We were left disappointed by our visit, the food itself was ok quality but very pricey for what you were getting especially in Santiago. The real let down was the service, the staff seemed uninterested and lacked professionalism. At one point the server dropped my plate very heavily and they would reach across your food to place or remove items... More

The food was ok, a little expensive because this is is usually a place where turist go to lunch but i don't know any "Santiaguino" who goes there . The rotation is a great concept! but it is not a must.

If you go to Santiago, you should to know this place. There you can see the city in a 360º vision while you have a meal. It's a little expensive, but the view is amazing. Tip: go in the evening, because you'll see a fantastic sunset!

Dont go here if looking for strictly looking for an excellent food menu, or you will be disappointed. The principal attraction is the rotating view of the city while dining. The food, I found, was average, though an enjoyable experience when considering the atmosphere.

I can´t explain why but I love this restaurant in the top of a bulding that rotates. Very 80' 90' style, Very good food reasonable priced. Lots of jupies style customers and some nice views of the city. I enjoyed lunch time there, but I guess evenings cocktails should be very amazing too.

I've lived in Santiago for 8 years, and I stayed away from Giratorio out of the pure "touristy-ness" of it. What a dumb thing to do. While yes, it is a restaurant that rotates and is thus condemned to constantly live in a haze of the 60s and 70s, the experience was excellent. The decor is modern, and the food... More

Searching for a restaurant that is open in Providencia on a Sunday night is not that easy. We happened upon this place, and were relieved that they had a table. The food was good, the wine list excellent, and the waiter was very friendly and helpful. It was only after we had been seated for some time that we noticed... More

We went to El Giratorio for dinner and we were not at all let down by the view. The dining experience itself was reasonable, the food and wine were good, the service was alright, prices were fine, but it was the view that made the evening. The restaurant rotates very slowly, so you don't even notice that you're moving, but... More

The restaurant promises an interesting experience, which is a 360 view. But place it's old, menu has odd combinations on Salmon and Bacon, and purpose a risotto on regular white rice. Ate a gnocchi a la carbonara, which was a regular lunch and extremely expensive around USD14,00.
