Overpriced. Food quality average to poor. Asked for sea bass, served thin dry fibrous fish. Strong pressure to order king crab grossly overpriced. Avoid. At this price range try La Mar or so many better choices in Santiago.

This place was very busy when we visited, despite this the service was immediate, friendly and helpful. The food was OK but apart from the congrio which was excellent, was nothing special, the shrimp and cheese empanada was a disappointment.

Friends who met us in Santiago took us to lunch at El Galeon. We all had something different, mostly seafood, though I opted for a salad, meat empanadas and a very good draft beer. It was fresh and delicious, and the sampling of seafood was...More
