We had a great culinary and human experience! The staff was extremely friendly and polite. The food was really delicious: gnocchi were excellent (and it is said by an Italian!) and so was the king crab! Good wines choice. Everything in the restaurant was smart and there was a wonderful atmosphere... a really jewel in Punta Arenas... Surely we will... More

This restaurants has a very good food quality, they have another way of introduce their dishes options because they don´t have a menu, so the waiter in charge of your table gives you the different options of pasta, meat, fish and seafood they have for that day. People there is very nice and make you feel in a very friendly... More

This was one of my favourite dining experiences in Punta Arenas. The restaurant is in a large old mansion in a residential area of town with a few upscale selections for dinner. Their pisco sour was amazing!

Ridiculously fresh local fish, seasonal menu, inspired by traditional Italian with w nouveau spin. Charming Victorian atmosphere, popular with locals and tourists alike.

This was one of the few restaurants our hotel recommended. It was in an old residence/house and was kind of upper scale. We did not have the chance to make a reservation but they were able to accommodate us. Dishes were good, but we did not find them outstanding. My favorite was a drink made from local blueberry - very... More

I really think so! This was my second time in this restaurant and I confirmed my first impression. Foods are original and very well presented. Wine list is very good, and we enjoyed our "garron de Cordero" (lamb leg) and some pastas with a fabulous Carmen Cabernet Sauvignon - Syrah from 2006, unbeatable. I really recommend this experience!

Reviews preceding this have accurately reflected on the slight intimidation of no written out menu or accompanying price list to spoken menu, large portions, superb wine listings including low price offerings. The decor adds a nice ambience that made our dinner a true success. Unfortunately no room for dessert given portion sizes. I noted a few probable regulars who skipped... More

This place is like a hidden gem. I must say at first we were a little intimidated by the lack of menu written out, however, even with our lack of spanish and very patient waiter we were able to order the best dinner of our honeymoon.
