Wonderful food on our way back to Santiago after 3 days of wine tasting. A really lovely place for lunch. We had simple but delicious food

Great ambiance, feels like you're eating out in the prairie. The meat was excellent and the best empanadas de pino (Beef, Egg, Olive) I had in Santiago. The home-brewed beer was pretty solid too. Great lunch stop after the visit to the Concha y Toro winery.

We went tot the restaurant because Chelsea Mateo was roasting beef on the spit. The bull roast seemed like a local social event. We stayed inside because it was cold, but the locals kept drifting in and then going outside to drink and so socialize. We indulged in an array of salads, wine and roasted beef, chicken and salmon, along... More

This is a typical weekend country family restaurant. Wooden tables out on the dirt flor. A Chilean cowboy with his guitar singing old local tunes, big grill inside where they make the "asados" and their very own bruery. The bier is surprisingly good and it is the perfect companion to the "empanadas de pino", pino is the stuff the empanadas... More

Outside the main town this restaurant has about 100 covers but, we were the only ones there; and it was high season. The huge steaks were cooked well. The onions and eggs were over cooked and there were so many poorly cooked chips they were falling off the plate. The single waiter seemed to have difficulty in taking our order... More

Mostly beef and traditional Chilean food. Good beer and drinks in general (they offer pints of craft beer which is great, I hate having to pay extra for the same bottle I can buy at the store). Prices are good (350gr rump steak for about $10.000) and the decoration is very traditional

We were brought here as part of our private wine tour.this is pretty much a tourist trap but we did see a lot of locals eating here also. The food was really tasty. The prices were not super expensive for the quality. We tried the cheese empanada and it was very tasty. Overall a great place to eat. The beer... More

Great ( but not incredible) lunch with a salad mix as starter. Meat and rice for main course and a leche asada (close to a flan). with a pico sour ( not great). Service is OK but could be seen as insistent. The show is fine.

My husband and I were there before heading to the "concha y toro" winery tour. The place it's amazing. You feel inside a classic chilean country house. The food is really good and plus, they make their own beer. The only thing that they could improve are the bathrooms. They are clean and everything but that building is not heated.... More

While waiting for our tour the driver suggested this place. The service was horribly slow but the experience was great. We were able to see the typical dance of chile and entertained by a guitar playing gentleman. It felt like eating with a super large family. I definitely would recommend if you want that kind of experience.
