Hoped for a great seafood experience, in the end the food was bland and way too simple (as in you can make it at home without any food-related training or buy it in any cantine). The prices, however, do not reflect this simplicity. How this place came to be #1 on TripAdvisor evades me, although the waiter was nice.

I so wanted this to be a great culinary experience, but was rather disappointed. Not that the food was bad, it was just rather bland. The Pisco sour was also far from the best I've ever had. What was nice was the warm and cosy, relaxing candle-light atmosphere. Service was ok, but not very personal or warm. It wasn't exactly... More

This place has a lot to offer. Always the best service. They even made food without salt for a member of the family.

For a late lunch. Was nice to have a touch of asiatic cooking. Service was good and efficient. The place is interesting with the inside patio. A nice lunch/dinner option in Iquique

It was a great surprise to find El Tercer Ojito in Iquique. When you are traveling it is not easy to find good vegetarian food. We loved the vegetarian risoto and the corn soup. WE are going o come back on our way back to Calama, CHile

The restaurant offers Thai dishes, pasta, seafood and Chilean cuisine. The food is reasonably priced (~5,000 for a salad, 7,000-10,000 for mains), fresh and delicious. Service was really friendly and English-spoken (also an English menu available). The setting within a green courtyard is a great little oasis in the middle of sometimes hectic Iquique.

We had a wonderful Sunday lunch at El tercer ojito which was full of families and large groups. The menu was full of lovely sounding dishes and it was hard to make a choice. We both chose delicious fish dishes and desserts and enjoyed great piscos and mojitos. The service was friendly and impeccable.

Nice option to enjoy Thai food in Iquique. La carte has many options with affordable prices. I especially recommend the desserts like Carlota rusa.

I went to Tercer Ojito for a nice lunch after work. Enjoyed a nice appetizer, two drinks (must get peruano sour), and two entrees and paid around 35.000clp. The restaurant was a little confusing to find, but it's in an old house and has a beautiful garden. The service was good (not great, but honestly customer service is hard to... More
