Had dinner there this past week. Wonderful atmosphere and very accommodating staff. The ceviches they served were quite nice. My wife had trout for her entree and she thought it was wonderful had great taste and was very moist. I ordered what I thought was Chilean sea bass but it was not. It was some other fish which was very... More

This is by far the best restaurant in town! Great venue, excellent service, and the food is delicious. They have a variety of choices based on a mix of local/international cuisine. Meat is always perfect and fish is never overcooked. Very good restaurant! You will not find a better one near Concepcion

I had grilled eel, chips and salad. Very nice it was too. The service was a bit snooty, but, if I ran a posh restaurant, I probably wouldn't want people who look like me in it either so I can't complain.

I travel to Concepcion several times a year and always make this restaurant a must. The steaks and seafood are excellent, but for me the best is the ceviches. I give this restaurant a strong reccomendation

Really good choice for dinner. Service was excellent and the food was the same. Ceviches were fresh as was the fish dish. Steak was really good and and the portion was big. Can't go wrong with this place.

One of the best steaks in Concepcion. Excellent service offers a variety of soups, salads, pastas, fish and obviously steaks. Angus, veal, lamb and Wagyu offer a nice menu of options, and a complete wine selection made lunch or dinner a great experience. Weather permitting an outdoor sitting area is available, a nice Horno de Barro is available upon request.... More

The good: the food is, as one would hope, excellent. I had the salmon, and it was excellent: buttery, grilled right, and just the right amount. The side salad I asked for was fresh, and the local Sauvignon Blanc (at US$6 for a half-bottle) was crisp and a perfect pairing. The bad: the service is so bad that it's almost... More

Good attention for a business dinner, had a seafood starter plate, everything delicious, then ordered a beef filet, unfortunately it came more raw than ordered, but it was soft and tasty. Wine and attention good, price tag is higher than normal, but i guess ig is difficult to find something at this level in Concepcion.

The "Aquarium" is directly cross-road to the IBIS hotel and a bit hidden, but a perfect place to have a really excellent dinner with fresh seafood in a nice place and with a highly attentive service. I would not have expected such a wonderful restaurant in this surrounding - the whole design, food and organisation is perfect - highly recommendable... More
