Fresh and good quality ingredients cooked with honesty and creativity. The tiradito was great, as well as the fish, but what really impressed me were the sweetbreads, absolutely divine. The espiritu santo cocktail was fresh and delicious. This place is a must if you visit Valparaiso and are interested in good food.

I enjoyed a lunch here on a sunny Saturday afternoon. Our party of 5 easily reserved one of the two outside tables, although there isn't much of a view. Initially, the service was prompt. Menus arrived quickly, drinks not far behind. The main dishes range in price from 12,900 to 14,800, among the priciest in Valparaiso. But I will not... More

We were staying at the Boutique Cabernet Hotel, just down the street, and didn't feel like going back into town. We had passed this restaurant a few times and thought we'd give it a try. It far exceeded any expectations we had. Both the physical space as well as the food were elegant. We shared a main dish of rock... More

The service was good and they have their own cocktail which is good. The dishes were creative and there was a variety. The deserts were less good. Take a taxi - don't walk there, the neighborhood is unpleasant.

We were staying just a bit further up the road from this restaurant and had been advised to go to another restaurant nearby. On finding it closed that day we were concerned as to where we would eat, having been told by our hotel that it was too dangerous to walk into town after 6pm and wary of taking a... More

We only stumbled across Espíritu Santo because, after our visit to La Sebastiana, we thought we'd have a look at the Parroquia Las Carmelitas. It was lunch time, we were both hungry after a morning meandering around the streets of Cerro Alegre and Cerro Bella Vista, they were just opening... So why not? What a happy accident. Furnished with a... More

A small and modern gem of a restaurant a comfortable walk from Neruda's house in Valparaiso. The food was truly delicious, lovingly prepared with fresh local ingredients. Our favourites were the amazingly tasty tongue starter and the exquisite oxtail ravioli. Great wines from the region. The staff were super-friendly and professional and we were greeted warmly by the owner who... More

Love this charming restaurant hidden in the residential area where you have to climb up the hill to get to. Great menu, great food and great service! The owner came to chat with everyone to make sure everyone was happy there! Highly recommend!

We were late for lunch -- the kitchen was already closed -- and still they accommodated us thanks to the owner Laura's attention. We loved the food! Most dishes it seems have rock fish in them. The two dishes we had, with rock fish, were exceptional, very different and very tasty. The desert with kumquats was amazing. The service excellent.... More
