The coffee was very good but that is all. We order a breakfast which didn't include coffee so you have to pay for it separately, the portion was small and rather expensive. The service was good tough. Also it was very flat food, nothing surprising here but it will work if you can't find nothing else open.

Short stop after a recommendation from a psuedo local and was not disappointed. Made like it was in Australia and could handle a mocha no problem. High quality coffee with friendly staff and smooth service. Wifi easy and strong

After seemingly endless cups of Nescafé, this little cafe was a haven of decent caffeine. We came here for breakfast and cortados, it was so good we delayed our departure from Castro to wait for it to be open for a return visit. Very much recommended.

Great place to stop in for an excellent variety of coffee, tea, hot chocolate or italian soda drinks. Yummy sandwiches on house-made focaccia bread. Charming friendly service in a lovely environment. Definitely recommended!

I've been coming to Ristretto since the beginnings (2008) and all the time I've tasted the greatest coffee in Castro, maybe in all the Islands of Chiloe. Also the variety of beers and focaccias I highly recommend. And last but not least the addictive truffles and tasteful cakes and crepes. Of course a special sentence for the owners and staff...

This is a very small, friendly coffee cafe on a busy side street in Castro. It turns into a bar at night. It's a bit dark inside during the day with dark painted walls. We visited several times and the espresso drinks were good. They take coffee and espresso seriously, which is rare in Chile!
