I usually say that there is no such thing as too much cheese. There is. The crust was probably nice and crispy, but there was an overflow of only slightly melted cheese. Had to scrape most of it of to make it at least eatible.

I love this place. Not just to eat. Sometimes I have to work, so go there to write and sip a vino upstairs listening to their funky tunes with views of the lake. It's a great friendly place that always smells appetising and is really well priced

Known for its pizza, but when last visited, I had a Spanish platter of meat and other stuff with 2 bottles of promoted local beer, and it was delicious!!!

Went for dinner but had to eat again that night as the portions were so small. They also brought out the wrong meal at first so we had to wait for the correct meal to be prepared. Reasonably tasty but felt we could have cooked it ourselves. We were up sold on a bottled beer that wasn´t very nice over... More

We ate at Parentesis on two different nights during our stay in Puerto Varas. The service here is pretty quick (unless you sit at the table closest to the door - the waiters all ignore anyone who sits at that table.) I think we placed our ordered at 6 PM, and by 6:30 we paid the bill and left. Like... More

We were staying at a guest house in Puerto Varas and the host recommended Parentesis so we went there for a pizza. Unfortunately, the wait was long for a pizza, so we ordered pasta dishes that turned out to be very good. But the best part was that they served Chester Obama Stout on tap. The waiters were very entertaining... More

Nice staff and a bubbly crowd for diner-style eating - just round the corner from El Barista (which was closed which is why we ended up here). Good beer selection and decent selection of pizzas and other "naughty" food. Staff were quick and food served fast and efficiently - would deffo go back.

At first everything was sold out. I mean a pizzeria that doesn't have pizza and pasta. Than i ordered a steak with patatoes and a beer. Most of the beer they did not have and just to get someone to my table took like 30 minutes after that it took a really long time to bring me a glass and... More

The restaurant was very busy which is usually a good sign. We couldn't get a table outside so had to go upstairs, it did seem for a while that we'd been forgotten but I think it was just that they were busy and we should have been patient!My husband enjoyed the local beer of which there was a good selection.We...

With large spots advertising kroos beer it was a bit of a let down when they were out of stock having been craving exactly that fresh and fruity local beer all day during our trek in petrohue but hey thats life! The waiter recommended a quite different french pilsner as the perfect replacement. They were also out of quinoa salad.... More
