Service was appalling. Food took forever to arrive. We were late to a conference as a result of the 1.5 hour wait for dreadful food. Catch a taxi to Plaza de Armas and enjoy non pretentious great tasting food, instead.

We ate here on the night of our return from an Antarctic cruise. The hotel was quite full and the restaurant had clearly been caught on the hop but the solution is simple.Stop taking bookings if you realise you cant cope! Our booking was accepted at 7.15 but we would happily have gone over the courtyard to he other restaurant... More

Excellent food and wines served in a good ambiance by very well trained staff. While in Santiago, we dined 3 times at 'El Cid' - this restaurant deserves the top rating!

I had a business dinner at El Cid's while staying at the Tower. In short, it was excellent. Well prepared, interesting good with good service. It's wonderful to have the option to sit outside with a view of a very pleasant pool.

Had dinner here with a group of 5 friends. We had a quiet dinner with very good food. We experienced impeccable service driven by waiters who anticipated your every need without swarming over you. We were not VIPs by any stretch, yet the chef send complimentary starters and desserts! The waiters had no problem at all splitting our check individually... More

Deliciously, beautifully plated food, fine dining experience. The fish dishes are my favorite. If you stay in the Sheraton Santiago, eat at least one dinner in, you shall be pleasantly surprised. I would not go there necessarily else, but if you stay there why not!

The food its ok, very varied, up to the Sheraton or any high hotel, but certainly what made the difference was a lady called MACARENA Lannaro, very worried about customers and their needs, responded very kind to us all our doubts and gave us a map of the city, was a very important part our visit in Santiago, definitely the...

I won't be dining often at El Cid as the experience made quite a hole in my wallet, but it was worth every Peso. The setting looking out over the beautiful pool and patio set the scene for a scrumptious meal. We shared a Tiger Prawn appetizer and a Caesar salad. Her main was a home-made pasta and mine was...

Enjoyed El Cid twice, once a three-star experience and once a five-star experience. First meal was a dinner of lovely appetizer and ceasar salad, followed by a tough and overdone "wagyu" bone-in ribeye steak. The meat was tough and overcooked, stringy and chewy and in no way a "wagyu" product. But service and wine pairings great. Second night was a... More
