My family loves this place because of the view and kids love the wild west theme. Their drinks are good at best, the waiters will be alright depending on their mood during that day and the food is ok executed so don't have your expectations too high. It's basically bar food. Been going there for years and I once had... More

Funny western style location vis-a-vis the heroes monument. Even the waiters are dressed as cowboys. Food somewhat mexican style.

Every time I'm in Santiago, I stop by this restaurant. The food is amazing especially the steak. It's right across from the Monumental and the area is pretty safe and clean. The price is reasonable. The service could be better. They have 2 floors and will recommend to go on the second floor where the view is fantastic.

I love Kukara Makara first and foremost for the open air second floor dining area right across the street from the monument. I was surprised to find that for a Western themed seemingly tacky restaurant, the food was dynamite! Everything from the sushi to the classic Dominican dishes to the desserts is fantastic. Great place to go with friends and... More

This place looks nice, the food is good , the Customer service is good , they have a nice view of the monument but none of that compensate the fact that they will steal your credit card information.
