The Cocoa restaurant is located in a mid sized Shopping complex beside the Hyatt Place Vitacura Hotel where we were staying. The restaurant is located on two levels of the centre and while the entrance and bar is on the lower level, ask for a table upstairs for the ambiance. Cocoa has an English language menu so ask for that... More

I've visited this restaurant for many years and their cuisine is still top notch. All the clasic Peruvian dishes are here (Ceviches, causas, lomos saltados). The place is also kind of cool since half the restaurant is an old passenger-train wagon. The only problem is that the place is usually crowded.

It started rather small in La Dehesa, in an old railroad car and has expanded but preserving the car. The look is quite original and nice. As in many countries, Peruvian restaurants have mushroomed and righly so. Their food is diverse, tasty, uses well their raw material and has developped a fine school of chefs, starting with Acurio, who could... More

The food is excellent. From the Sea Bass my friend had, the fliet with roasted garlic to the great wine selection, everything was top notch. I see people here say the items are pricey, but everything is made from scratch including the pasta to order. The owner even took the time to come out to tank us for coming and... More

This is the newest Cocoa location, right behind the Hyatt place. This is authentic Peruvian food at the heart of Santiago, Chile. I was attended by Carlos, who took care of my meal with attention to service and I was also greeted by Gabriel Pescheira, the owner/chef. This is a fine dinning place with reasonable prices that would make a... More

You need to know only one thing to go to this place. How to say "aji relleno". Honestly on of the best dishes (appetizer in this case) I have had in Chile. Pisco sour is not bad either...

The best in the neighborhood. Fresh, honest peruvian food. Fan of the ceviche, ahi de gallina, and other tradicional peruvian dishes. Good service.
