Safe on premises parking, Nice riverside setting. Antiquated and rustic venue. Large servings of chilean home style food, great for family lunch and groups of friends. Regulars are local families, groups, very few tourists.

Great local food in a good local hangout.--offers smoking/no smoking areas--this is not a fancy place, but the pollo mariscal (chicken/shellfish stew) is about the best available in this area...very informal and somewhat rustic, but comfortable and very reliable food.
