Highly recommended by a Chilean friend, la Ollita offered the best seafood I tried in the South of Chile. The picada caliente was to die for. 20 tiny plates with different kinds of local seafood can feed 2 or 3 at a mere $20 USD. I went back 3 times during my short visit.

We went here for lunch, but decided to have the picadas that looked delicious and they were. It comes in a number of small tapas of different seafood and everything was great! The three of us shared one appetizer. Service was excellent.

Well located in a hotel, with modern, cozy atmosphere, I think this restaurant outperforms its well known parent restaurant, La Ollaitself a major tradition in Puerto Varas. You may be serviced by the owners and everything tastes great.

Not in our list to go again. Nice but it is sort of the old style food....with cream and dressings that take the natural flavours out. we ordered fish that came overcooked, beverages were served late and I had the bad idea of ordering a pancake stuffed with sea food (which sounded good) and SPECIALLY asked for the "white sauce"...

The waiter thougt that serving the entree's and the main corse at the same time, was a good idea! The food was ok, but not more than that. My son got a fried fish with mashed potatoes, but I'm quite sure that the mashed potatoes was from the supermarked, was way too smooth to be home made. The fish my... More
