This is a restaurant where Chileans eat. Service was fast, menu was filled with excellent choices of the best fresh seafood and meat. Selections varied from cold platters to soups. Entrees were generous. King crab was perfect. Restaurant is in the main waterfront area, but tucked down a short street. The Sunday afternoon I ate here had all tables filled,... More

Straightforward but skilled preparation of top quality seafood, including varieties that are only found on the Chilean coast. Packed with locals and national tourists who know their seafood, be prepared to wait if you arrive in peak hours. Friendly and well-informed staff, laid-back service: no one here is in a rush so sit back and enjoy the experience. Reasonably priced.... More

It was a Sunday and we were fortunate to arrive for lunch just prior to the arrival of local crowds. Upon our request our server suggested the "seafood platter for two." Luckily, we were VERY hungry. Otherwise, it would have been difficult to eat this entire order of raw oysters, scallops, a huge, meaty local bivalve whose appearance is prehistoric,... More

My wife had looked up this restaurant and found many good local reviews. We went there our first evening in Puerto Varas and it was a short walk from our hotel. When we arrived, they quickly uncovered the languages we were speaking (Portuguese and English) and they assigned a waitress to attend us. She was from Rio originally and the... More

This is a charming restaurant tucked in a pathway of rose bushes in Puerto Varas, The City of Roses. And, the food is so good. We enjoyed Chilean seafood dishes as well as stone crab salad.

Popular at mealtime and very busy. Start early for smart service. Leisurely dining as tables fill. Good value, usual menu.
