“Love this restaurant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014

Great restaurant in Valparaiso. I was visiting my daughter, who is studying here so I have a lot of time alone. I loved the food and atmosphere of this restaurant. There is a man spinning the best music quietly in the background. Bee Gees, Beatles, Chilean music, he had the right touch! My Osso bucco was amazing! Just chill and enjoy the great vibes here!

“Intelligent extrapolation of the comida chilena conceit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2014

Chilean cooking is not great at flavour, but here they at least understand texture. Nice use of walnuts (mariposas) in the mash (pulpo). The rabbit was of the bleached-white, farm-fattened kind. I've been to Vinilo four times, and the rabbit's the best. No horse on the menu. They sell local beer, but unfortunately, it's not very good. A great example of intelligent, touristic cooking with a lovely atmosphere. The ice-cream, showcasing Chilean fruit, is outstanding.

“Delicious food, prompt service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

We enjoyed our lunch at this restaurant very much! There was no English menu, but the waitress was able to assist us with most translation. Service was quick as was the food arriving to our table. Reasonable prices as well. Nice view of passing street action if you like that sort of outlook.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014

Good local food and wines. All dishes were very tasty. Good atmosphere and friendly staff. Well worth a visit. Tip - Try the local digestive after your meal.
