Our driver stopped here for a quick bite on our way to Torres del Paine. It offers simple breakfast and sandwiches. While everyone was very nice, there is nothing remarkable about the food here.

Read this, it is entertaining. 1. THEY TRIED TO KEEP US HOSTAGE. No exaggeration. 2. The water is yellow and has black pieces. It smells bad. You will not see this in the coffee they serve you. We have traveled the world and have never...More

We stopped here for lunch on our way to Torres del Paine and for breakfast on our way from the park. The lunch menu offered a limited number of sandwiches but they were generous with the food portion, i.e., not just bread, tasty, and nicely...More
