We stopped at ViaVia on a sunny afternoon and both ordered the three course lunch. At 8,900 pesos ($12/usd), it was the gourmet bargain that I was searching for. My wife had a salad dish and I had a cream of lettuce soup to start, both of which were delicious. We both had a fish dish with an incredible sweet... More

This is a great bar. Did not get a chance to try the food, but we stopped by a couple of times during our Valpo vacation for Belgian beers, wine, and cat snuggles. Lovely breezy outdoor spot with reasonable prices. Very chill. I highly recommend.

After seeing the sign for the menu I decided to give it a try. The menu included three meals and was cheap (6900 CLP) when considering the included, very delicious dishes. Definitely worth a visit!

Go for the set menu otherwise your meal may be a little underwhelming. We ordered sandwiches which were tasty but a little on the small side considering the price.

ViaVia was one of the only places open on Christmas eve and had a fantastic value set menu. While the food was fine, given the day that was in it and the fact that the staff had to work on what was their Christmas day, I really couldn't fault the service we received. The dessert was particularly nice and the... More

We stumbled on this place for lunch (we walked down a lot of steps to get to it). All four of us were in the mood for fish and chips and that is what we got. It was great. A solid piece of meat fried perfectly. We sat on the patio. It was very comfortable. We were visited by the... More

a nice, European small place in the heart of Valparaiso. We had brunch here a couple of times and were never disappointed. While the service wasn't always European-inspired it was easily forgiven as everything else was lovely.

First time here and the best surprise was chocolate covered waffles. Really good!!! A nice patio and the owners are so great as hosts. The prices are good and it's the best place to rest after visiting Cerro Alegre.

A nice and quiet patio with a limited view down to the city. The service is very friendly and quick. Although it is connected to a hotel the prices are fair and food is very good. Close to the center I can recommend it.
