We ordered 1 salad and 1 entree for the 2 of us, and it was more than enough. No hassle about splitting meals. Both items were absolutely delicious and well prepared. May try to eat here again before we leave.

We found it hard to find a restaurant open on Sunday evening but were delighted when our hotel came up with this place, highly rated and only two blocks away from our hotel. We were even more delighted when we arrived at the place which had a lovely atmosphere and decor and a very friendly and helpful waitress albeit her... More

We knew that we would be arriving in the Lake Region of Chile on Thanksgiving Day. We had done some research ahead of time and decided that Mercado 605 would be our destination. After having a late lunch in Puerto Varas we stopped by Mercado 605 and made a reservation for dinner for 8:30. The restaurant was half-full when we... More

I went there as a recommendation from the owner of my hotel in Puerto Varas, for vegetarian food. They did have 2 different veggie options, of which one was sold out. So I took the other one (quinnotto) which was good. As a desert I ordered white chocolate cheesecake. What I got looked weird, but still gave it a try.... More

Gastronomical heaven! We were lured in by the"wine wall" full of Chilean reds. The mixed "tablas" of meats and cheeses was divine. Followed that up with a shared plate of mussels en verde salsa, which was a beautiful platter of mussels, chopped avocado, green onions, cucumber, and just the right amount of cilantro and a touch of ginger. Wow! Finished... More

I am not a professional reviewer, and this is just my opinion. Following a daylong tour of Chiloe Island, my wife and I decided to walk the short distance from our Puerto Varas hotel to Mercado 605. We arrived there around 8:00 p.m. and were the only customers - Chileans eat late... Our first waiter was not as "warm and... More

A nice ambience, an interesting menu and good wine. The staff are friendly. The tapas is a really good idea and the menu offers something tasty for everyone - vegetarians and fish lovers. A little walk from the centre itself but worth making the effort. The restaurant is just up from the beach so you can walk back into town... More
