has positioned itself as an somewhat upscale location that is used as a lunch and dinner meeting place for the business community. The decor is okay for that market niche. Seating was a little tight. The atmosphere is pleasant. The food... More

Good asado de lomo, fine Service . Location good, easy to park . The beef are prime, salad ok, ask for the potato and butter soft and tasty. I didn't try dessert, couldn't eat more. Wine is expensive so try at your budget.

A stylish and welcoming steak house. They moved recently to this adress San Martin 135. The meals are big and delicious, the meat grilled at the point. If you like meat and need a change from empanadas definitively recommended.
