The Fogon del Gaucho is the ideal restaurant to visit if in need of topping up your proteins! Originally a barbecued beef joint only, it now also serves salmon and chicken. The salad bar is a must, very varied and fresh. They serve a wicked pisco sour and have a great wine list. Try their home made, traditional, 'leche asada'... More

We have been many times to the Fogon del Gaucho while living in Santiago and now went back while we were on holidays. It is still the same great place with friendly service, great meat (and big portions) and a wonderful salad bar. Most meals come with a side dish to choose from. The place is nicely decorated and there's... More

Try the baby beef cut and the grilled chicken... the best I've tried in Santiago so far! Prices are reasonable -not cheap. The quality of service is... More

We have eaten here for the past 3 years and enjoyed it each time. The Filet is excellent and the service was very good. We sit outside and enjoy the sun. The only negative would be the street dogs that some times wander through the restaurant...but that is Chile. Not cheap but once in a while we go there.
