La Marcia has outstanding steaks and other foods very well prepared. The staff is very kind and efficient. We highly recommend finishing your meal with the churro, they were simply divine.

Found this place on TA and the Rough Guide book. Short walk from our hotel. Best meal we had in PV by some margin. Great food and service. Nothing more to add!

As we were wandering around town looking for a place to eat, we noticed this place. Was at circa 3:30 (or 1530) and the menu looked interesting so we gave it a try. Very nice! Was interesting that while it was busy when we arrived, it had mostly emptied out bu 4 pm. The Empanadas were good but not really... More

We arrived when it first opened with reservations made the previous month while at home and are glad we did. This centrally located popular restaurant fills quickly. This is a place for really good wood fire grilled steaks.

This is not an elegant restaurant. Wooden tables and chairs and a long line in the January high season. However, the meat was very tender and well prepared on the grill. I ordered the rib-eye (lomo vetado) and was not disapointed. My wife had the asado de tira, very tasty. An enjoyable meal in downtown Puerto Varas

My wife and I are foodies, and we can believe how good this place was! Best food we had in Chile. This place is nice, very clean, and pretty good service. They really know what they're doing! This is a must go please.

To be fair I would give 4.5-4.75 if trip advisor would allow. I was excited to dine at La Marca; however, the experience exceeded my expectations! Our service was great. Despite being tourists, and my wife not speaking any Spanish, we were cared for with the same attention as the other patrons. The a lo pobre is great. French fries... More

We asked a tour guide where to eat (a practice that was to let us down badly a day later, but that's another story) and Marca lived up to expectations. Great steaks, from 7pm only, but you can order other things before and good ambience. Nice decor.

We enjoyed a very leisurely business lunch on our first day. While known for steaks, which were great, I had the sweet corn and meat pie which was heavenly. The salads were huge and fresh. The wine was delicious. And the dessert was amazing. It is a quaint restaurant with very friendly and efficient service. Probably one of the best... More

We had our Christmas Eve dinner here and everyone was delights. Good steaks, yes. But the empanadas were excellent, the salads were excellent and the service was excellent too! Our best meal in Puerto Varas.
