The restaurant is pretty, nice view. The food was pretty good. However the service was appalling and the chef with a huge ego. Very uneducated waiter. Asked to change a pumpkin for mashed potatoes, they refused even though mashed potatoes was in the menu. Not a pleasant experience at all! Will not visit again!

We had the tasting menu and except for one fish curry dish that was a little bland, everything was yummy. Nice pace of meal, took about 2 hours for the 6 course meal but didn't seem slow at all. Guess we were enjoying the view overlooking the city and port! They don't have wine pairings but they have a pretty... More

Honestly, we were speechless to how gorgeous the lunch degustation was amongst the beautiful setting of Valparaiso. Each dish delivered elegant tastes on the palate and the continuity and timing was spot on. The servers were so friendly and accommodating. When the sun was slightly too warm they graciously offered hats and as much shade on the terrace as possible.... More

For the meals that we had in Chile, we found that the best were in Valparaiso. This was our second best meal for our 10 day trip and it was a late lunch. The location was difficult to find because the mapped location was incorrect and it's entrance was actually further down the same street. Once located we entered and... More

The restaurant is attached to the Casa Higueras Hotel which I would highly recommend. Professional friendly staff willing to adjust whatever to accommodate you. The food was very good and presented with exceptional style. The views from the patio are stunning as it looks over the harbour and Pacific ocean.

I read a review and was intrigued. When we got there, the place was really nice and has an incredible view, all the staff is really nice and professional. When we got the menu, it is a short menu, but everything looked really tempting. The starters we got were very good, but the main dishes were amazing! We also got... More

We entered to the restaurant at 21:30 and nobody attended us. We made some sings to the waiters and nobody came. We just left after 30 minutes without attention.

Very stylish restaurant with attentive and sophisticated service. The menu was full of enticing dishes. The terrace enjoyed a wonderful view towards the bay and harbour of Valparaiso. Service was prompt and excellent coice of wines. Our main course was sliced duck with delicious sauce.
