Azul profundo on Constitición in Bellavista has it on the menu, but I would check to ensure it is being served the day you want to go. In Chile it is know as merluza negra o bacalao austral. There are no specialised fish restaurants in the Lastarria neighbourhood.

Hello, try the Meson Nerudiano, in Bellavista, and ask for "corvina"...pronounced as "corveena"...Another nice fish is "reineta".

It's an interesting place with moderate prices.

Corvina is not what is called Chilean Seabass in North America. Corvina is Cilus gilberti while the fish known in North America as Chilean Seabass is Dissostichus eleginoides or Patagonian toothfish.
