Discreet venue down dead end street, close to our accommodation. 3 floors; top terrace bar, 2nd floor quiet restaurant, 1st floor main area restaurant with stage and live music, ground floor entrance. Went at 9pm after dinner with the expectation that the music would start at this time... More

This is a place you have to know and try in Santiago. You will not find it by chance as it is in a no-exit street but it is worth going. I had the entrañas and they were very well cooked, with mashed potatoes with mushrooms. The service was a bit slow but no problems, we were bot in a... More

Our frist lunch in Santiago. Nearest place to our apartment. We ordered sea food - little bit acidly, then I tried completely new taste - sweet corn with chicken and veal meat and my wife ordered sea food soup. Restaurant is old and foul. Waiter speaks English. Service is better side.

In a tiny street, 2 blocks from La Moneda, you find one of the last "picadas" in Santiago. We went a Saturday to celebrate a birthday, and we spent almost 5 hours eating, dancing, and singing. You are going to be surprised that passing this humble facade, you will find fresh oysters (they have their own oyster nursery) and great... More

The downside was the Chicken with whote sauce ( not really tasty). Ive got a good pork rib. The highlight was the really delicious kross stout craft beer, served on a 500 ml jar... More

I had the house cerviche, which was very tasty,though the toast was dry and burnt. The service was very friendly and prompt, and the music bounced along. This is the kind of thing Chileans do so well

The worst paella I have ever eaten. Plain and simply rice with a few token bits of seafood dropped in. Awful. The waiter did not have a clue of what things on the menu were. We asked for an avocado with crab, we received a mashed up mess. Avoid. There are much better places.

Hidden in a small street at Santiago's downtown, La Chimenea is a good place to spend some time drinking wine and smoking cigars. It's is widely frequented by local people, especially at happy hour during weekdays. The place offers very good wines for a reasonable price and if it is necessary, you can ask for a decanter and the sommelier... More
