The food and service at Pez Dorado is clearly above average. Over the past few years I have dined there more than a dozen times and there have been very few hiccups. The cuisine is ostensibly meat, fish and Chinese. There is a well stocked bar and the wine list has a good selection in all price ranges. The decor could use a face lift, but the restaurant is very clean and hospitable. It is on the pricey side but worth a visit for sure.

It has been a classic for many years. People will go to the place because food was almost the same always. Unfortunately, it has changed and for the worst.
Food is at most average, extremely expensive and poor decor. I used to visit this restaurant every time I would travel to Santiago, but not any more. It is not worth it.
If you still want to go, the only thing that is still good is the Chow Fan (add fried sweet plantain and it will be even better)
Services is still good.
Note: If paying with credit card, do not leave tip. The owner does not give the tip to the waiters if paid by credit card (the waiter told me). Cash for the tip will be appreciated.

Upscale restaurant (decor is a bit dark, but classy) in downtown Santiago. Our family ordered the baked fish, fried fish and a bowl of pasta (no appetizers). Portions were huge and the food was delicious. The service was very nice -- two very attentive waiters. One called a taxi for us when we were ready to leave. We will definitely return.

a friend of ours organized a special " degustation" menu...8 different dishes plus desserts.
From lobster to wild boar meat, from king crab to salad of sea weed, the food was fantastic!!!
We had a table set in an alcove away from the rest of the restaurant, surrounded by wine bottles, a perfect setting, indeed.
The wine list was extensive, the owner very friendly and the service as good as Don Pepe in Santo Domingo.
The price of this gastronomic fantasy was 3500 pesos per persons, we were 3 couples. Well worth it, we all want to come back again.

Would liked to have tried many items on the menu, settled on what we could afford. Would most likely not return.
