Don't be put off by the appearance - the steak off the fogon cooked where you can see it sizzling was fantastic & the oysters were fresh & delicious - we're definitely going back!

We went here by the recommendations of or taxi driver. Bummer. It was BY FAR the worst food of our three days in Puerto Varas. There were three of us eating, and no one liked their food. The fried fish wasn't very fresh, and the breading was really soggy, thick and mushy. The fries were fine, but rather bland. I... More

If you want to eat crab and other seafood then this is the place for you. Make sure you have a reservation or you may be disappointed f you try to eat after 7pm. We loved it so much we went back a second night and it was just as good. The crab and avocado was just great and the... More

We went on New Year's Day as there wasn't a lot else open in Puerto Varas. Situated at the very end of cul-de-sac the entrance is hidden away. The decor is bright with a view onto a garden out back and they have tables outside. It's a busy no-nonsense type of place. The menu offers a basic selection of fish,... More

Just left the place and could not forget to comment that we had the best meal from Chile here with a very reasonable price and great service. We had crab claws, salmon and steaks and absolutely everything was perfect and delicious We will be back!

We arrived about 6:00pm. We got lots of attention, even tried a sample of an appetizer before we decided. We got dinners after appetizers and then it got really busy. It was difficult to get anyone's attention to get the check and pay. Aside from that dinner was good. For appetizers we had the sea urchin salad and green bean... More

We selected this restaurant because of the ratings and reviews, however, this experience was terrible. I have eaten sea food in many different areas of Chile and in restaurants much less fancy and expensive and have never become sick from the food. I chose the Caldillo de Congrio as congrio is one of my favorites. Within two hours, I was... More

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
