It seems whenever we go to Santiago, we absolutely MUST go to Donde Augusto for seafood. There are some dishes that we seem to order again, and again. The razor clams with cheese, the calamari, and the congrio, and of course the Pisco Sours! The...More

This is primarily a fish market and the ambiance is accordingly. Very busy but with attentive good service. The menu options are extensive. The food is good. Beware of constant restaurateur solicitations when walking thru the market.

This used to be a very good seafood restaurant, but now it has become largely a tourist trap. It is very over-priced and the service is poor; the Venezuelan waiter was unfamiliar with the menu, with which drinks and which fish were available, thought that...More

The old train station that houses the Donde Augusto was designed by Eiffel(Eiffel Tower) and is spectacular. The food is even better than the architecture. We had 8 guys and we could not finish the Bowl of mixed seafood, pork, chicken, chorizo and seafood. It...More

Having being in Santiago many many times and having said that the Mercado Central is a MUST visit place in town it's quite sad to say our last trip to Donde Augusto restaurant (a synonym of seafood meca) was quite disappointing. When we arrived there...More

The centolla is the large southern king crab found that is  found off the Pacific coasts of South America, especially from Valdivia to Cape Horn. There are four options of centolla at Donde Augusto, the always crowded central restaurant at the market. My favorite is the whole centolla,...More

One would assume that the best cooks would work on the one place every tourist visits in Santiago. My fish was rubbery, badly cut; it looked like an octopus rather than a conger. My wife's fish was exactly the same, skin was almost raw. I...More
