We lunched at La Caperucita y el Lobo (Little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf) looking over the bay and the city late on Saturday afternoon--one of us had to call the restaurant to postpone the reservation three times due to traffic from Santiago to Valpo. This did not concern the staff and they were most helpful. The food was excellent, though two of the three of us were disappointed with the pinot noir. They both gave it four points out of a possible ten. A harsh rating, thought the third imbiber. We started with salads and crab cakes, then two of us had Chilean hake, merluza, and our third had two more starters, crab cakes and scallops. He thought the scallops with their roe were out of this world…and even the chef stopped by to ask who was having them because even he thought they were superb. The view over Valpo harbor is superb from the top of a small hill. Eat outside on the terrace if possible.

We were walking up and down the streets of the old city and stumbled on this great spot. The view is very nice overlooking the city. They have a nice menu. The mussels were outstanding. Great spot for a meal and a glass of wine.

We had our civil wedding lunch here with our family in April 2013 and the experience was unforgettable.

They organized a separate space for our small party, and Carolina transformed the space into the most charming setting you can imagine. With fresh flowers on the table and around the room, personalized cards for each guest to commemorate our big day, and generally a beautiful incredibly tasteful set up.

Leornado the chef, despite being very busy, took the time to meet with us to discuss the menu for the event, weeks before. We had a menu tasting with food that still makes my mouth water just thinking of it! And on the day, it was all taken care of. We just turned up on the agreed time and relaxed. The food was just what we had agreed on, tasty clean flavors, cooked to perfection and with a beautiful presentation. Impeccable service. We were all really awed. Carolina's work really impressed us and the rest of the family (we saw the set up that same day, but she had really materialized what I had in mind). It was such a beautiful day, and I cannot recommend this restaurant enough. It is our favorite restaurant in Valpariso, for very special occasions. The young couple and owners are very attentive, and really care about their work, and you can tell. Leornado is an outstanding chef.

A must visit if you go to Valpariso!!

I really enjoyed my first experience at this restaurant and I'm looking forward to the next time. The atmosphere was a French countryside kind of vibe, very nicely done with excellent attention to details. The view is nice and the terrace is very pleasant. The food was creative and delicious and the service was very good. My only complaint is that the crab cakes were actually more like pumpkin cakes, I couldn't really taste the crab at all. They were good, but they definitely weren't crab cakes! The pisco sours were delicious and the desserts were FANTASTIC. Try the carrot cake! I really loved the attention to detail in all aspects, I will definitely go back.
