Cheap authentic, down home Chilean dishes without the heavy price tag. We came in as a huge group and rather than push a bunch of tables together, the waiters opened up a brand new room for us. Quick service with a smile and copious dishes....More

The atmosphere of the place is fine, you can see groups of families and Friends there.. The decor and the details are very similar to a cave. It's located in Plaza Aníbal Pinto. You can try the typical "chorrillana" and drink a good beer too....More

For a short time the quality appeared to be going downhill. However, on recent visits, I am pleased to say that Mastodonte is back to its best.

We ate chorillana and the portions were huge. The one ment for 2 people were enough for 3. The food was ok, the meat a bit chewy (but then again, it was chewy in all the chorillanas I've tried). The waiter was nice and took...More

I'm a bit surprised at the bad reviews. My friend and I went here for dinner last night and it was one of the best meals we had in South America. The food is pretty much different meats with chips and salads. They do burgers...More
