Christmas Dinner

It's the bane of tourists travelling on Christmas day. The recommended TA restaurants I checked are not open for business.

Any suggestions for decent local/Chilean food available for dinner - and maybe lunch - that day? I'd rather avoid tourist hotel options which are likely to be a poor value given the captive audience. Thanks.

I was once in Chile for Xmas eve, it was not in Puerto Varas but in a smaller town, Cochrane, and we didn't find ANY restaurant open. Some gorcery stores were well open.

There is bound to be something open on Christmas Eve but probably closing early, probably around 9. Christmas here is celebrated by families on the evening of the 24th. The 25th would be more difficult as it is an obligatory holiday, workers have to be given the day off and families will be sleeping in and resting. Then hotels may be your only option. There is a frequent poster on here who lives in the area and he may be able to offer more help.

Be prepared to eat in your hotel. Most restaurants don't open on Sunday, let alone xmas day.
