The best pizza I had in a very long time even though this is not an italian restaurant. I asked for one with cheese and onion, and the person in front of me one with sour-cream and beacon (no cheese). The dow was so thin and the ingredients of such quality that I couldn't believe that such great food was in a shopping mall restaurant. The list of wines was impressive and the ambiance was friendly and alive. All this for a very reasonable price. The menu has many different options, from tapas to soups, salads, meat, fish, etc. I'll be back!

I went there mid-week (April 2012) with some Chilean colleagues, initially thinking it was just a wine bar with good tapas (it used to be that style before expanding to be a real restaurant).
The expanded menu covers not only a good selection of tapas and Chilean dishes, but some good steaks and other meats (e.g. chops), and fish too, as well as salads. The steaks are a good size (300-450g depending on the cut), and very well prepared and presented.
The wine list is impressively long, and reasonably priced. They sell by the glass and the bottle, and inside the restaurant there is a shop where you can buy what they sell on the wine list. When I was there they had a special offer - if you buy a bottle from a selected subset of the wine list, then you get another bottle free to take away of the same wine. Great idea.
Prices are very reasonable and the service was good.
The staff admit that they are not great wine experts, but they are friendly (not much English spoken though).
We arrived straight after work (7 p.m.) so there weren't many people around, but by 8.30 the place was full, inside and outside - unlike the other restaurants around them, so this place seems popular.
'Open' is part of a large shopping mall, but because of the location it's not inundated with shoppers passing by, and there are no shops visible from the restaurant - it looks like just a quiet terrace with other restaurants around.
I definitely recommend 'Open'. The food is good and the wine too. The atmosphere, especially outside, is good. And I liked the service too. In the past I loved Baco Bistrot, but they offer a very poor service these days, so go to 'Open' instead - I'm sure you will like it.

We've been there once with my family and basically haven't tried any other restaurants in Santiago because we keep coming back. There are types of food for every person and every occasion, pizzas, tapas, salads, meat, fish, pasta, just name it, and there will be something available for you at a reasonable price. The Ambiance at night is amazing, low lights good music and great food, it's hard to find another restaurant like this one in santiago.
Every wednesday, the restaurant organizes a degustation of wine (for free, as long as you eat something) and a great DJ will play live some lounge music.
Really, the Best in Santiago, there choice of wine is the biggest I've seen in a restaurant and at very abordable price.
A "Must Go, Must see"
