One of the best restaurants I've ever been to. All 3 appetizers were great, all 3 main courses were great, both deserts were great. Freshest king crab I've ever had.

I have been to Damiana Elena several times, and it never ceased to puzzle me, both in terms of decor, atmosphere and cuisine. The decor is an ecclectic mix of European Baroque style and epoca and a very typical Patagonical style, which are not 2 things that mix easily, but strangely, together with the very personal attention from the owners,...

The building is "chic", the service very polite and the food great. It is not the first time I go there and always find the same good quality.

a nice building with a an interior still more or less with its original domestic layout. Food was excellent, service was good but unobtrusive. The atmosphere was congenial.

A fantastic place. Really a magical experience. The place is so nice and the food so good. Very well served. I keep on going everytime I am in town. Don t be scared because the waiter reads the menu to you, and no the prices. The prices are very good. For USD 100 a couple will have a great dinner... More

We had a great culinary and human experience! The staff was extremely friendly and polite. The food was really delicious: gnocchi were excellent (and it is said by an Italian!) and so was the king crab! Good wines choice. Everything in the restaurant was smart and there was a wonderful atmosphere... a really jewel in Punta Arenas... Surely we will... More

This restaurants has a very good food quality, they have another way of introduce their dishes options because they don´t have a menu, so the waiter in charge of your table gives you the different options of pasta, meat, fish and seafood they have for that day. People there is very nice and make you feel in a very friendly... More

This was one of my favourite dining experiences in Punta Arenas. The restaurant is in a large old mansion in a residential area of town with a few upscale selections for dinner. Their pisco sour was amazing!

Ridiculously fresh local fish, seasonal menu, inspired by traditional Italian with w nouveau spin. Charming Victorian atmosphere, popular with locals and tourists alike.
