Great food, lovely atmosphere, impecable service! Definitely for those who count their memories, not their calories... although they do have a vast choice of less caloric food and then the question is why? When you see that meat roasting by the fire...

They are far behind of any lamb done in the open fire in Argentina or South Brazil. The meat was absolutely like a rubber, they look good and are really bad. Tons of flies seating on tour plate kind of play a star war. I...More

Going there I though I would eat some great food. Unfortunately the lamb was really bad. It was hard to chew and the pieces were mostly bones and fat. I also believe the lamb was not fresh. The tomatoes in the salad were not ripe....More

Delicious meal, from appetizers to dessert. The lamb chimichurri was delectable. The razor clams were delicious! The salad and quinoa were great. For an unique meal , eat dinner with a group of people.

Certainly worth the trip out to Lo Barnechea. The fresh king crab starter is simply out of this world, not to mention very generous. The lamb was good but a bit dry, which was a shame, as it was a huge portion. Service was pleasant...More

The lamb was incredible. Tender meat roasted to perfection, asado style.Good side dishes and decent selection of wines. We found the king crab to be average though, and not worth the price, so stick with the lamb.
