This is absolutely a must if you are visiting Mercado Central. The price is very reasonable. Portions are very generous. This would probably cost 2x anywhere else. The service is fantastic and depending on the time it could be packed with locals, meaning it must be good. And it is. I had the Albacore a la Plancha. With potato salad... More

After walking around the central market, we chose this place to have lunch. It was almost crowded; tables seemed to had been put in their place by a Tetris expert! We found one in the first floor next to the wall. The waiter was very attentive and had a good predisposition to answer our doubts at the time of choosing... More

We found Donde Blanca at the rear of the famous Mercado Central fish market and sea food restaurants. We looked for an out of the way place as far away from the big central restaurants with their too numerous hawkers and a place that was crowded. Donde Blanca filled these requirements. We were seated up stairs, which had several other... More

Santiago’s Mercado Central (Central Market) is a long-known place for good, in general fairly priced, seafood of all kinds. However, the experience shows that smaller, less touristic restaurants and eateries provide a better, more personal service at friendlier prices than the two or three big guys’ that currently dominate the central square on the main floor. This is exactly the... More

This restaurant is located in the back left corner of mercado central (when walking in through the front//main entrance). Avoid all the hustlers who "greet" you when you enter the market and just walk to the back. We mainly went in because there was no one harassing us to come in, and it was packed with non tourists. We were... More

The restaurant "Donde Blanca" is located in the Mercado Central. You have to walk a little around to find it. I was there two times, and if I have time I will definately go there again. Before you get your meal you receive some white bread and some chili sauce, like in almost all restaurants in Santiago. The sauce in... More
