“Export yourself outta here”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014 via mobile

This place is unfortunately the only thing open in San Pedro on a Saturday night.
For this reason the door staff take it on themselves to become obnoxious, power hungry and rude.
If the place is full, ask people to queue and let them in as people leave, shouting at potential customers is unacceptable.
The beers are expensive, the food poor and the atmosphere is average (people jumping around) until you are ushered to sit down several times during a night while the cops pay a visit.

Overall, probably the worst bar we've had the pleasure of visiting on our trip.

“Great place for drinks & a funny night out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2014

Great drinks (try the Pisco Sour - amazing!), super friendly staff and cool music - we had lots of fun spending our time there! It's the place to be when you wanna know what happens after the last round.

“Nice atmosphere, good menu”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2014 via mobile

The lively atmosphere of a bar mixed with a restaurant was quite nice, there even was a DJ playing decent-ish music.

The food was good, and the menu offered excellent value for money; not unimportant in Chile!

“Skip it”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 January 2014 via mobile

After a couple of nights in San Pedro we decided to eat here. A nice cat was sitting at the table next to ours, on my way to the restroom I stumbled upon a dog, way out stepped into a poorly covered large hole in the floor. I ordered the quinoa risotto and here is when pet friendly reaches a whole new level, after two bites I realize something is moving in my plate. Ants. Not just one or two, the plate was full of ANTS. The waiter took the plate away, offered to replace it and took it off the check. Still this is not what you expect of a pricey restaurant anywhere. Save yourself the disappointment, the disgust and money. Much better and cleaner places on Caracoles.

“Local Scene”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2013

This place was recommended to us by locals. We went twice. The first night our empanadas took forever to come (but it was one of the busiest weekends of the year). However, they were humungous and delicious and totally made up for the wait. Our drinks that night were super tasty. The second time we went was just for drinks and the bar scene. We ended up sharing a big table with lots of locals which was super fun and authentic. Unfortunately, it was late enough that they were out of some of the drinks on the menu. The dancing was great fun. There wasn't really a dance floor, just the space between tables, but pretty much everyone was cycling between sitting and drinking and dancing. It was a fun musical chairs/tables/dance floor that meant you met lots of people. The decor and architecture sets a fun vibe.
