My husband love seafood and we've decided to treat ourself with a nice lunch at Donde Agusto which is located in the Mercado central and we were very disappointed. My husband received his entré seabass ceviche and main meal seafood platter at the same time, while I received mine crab meat with sole and green salad 20 minutes later. The... More

Donde Augusto is located in Mercado Central with the seafood market. Our tour guide recommended this restaurant, but we shouldn't have listened to him. The ceviche Agusto tasted really unfresh and some pieces of fish weren't possible to eat. I left my dish unfinished as I didn't dare to eat it. Three in our party had grilled fish. The fishes...

Surprisingly enough this restaurant (in the fish market) was open on Christmas Day and we enjoyed a wonderful crab meal. Not cheap but very good food.

With friends from Santiago who knew what to order we had a great late lunch after fabulous day of touring the sites and sounds of this exciting city. It's busy, has comfortable seating with attentive staff, we started with fresh salsa, warm biscuits, and my new favourite drink Pisco sour. We shared a plate of loco(abalone) which was delicious, then... More

We had one large king crab and two abalone dishes at this restaurant (for 6 people). The food is really fresh and good. The bill is over $200. The price is cheap compare to that in US, but a little high comparing to other restaurants in Santiago.

Save your money and DO NOT eat here! My family wanted to check out the Mercado Central during our Santiago tour, as we had heard good things. But lunch at Donde Augusto was the worst part of our day. Upon arrival, you will be downright hassled by waiters constantly asking if you want to eat at the restaurant. MUCH too... More

Not the greatest neighborhood to be in. It is safe I am sure but the Times Square crowd is there. The food is mediocre at best. They do have guitar player and singers walking around. We had tomato and onion salad, hearts of palm salad and avocado salad these were all nice but we shared a dish of paella which... More

I like to report a terrible rip off at Donde Augusto Restaurant inside Mercado Central, Santiago, Chile. We arrived Santiago with great expectation to visit the sights of this beautiful city for the first time (from Nov 22-25), right after disembarking from the Holland America cruise ship, November 22, 2016. We stayed at the Double Tree Hilton hotel at 2727... More

We were part of a big group, but the quality of the fish and seafood (and wine) was good and it was a lively venue too. Worth going to.

The fish was good, as you'd expect at a major restaurant in the middle of a fish market. The service was friendly but very pushy on getting one to order higher cost items and add-ons; annoying part of their business model. My family of five enjoyed the stop as part of a whirlwind one-day tour of Santiago. However, I'd recommend... More
