After waiting patiently til 8pm for opening time, we were initially disappointed that they were fully booked, however the hostess quickly chased us down the street to advise they had one free table. Lucky for us because the meal was extraordinary. By far the best king crab coupe in all our Chilean travels. Dessert of local berries in a syrup... More

Came here for dinner. We had a great bottle of wine and, still full from a late lunch, shared two appetizers. The first was mussels steamed in a white wine sauce which were excellent. The second was razor clams with Parmesan cheese which were also very good. The portions were huge! You can easily have an appetizer as a main... More

Terrific food, great service, superb views and atmosphere, eclectic wine selection -- and on stilts! This tiny 10-table restaurant in a palafito overlooking Fiordo de Castro (or mud, depending on the tides) is a gem. A limited menu of mostly great local seafood, but ask for specials which aren't listed. Wines by the glass vary but are all special. The... More

This little place, built on palafitos, is small and you could walk right by without seeing it. But it is charming inside with seating at nine tables overlooking the fjord. Service was very friendly. We had a delicious appetizer of razor clams with melted cheese. I had what amounted to baby back ribs that was excellent, while my wife had... More

From the nice decoration outside to the simple but impeccable menu and the amazing wine selection, with plenty of small local producers, this small, greatly located restaurant is attended by its owners (one of the is the cooker!) and details are meticulously taken care of. A must in this area. Keep up the good work guys!

This is a great local restaurant serving beautiful meals prepared from fresh local sources. They have a wide selection of local beers as well as ample choice of wines and spirits. There is a set meal on Sundays, and a la carte the rest of the week. It is worth travelling to Chiloe just to go to this restaurant! Even... More
