You can see by the photos how bright and airy this place is. It looks to be a converted home. We were greeted by excellent wait staff. The wines are abundant. We had soup, eggplant Parmesan, a garlic shrimp appetizer. All were excellent. In addition they have excellent breads and salads There is service for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner.... More

I brought my parents to lunch since I had a good experience in my previous visit 6 months ago. The place is pretty but food and service were really mediocre. The waitress was unable to explain items on the menu, not that it mattered since what we got was different from how it was described in the menu. I am... More

A few blocks away from the Hotel Cumbres. Wonderful menu, extensive wine list, everything so very well prepared. A must visit in Puerto Varas.

Went there for lunch. Has a lot of tables but few waiters.. Maybe you'll have to wait a while to be served but the wait is worth it. I had a really flavourful quinoa salad with smoked salmon, and my friend ordered ribs cooked with coffee bbq and wine, superb. Did not see that comming. They serve nice pastries aswell.

Very poor service. Waited 40 minutes for the menus. Same as last year, has not improved at all. It is not recommended.

All the produce of La Gringa is way too tempting. They bake fresh every day & can sell out especially the choc chip cookies. They do breakfasts & lunches & make birthday cakes too order Worth a visit

We went 3 times for lunch or dinner, and once for afternoon tea! Wonderful stop. Miguel is the manager who looks after everybody with the same attentive behaviour. The food is superbly prepared and elegantly presented. Both my wife and I discovered Kingclip fish which is so very tasty but they will add mash potatoes if you ask them nicely... More

A couple of nights ago I went to the neighboring restaurant mercado 605 (they belong together i think? Same staff at least). Although the food was good, I wasn't too positive about the experience. However, based on a recommendation I decided to try out La Gringa for lunch. I had a quinoa salad which was really good, big! See picture!... More
