By far the best meal we have had in Chile. The ambiance is laid back but also quite stylish. Incredible selection of wine and perfectly mixed cocktails. The staff and owner could not be more helpful helping us with our selection as well as getting us get a cab as we were in a mad dash to get back to... More

Good food, good quality of service and overall good old vinyl records. You know, those we used to have in the 60's and 70's.

Highly recommend Cafe Vinilo. Amazing food. Staff were very helpful and spoke great english. We had conejo casablanca, Ossobuco beef, cheesecake and chocolate brownie. And the dishes were all excellent. This restaurant is also recommend by the Lonely Planet, we read some of the less positive reviews below but ignored them, the food and wine were amazing.

This place was highly recommended but did not excite. Food was OK, atmosphere very casual but nothing particularly special

Was disappointed in menu options since my last visit. What I ordered was ok not great as my last visit. The wine of the day was great and a great price at $3,500 a glass.

Ate dinner here as it wasn't far from our hotel and a downhill walk. The decor of the restaurant was sparse but interesting. Especially liked the art displayed as I had purchased a picture done by the artist earlier in the day at his gallery. Had the osso bucco, very good. Our server Katriana was delightful. Overall a good choice... More

Nice atmosphere, excellent food but we waited a long time to be served even the appetizers. Understaffed. Once the manager became aware of the problem he immediately addressed it and put the entrées on the house. We would definitely give it a second shot.

Good wholesome food and friendly atmosphere make this a popular restaurant for tourists and did not disappoint. Do not be in a hurry as the service is a little slow but the food was worth the wait.

Save your money and not less important, save yourself agony, and avoid this place. Have a drink on the bar, if you must, but go no further. We were 2 people, both amazed with how distastefully all dishes were prepared. The cooks here must hate their jobs. The ingredients are not fresh, poorly cooked, and all radiate dismal London looks.... More
