We stumbled upon this restaurant as I was jumping away from a rogue dog and the restaurant owner was at the door to see me stumble. He was a very pleasant fellow with good English so we decided to try it. It was worthwhile. He started us with a tray of toasted bread with two dipping sauces (one being chili) and sapodillas this was courtesy of the house. We followed this with a seafood pasta and the fish of the day which came with a mound of salad and vegetables (salad seems to be hard to find in this part of the world). Both were delicious - rounded off with a Chilean red wine and we were very happy

I ordered a chupe de mariscos which was the worse I have eaten in a long time. And the ceviche ordered by my partner was a salmon and tilapia mix, but there was more tilapia than salmon

We took a bus from Santiago to visit the beautiful Valparaiso city. After walking all around town, we had lunch at this beautiful small restaurant. The menu was great with many seafood dishes as well as stew and 'soup'. The pisco sour was really good and authentic although the serving was a bit small. I don't know if the owner ever fixed the credit card reader or not, but when we were there the week of March 5 the machine was not working. He said it had been broken for several weeks. So make sure you bring enough cash to cover your bill.

We chose Cocina Puerto because our tour guide said it was one of his favorite restaurants. It was easy to get to, just a short walk from the funicular. We were not disappointed. The ambiance of the place was great--beautiful artwork on the walls, excellent music playing in the background, lovely street.

The food did not disappoint. We asked for 2 glasses of white wine. The waiter informed us that they only sold small bottles. Well, this turned out to be great as a small bottle was about 2 1/2 glasses for about $6.75. That worked for us. They then proceeded to give us these wonderful samosa type things with fabulous sauces along with the bread. I call it free appetizers. We ordered 2 stew like fish entrees, one with crab, vegetables and cheese and one with shrimp, tomatoes and potatoes. Both were incredibly fresh, light and delicious. As if this wasn't enough, our waiter brought us two glasses of an after dinner aperitif ( for free). What a wonderful dining experience. Between the delightful service and the great food, I gladly give Cocina Puerto a five star rating. We are seriously considering a return visit while we are in Valparaiso.

Excellent restaurant, outstanding food! We entered by chance with my husband and we were impressed with the quality of the food. We ate a delicious corvina (fish) with great salad and a wonderful humita with seafood. Nice place, good music, well served. Impossible to miss.
