Just 5 min. drive out of town, this small restaurant serves the best grilled beef in the region. With the charcoal grill in the middle of the restaurant, its a feast to have a superb meal with delicious side dishes, top Chillian wine and fantastic cheesecake as desert.

Simply the best steak ever. Love it that they don't serve starters because people didn't finish their steak when they did serve them in the past. Very nice owner as well who speaks English. You should defenatly go there.

INCREDIBLE STEAKS! Grilled bread to die for! Ribeye steaks grilled to order over an open flame. Sopapillas and grilled bread grilled over an open flame. Steaks as good as any in Texas! Ate there two days in a row! Good, solid wine list with Chilean wines. Will come back on our next trip to Chile.

The restaurant is a kind of barbecue in the dinner room of your house, with a nice bar and a lot of good wines to choose. The owner and his wife are taking care of you. You choose the type of beef and the size you want before they grilled them. Don't miss it if you visit Puerto Montt.

We reviewed this restaurant as part of research for a guidebook about the Carretera Austral, and this restaurant is on the very northern extreme of the Carretera. Vegetarians should not go - this is for meat-lovers only. We visited countless restaurants in Puerto Montt, and for steak this is by far and away the best. You select the exact cut... More

We visited Cotele two times in April 2015 each time I have to say"Thanks Jeremy for the excellent hospitality. Superb food. Hope to get chance to visit again". For us it was definitely the best restaurant in Puerto Montt.

If you wanna to be treated disrespect: this is the wright place to be. The barbecue man is the worse, don't respect anyone, isn't capable of talk and explain how the house works. I really can't understand why this house is the numbers 1. The food is ok, it's a good barbecue, but the service makes you wanna to split... More

The restaurant sits on the upper side of the road to Pelluco, about 10 minutes south of Puerto Montt. Beautiful view of the sea and nice yet simple decor with just a few tables. Julio, the "meat guy" will come to your table with an assortment of raw beef cuts from which you can choose the type and size of... More
