There is no better place to try pork ribs than El Sauce. If you go, make sure that you go with time, because the cue might be long (but definitely worthy). The food is home-made and the recipes are from generations. While you wait, you...More

We have friends who live in Cartagena who invited us for a wine tour in the upper Casablanca region (fantastic!) and then lunch here. We knew from others this was a "cerdo" restuarant (pork and more pork) with a good reputation. It deserves it!! There...More

The best ribs I had in Chile, delicious! Be aware that they serve a huge portion. The side dishes like salad and potatoes are rather simple and mediocre. Restaurant itself is very basic as well, an old house in a small village. Do not forget...More

Amazing pork. Just go and stuff your face with meat. I don't even know if they offer anything other than ribs or pork chops. It doesn't matter. They don't need to. It's about a 5 minute walk to Casa Marin Vineyard as well, so you...More
