The food is OK, very varied, up to the Sheraton or any high hotel, but certainly what made the difference was a lady called Maracarena Lannaro, very worried about customers and their needs, responded very kind to us all our doubts and gave us a map of the city, was a very important part of our visit in Santiago, definitely...

I was in doubt about what to eat and the Maitre helped me explaining some details of the dish, Smoked and Grilled Salmon with Artchoke. He suggsted also one white wine, a Sauvignon Blanc, which was a great combination. Desert, Tiramisu and coffee completed the dinner. Service was very good.

What I like about this restaurant even though it's in the hotel it provides a very relaxing romantic atmosphere. It doesn't matter if you are alone or accompanied. The lighting in the restaurant is another factor in making you feel comfortable along with the likable waiters being available only when you need them and they not interfering in your conversation....

My wife loved the salmon mousse appetizer and I was impressed with the presentation and teh flavor of the crab croquets. My wife found the seafood risotto to be exceptionally creamy and delicious...

This has been clearly one of my best dinning experiences. The service and the attention to detail is superb. My only regret is that I didn't arrive with enough appetite to finish my plate.. We ordered two starters, one a seafood dish that was excellent and the other was mozzarella and shrimps covered with melted cheese ina balloon shape. Tasty... More

I hadn't visited the Sheraton for years and it was just as great as the last time. The surroundings are always among the most attractive in Santiago, and the buffet menu was varied, tasty and plentiful. All in all a good experience.
