“Great atmosphere and service”
Reviewed 25 October 2013

We went there as a group of four and just wanted a few drinks and some food to pick on. We were met at the door with a smile and showed our table. Attention was quick but not intrusive. We ordered the 2 'picotear' plates and a vegetarian pizza and two rounds of drinks. They food was presented beautifully but there was a problem with the pate plate, both the pates were off. We asked to speak to the manager , who came immediately, tasted the pate and immediately took it away and replaced it with a lovely meat platter. He was apologetic. The bill came to $100 US for the four of us and we were well stuffed and nicely happy with the drinks.

We are so sorry for the inconvenience with the paté! We are continuosly working to avoid such mistakes, wich are not common in our restaurant.

“It was very popular....”
Reviewed 3 October 2013

My wife and I visited Bravo Cabrera for dinner around 8 pm and by the time we left,the place was packed with no parking spots. The food seemed good enough for a pizza place. I suspect we were the only tourist since its a bit out of town but with a warm atmosphere and friendly staff, it was a safe option. For a couple of pizzas and drink, it cost us under $40. Not sure we would ever return but it wasn't bad.

Hi! Thanks for your comments, they are always well recieved, since they help us to improve.

We know the restaurant is a bit out of town, but the incentive is to have a nice 15 min walk from downtown by the lake, watching the volcanoes! So tourists are always welcome to visit us! Our friendly staff will be always waiting for you!

We would appreciate if you could give us more information why you wouldn't come back... We are constantly working to improve and give our clients are the best dining experience in town!

“Great place, great music, great food”
Reviewed 30 June 2013 via mobile

Friends told us this were a place for "older" people but we wanted to go anyway, and it couldn't be more wrong.
The atmosphere was just incredible. Good music from de 80's and 90's in English and Spanish.
The service is just perfect, my drink was to strong for me (I didn't want to get drunk so early) and they immediately change it.
We tried empanadas and the ceviche one was just delicious! Also the pizzas are special, with ingredients from the local markets.
We had a great time and definitly coming back

We wellcome everyone with the intention to recieve good food at a fair price, to choose a beer they probably won't find near by, to drink the proper wine, to have a good time and to feel as good as you should!

“Good meal”
Reviewed 27 March 2013

We had some disappointments with food during our time in Chile, but this place did a great job - good atmosphere (Saturday night) , good service and great food, not to mention the volcano views! Pizza and salad mains were good (and big) and a nice bar/lounge area too.
