My husband and I had an amazing dinner here! The king crab pie and seafood soup really hit the spot. The atmosphere was very cozy and the service was excellent. I would highly recommend.

This restaurant exceeded all my expectations. We were looking for a restaurant enjoyed by locals rather than for tourists. Not only that the food was excellent (also reasonably priced) but we had the opportunity to enjoy company of Francisco, the chef and owner. His hospitality and passion about food was the reason why after the "W" hike instead of going... More

We absolutely loved this restaurant and even went twice here! It is very beautifully designed (think beach rustic) with stove. On both nights, the owner Francisco was present to chat with and serve the guests (great mix of locals and tourists). This is not a touristy place, but real local restaurant with honest food! Totally worth the 5 minute walk... More

Thank you fellow reviewers! This was a great find. Lovely atmosphere and a menu and wine list that isn't extensive but covers most tastes. In my case, since it had been 4 years since I'd had my first bull's testicles in Madrid, I had to try the sheep's version here. They were absolutely brilliant. Soft, tender and simply prepared, they... More

Skip the expensive tourist traps. This is a neighborhood joint that serves fresh food simply. Excellent service, terrific seafood. You'd think you were in a funky little place in Austin, Texas.

The Octopus entry was incredible tasty followed by a well cooked lamb. After lunch we enjoyed the sofas for another hour tasting some spirits.

We ate here when spending 1 evening in Puerto Natales before our trip to Torres del Paine. We had lamb and incredibly delicious seafood dishes. The best was chupe. Unlike some of the highly rated places in Punta arenas, the chupe here is full of seafood rather than bread. The lamb was marinated and cooked well too. They also have... More

We just returned from an incredible meal here, we loved the scallops and french toast/king prawn starters, and seafood pie and seafood combo. The food is incredibly fresh, the flavours are complimentary and the atmosphere and service was lovely and chilled out. Totally worth the short walk from downtown, and excellent value.
