This tourist trap is lovely with waterfront views but the food was much less spectacular. The noise level was extremely high, the service slow. It was very expensive for what we got. Would not recommend this place.

We normally stay away from these places but our guide took us here. It's a production line of tourists which is offputting. However we couldn't fault the food or the prices or the view. So overall worth coming. For us it would of been a nice place to have a leisurely dinner rather than lunch

This castle by the Pacific is beautiful. They are equipped to handle large crowds or singles with professional service. The views of the ocean are stunning from the restaurant. The menu is varied and exotic. And the desserts....ah! A truly memorable experience. The prices were high end but worth it. Many thanks

Good service due to high costs, good food and Wine. The view is the most of this place. Tried the Centolla starter and it was really good

We were recommended here by our driver as 'The Best Seafood & Not very Expensive. Look, it's a nice location and a great view but we've had better seafood out of a fish and chip shop. Couple that with an over intensive waiter who was only interested in taking a quick order, getting the food onto the table and getting... More

The best seafood I have ever had. In particular the Conger fish soup. Actually everything is good here. Patrick our waiter did the best job he can, so friendly and sincere.

What a shame, what a disappointment, and worse, what a WASTE of two hours during my vacation. First, these owners/managers have managed to work out some deals with seemingly every local driver, cab, or bus company taking anyone to Valparaiso/Vina Del Mar area. They will tell you this place is great, just like they told us. Just like the photo,... More

During our stay in Santiago, we made a day trip to Valparaiso, and had lunch at the historic Castillo del Mar. The setting is beautiful, with a view of the Pacific Ocean and Peruvian Pelicans. You can also climb the tower for a bird’s eye view. For lunch, the seafood varies, but Conger with Shrimp Sauce and Panzoti with Crab... More

We are here with a large group of 7 and ordered a variety of dishes no one walked away in love with their food. Felt like a bit of a tourist trap..
