“Good food, nice atmosphere”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2014

The meat was good but not outstanding, service o.k., the place was very busy on a Friday night, there were moments we felt a little rushed. They seem to take very well care of families with small kids.

“Good Steak - Very Chilean”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2014

Our daughter works in Puerto Montt and she picked out this restaurant for the three of us to have dinner. It was an excellent choice. Our steaks were tender and cooked to our order and our salads were fresh and well presented.

I would highly recommend this and BTW the decor is neat.

“Good Chilean BBQ house!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2013 via mobile

Good food with a hint of German/conquistador ambiance. Be aware to keep away on Fridays and Saturday, unless you get there early or plan on waiting an extra hour or two for food service.

“Great Steak!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2013 via mobile

Very friendly staff, beautiful steak,  but a bit pricy. You are going to have a great time if you ask for a "Murjito".

“excellent steak, great atmosphere, good value for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2013

After several very poor steaks recently I decided to go to El Fogon de Pepe which I visited a year ago. Having liked it previously I was surprised it is now No.7 on TripAdvisor – perhaps because the El Fogon web site is down (it’s easy to locate as their road runs parallel to the Promenade). It still has bags of character and this time I took my camera – see photos. I didn’t order a starter but some Chorizo arrived along with “fluffy” rolls (sopaipillas) plus tomato and onion salsa; a good start. I ordered a 350-gram rib-eye, sweetcorn, avocado and fat chips. The steak was superb, such a delight after recent disappointments – I had a glass of house red and was too full for a desert. It seats circa 70 and was turning around tables on a Tuesday evening – all clientele apart from me were locals. It has a great atmosphere prompted by the staff who also clearly enjoyed the evening. The bill was 17,300 Chilean pesos (circa UK£ 25.) not including service. My faith in Chilean steak is restored!
