We visited El Giratorio for a bird's eye, 360 degree view of Santiago and it did not fail us. The entire rotation takes about one hour, and we experienced a beautiful sunset view followed by the lights of Santiago. The menu is well balanced, with exquisite traditional and not-so traditional dishes, along with a good wine selection. Although it is... More

A "must-see" restaurant, because of its round movement, its view. The food is average, and the wines very expensives consindering its quality and that Chile and Maputo valley are one of the best production regions in the world.

We had a brilliant table by the window and the views of the city as the sun went down were superb. It took us a while to get used to the fact that we were moving - albeit slowly! Wine and food were very good and the piano player rising up from the floor below completed a memorable birthday dinner.

El Giratorio is a classic located in an old building in the busy neigborhood of Providencia. Their you will appreciate an amazing view of Santiago while tasting delicious and sofisticated food. They also have great wines and excelent service. El Giratorio is the perfect place to celebrate special moments with family and/or friends.

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.

Thank Marceboom
