We were two people on short visit to Santiago. Since we love seafood we tried El Ancla. First night ceviche: Just wonderful (and plentiful). Second night we just had to revisit. Ordered the imperial seafood plate. Fantastic!

Best meal we have had in Santiago. The Ceviche was the very tasty, the fish and shell fish were. We has the razor clams and eel stew and both loved it. We will go back!
