We arrived at the restaurant about 7:30 PM, early for Chile, and were the first dinner guests. We were pleased to see vegetarian options, since my friend is a pesquetarian. We had a quiet table near a small pond. Our server, Ezekiel, speaks good English and Spanish. We ordered a plate of 6 empanadas in 3 different vegetarian fillings. They... More

Comfy, quiet and mystic atmosphere, kind waiters/waitresses, and really tasty dishes. They also have Thai food, what's very good and totally recommend it. Very romantic at night. There's a little pagoda and garden inside. It may be expensive, but totally worth it!

The setting and atmosphere is beautiful and the waiter was very nice- but the food unfortunately wasn't at all on the same level. I had expected a good Asian restaurant and was looking forward to some good Pad Thai. However, the Pad Thai wasn't actually Pad Thai, but some overcooked noodles drenched in a bland coconut curry sauce (curry on... More

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.

Thank Магда Л
