Small restaurant in a beautiful location. We ordered the Reineta (fish) with spicy mashed potatoes and Carne al Jugo (meat), both very tasty and original. Great service. The place is decorated all around with colorful paintings from a man that works there. Very good value-price relation, it is not expensive for the location (20.000 CLP for two w/beer and tip)

We went here for dinner our first night in Valparaiso based on the hotel's recommendation. The food was good and the prix fixe meal was very reasonably priced. The atmosphere is fun and casual. An enjoyable evening.

My family and I were on vacation in Valparaiso last week and were looking for somewhere to eat. I came across this restaurant and instantly fell in love with the concept: The Painter's Cafe. We made our way up Cerro Alegre to find this cute cafe and were immediately greeted by the painter. As we headed inside, the sweetest lady... More

A small, vibrant little place that hums with energy. A painter was busy painting the door as we arrived...hence the name. The staff are very friendly and attentive. The food was very tasty, portions were just the right size, spiced well and hot. Prices were reasonable. Well worth a stop.

Walking around Cierro Alegre I spotted this little restaurant, it presented some beautiful paintings on its walls that perfectly matched its name Cafe del Pintor (Coffee of the Painter in English ). I was curious and I decided to have dinner there, it was a very good experience and I returned also the following day. Despite there were some tables... More

Cosy place all painted by an artist. Food is really good and the price is cheap for the area. We had lunch once and came back 2 days later for dinner .

Based on reviews I gave this place a try on a Tuesday night around 9:30p. I was a bit taken back to be the only person in the restaurant but too tired to go somewhere else. Based on other reviews I ordered the set menu with the vegetable cream, beef stew, and caramel chocolate mousse. It was all delicious. The... More

This restaurant has great food with fresh ingredients. They serve fish, meat and vegetarian dishes and I even got a vegan one :) Inside they have a very nice wall painting and a friendly atmosphere. The money-for-value is very good. Thumb up!

We had a great lunch here. The service was superb. The fish, fresh and beautifully well cooked with a superb "risotto" type accompaniment. Wine good and inexpensive. Just can't fault it. Payment by cash only, just as you would expect in a small, good family restaurant

We visited this place refered to tripadvisor's reviews. But we disappointed so much. They served wrong dishes even more too late. And they didn't receive credit card even though it was posted that they receive credit cards.
