The location was excellent but the food was very overpriced. Compared to some of the best seafood restaurants in Santiago, this place is easily 30% more expensive and of lower quality. There equally good restaurants in town for a lot less.

The restaurant opened a few months ago, is without doubt one of the Top 5 restaurants in the city. Great location, nice decoration, good service and the food is always good, sometimes even excellent.

Classy. The Atmosphere is Beautiful - decorated with antiques and white linens with a beautiful view of the sea side. The food is exquisite. Everything we have ever ordered from the menu has been succulent and to our liking. The seafood is especially delicious with fresh vegetables as side dishes. The serving sizes are plentiful with a big screen television... More

After they cleared the mess (Chilean way) we had a great dinner and celebrated our niece's graduation in style. Food is good and service as well. Location is good and place... More

We went for dinner, it was overall nice, even though the risotto was a little overcooked... The place is decorated nicely, and the service is good.

This is simply my favourite place to go in La Serena. The top quality service has no equal. Food is always fresh and timely served, having a excellent mixture of seafood and meats. The seafood appetizers are really great!! They also serve the best "pisco sour" and "mojito cubano".

Tololo Beach is a fisherman palace, with eclectic decoration of natural shapes and classic details. Service is correct and efficient; cuisine is simple and effective in authentic flavors (try the tuna steak to get impressed and satisfied). A good experience at all.
