Absolutely terrible.
The band they had playing instraments were so loud it hurt my ears, there were speakers everywhere so unable to avoid.
The entrada and main were terrible, desert was a safe amd simple serve of ice cream that took about 40 minutes to come out. Couldnt get out quick enough

We stopped here on our first night in San Pedro and ordered the mixed quesidillas which were great. It was my partners first experience of llama meat and she loved it. A sudden rain storm caused a power outage for about an hour but the staff were prepared and had candles blazing on our tables in not time. The live music is also very good as well.

As it was not within tripadvisor´s top picks I had my doubts at first. The staff was friendly and the place was cozy well maintained. I strongly recommend the llama stew or llama tacos and the mojito with coca leaves.

we ate there but it's more a bar than a restaurant. Food was ok, they have very loud music, a fire in the middle of tables, nice staff. prices are reasonable.

We have been attracted by the braseros at the entrance looking for a good grill. Then hesitating as maybe too touristic and price looking very high. In fact it was a duo offer so we went there.

As soon as installed on the terrasse it started well with an amazing pisco sour offered. A rare moment you take time with.
Followed our duo main course, a bowl for a mix of meats with vegetables in a black sauce that provided us another very good moment. That's the best dish i ever tasted during my Chile trip. It may not satisfy everybody as it was 'salty' but we both really appreciated.

As it was big enough, i was the only one having a 'postre' and again a very tasty pie.
As a French guy i always have troubles with desserts when i am abroad ;-) but this one made it enough.

Very good diner in a ranch atmosphere around braseros, so what else?
... on thing missing, the Wifi.
