We had a nice meal at this property. It is run by a husband and wife team so really do a nice job. We had the grilled octopus which was excellent. I had a shrimp dish. I liked the location and outdoor dinning

A lovely little setting, romantic and intimate yet also accepting of families and groups. Great food and service and far superior to the massively over rated La Huella.

We ate here twice on a short visit to Jose Ignacio in January. The appetizer with the roasted pumpkin with goat cheese and arugula was so simple, yet delicious. Ambiance was relaxed and quaint. I heard that others complained of bugs sitting outdoors, so we...More
