Never I ate good in this place, pure show. Dry fish, because I choose a dry variety ?! Doubteble fresh salads, nearly cold meat Slow but friendly, expensive and NOT worth the money. People imagine it's good ONLY because of the PRICE.

Yes, the setting right next to the sea is great. Looking at the menu, they propose many interesting fish dishes... tried the congrio a la mostaza and the caldillo de congrio (soup). Especially the latter can be recommended. Service lacks attentiveness and friendliness.

Wide range of local and Chilean sea food in excellent preparations. Good selection of wines, beers and juices. The prices are a bit expensive but according with the level and in line with other similar Chilean restaurants.

A lot of staff, but our suggestion would be to invest a little bit more in decent cooking. No fantasy at all and the catch of the day was probably done at the other end of the world.
