No wonder it is rated number one in Papudo by TripAdvisor members. The restaurant is in an old house in the center of Papudo just across the plaza. The walls are decorated with Hollywood celebrities portraits and posters of classic movies. The tables are well...set and the service is top notch. Our waitress Paulina was great. The food is very good. We ordered costillar (pork ribs in a dark sweet sauce), beef lasagna and pastel de jaiba (Chilean crab cake). Everything was delicious. To drink, we had beer, juices and mineral water. Great dinnerMore

Has its reputation well earned! We ordered two dishes: reineta with rice and tuna fish with potatoes, and both were simply amazing. It has an original and non-pretentious cook that makes it surely the best choice in Papudo. Totally recommended! The service it's excellent too!...Very kind and dedicated people.More

Rated #1 restaurant in Papudo on Tripadvisor, I had to try this place. The setting is simple, two separate salons of an old house right in front of the town's main square, plus some outside seating as well. Inside, cheap plastic tablecloths, wooden chairs, and...walls covered with nice B&W photos of celebrities. I wasn't expecting anything else, as Papudo is a very laid back town, still beautifully underdeveloped. Table service is kind, but the kitchen is very slow (something apparently common in several other Papudo restaurants, as I could get from other reviews). Food is just okay, a bit on the bland side, like the cook held back on spice, lemon and salt. The clams gratin (machas) were tiny due to overcooking, and floating in liquid -I have had much better elsewhere. The ceviches lack leche de tigre so the fish bites are sort of dry. The pastel de jaiba (crabmeat gratin) was among the best, although some more flavor wouldn't have hurt. The wine list is short but good, offering a small selection of mid-range Chilean wines. Prices are on the expensive side for a small-town, family-run place (around 25 US dollars per person for just one dish each and a bottle of wine). You might want to try it, but don't get your expectations too high (maybe that was my mistake). Ranking #1 in a town with just a handful of restaurants might not mean that much.More
