This is a delightful break after a morning of floor-pounding amidst the museum's wonderful exhibits. Waiters are fast, ice is on offer and coffee is well made in many varieties (we tried four).

Nice place, with great service. Good food and good menu for lunch. Is a great location to make a stop in downtown. Hoping they are going to be more careful the next time, considering I found a hair in my plate! They changed it, but I did not receive any discount for the bad moment.

We've been living here in Santiago for about a year now, and learned that regarding service is very important to carefully select the places where we want to eat.

After spending time looking at art it is very nice to sit and have a good cappuccino and a lemon beverage. When the waiter asked if I wanted sweetener in the lemonade I said no, WOW was it tart. Next time I will say yes to the sweetener

Nice setting. Takes credit cards. Simple cafe food. Malteds. Quiche. Panini. Salad. A bit pricey. Tip suggested is 10% throughout Chile restaurants.

I had drinks with my wife before visiting Pre-Colombian museum. It was Saturday afternoon and the cafe was full of the guests. We had waited for the table approx. for ten minutes. The atmosphere was sophisticated and we were relaxing in this cafe.

We went to look for this place on 9th May as it generally had good reviews and was just round the back of our hotel. We eventually found it round the back of some boarding and it was closed up. There is substantial building work in the area and everywhere is dusty.

Quiche never goes in the microwave! No beer or wine served. Salad was old and tired and bean sprouts were bad. Nice space and ok service but awful food.
