My wife and I were recommended Espiritu Santo by a Chilean sommelier when we told him we were visiting Valparaiso. Really high quality food and and great wine list with a lot of local wines that the owner said she gets to know the winemakers first before she will put them on the menu. Would highly recommend if you enjoy... More

This restaurant was tremendous. The ceviche and Abalon appetizers were the best I have ever eaten. Duck was prepared flawlessly.

They also have rooms. But we've been for dinner. Certainly one of the best dinning rooms on the Valparaíso hills. Lovely seafood; very nicvely cooked. Good cocktails and desserts. Highly recommended. You need a map (waze or google maps) in order to get there, if you're driving yourselves.

We came here for lunch and this place gets quite busy, probably due to its location and its reputation for great modern and fresh food. The service was efficient and friendly and we had a great experience here. I would recommend making a reservation to get a table for lunch.

We ended up here because it was just up the street from where we were staying and it was, hands-down, the best meal we've had in Chile! The service was impeccable and our server spoke excellent English, but we would have happily muddled through a translator app for this food. I started with the ceviche appetizer which was had all...

We were in the neighborhood, hoping for some vegetables, and TripAdvisor led us to this sleek, modern place. Terrific huge salad full of delicious veggies, nice glass of wine, and really great service. It's near Neruda's house and a great alternative to the home-style places you find all around.

This restaurant is close to the Pablo Neruda museum in Valparaíso, La Sebastiana and is nicely decorated (modern). The service is great and the food was spectacular. They also suggests a great wine pairing with our fish (Sauvignon Blanc from La Recova). We really enjoyed our visit. Highly recommended.

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful meal at this sophisticated but friendly restaurant in Valparaiso on our way back to Australia recently.Not speaking Spanish, the elegant and warm lady who ran the front of house slowly took us through the menu in English taking time to explain every dish. Her Son, I believe, is the chef. Our meals were... More

My girlfriend and I stopped in for lunch before visiting La Sebastiana a short walk up the hill. The interior decor was also beautifully designed but we opted for the fresh air of the small patio in the shade of the side of the building. We relaxed sipping on a local beer and glass of chardonnay. A pleasant conversation with... More
