We had a lunch at Tapiz. Despite de very slow service, we enjoyed our food and the place itself. Quantities were good, price was fair for the food but pretty expensive for the drinks.

My wife and I stopped in here twice in the 4 days we spent in Punta Arenas. The coffee is good, with great service. On one trip we ate the desert and on another we ate the sandwiches. They were very good and very filling. You could split them with one other person.

Popped in for lunch as it looked popular with the locals. As usual had a problem finding a snack without cheese but opted for the Tuna pitta. When it arrived it was loaded with tuna, tomato and lettuce and filled the plate. Very nice although a bit too much lettuce. Staff were efficient and very pleasant.

An inviting venue, but that's about where it stopped for us. 15 mins for menus and another 30 mins for two drinks to be returned. All in, one hour spent for two beers, of which one wasn't the right one, but I didn't want to wait another 15 minutes for the right one to be brought back. All this when... More

First time we came, coffee (cortado) was fab, next time it was bitter and tasted like dirt. The salads and Pita are good though!

Nothing original. Nothing noteworthy. But it was good and we had no complaints. The pastries looked inviting. It felt like a rustic lodge inside.

Really nice place but the prices are higher than expected honestly and the taste is just average. But lúcuma milkshake is amazing there.

Our first place to experience Punta Arenas. Very cosy atmosphere, colorful cafe and a delicious, abundant breakfast. A must in my opinion if you come to Punta Arenas.

Had a coffee there and a pita sandwich. It was tasty but the coffee was terrible. I'd rather drink cheap instant coffee. As is the norm in this area, it's very expensive for the quality. Food not bad, but definitely not great.

We visited here twice for lunch. In a country where few Chileans speak English, it is always a relief to come across restaurants with wait staff that speak English and menus with English translations. The restaurant is very cosy, with good service, reasonably fast and friendly. The coffee is good and so is the hot chocolate but add sugar! There... More
