Our travel agent recommended Alegre and we were not disappointed. They manage to combine Chilean tradition with the lighter touch and delicacy and the addition of vegetables that Europeans tend to appreciate. We started with Chilean champagne on the delightful terrace before going down to dinner. I had the six course taster menu and my wife eat a la carte.... More

The appetizer were great, we had scallops with bacon foam (exquisite) and avocado puree that was very delicate. We then had the Angus steak which was good and good desserts as well. Despite being a gastronomic restaurant prices are acceptable and service was overall very good. They also have good wine in half bottles. Strongly recommend.

We had the opportunity to dine at Alegre when we were in Valparaiso. This is a very fine restaurant with a nice choice of appetizers, mains and dessert. Service was very good. The restaurant is at the lower level of the Palacio Astoreca hotel so the view through the window isn't great. It overlooks a small untidy park. But we... More

A charming experience in a quite and sophisticated restaurant. The white wine wasn´t as chill it should be. Very good food.

Quality of the food was OK, but the portions were disappointingly small. Didn't represent good value for money.

The service was faultless but the food very disappointing. Much too much focus on foam and fancy combinations but not nearly enough on whether the basics of taste and texture were successful. They weren't. The steak was tough, the sea bass too fishy, everything was over-salted (a common experience in Chile) and generally just not that nice. Expensive too. Definitely... More

The fact that our cab driver told us Alegre is the best restaurant in Chile admittedly didn't carry much weight, but in conjunction with a recommendation from a popular wine club in Santiago, it was enough to give this restaurant a chance.Tucked among the almost manic pile of buildings stacked on the side of Cerro Alegre in Valparaiso, Restaurant Alegre...

Happenned by this place as we were walking in Valparaiso and just like the menu, we were there for lunch and it was just delightful. The portions were perfectly sized and the tastes blended perfectly. The restaurant is attached to a hotel that also looks very cool and would be on our list should we be that way again. It... More
