Didn't try them all but this has to one of the better eateries in San Pedro. The servers have all be trained. The ladies all knew which side of the person to serve and which side to remove a plate. Very unusual in this day and age where plates are often handed over the table if the recipient is in... More

As other writers have alluded to this restaurant is 25 metres off the beaten ‘main’ track and is a rock well worth turning over. The food was excellent. The service faultless and wine/beer selection up-there. If you are a couple wanting a place to chat and romance this is number one San Pedro. BTW the waitress took time to decode... More

You will feel the nice service with waiters offering you what to select from a small but delicious menu. Daily they offer a menu with 3 courses at a reasonable price and enough options to choose from. They have nice wines sold by the glass if you are not into drinking a whole bottle of the simple but good variety... More

The restaurant at the Hotel Kimal has a Bolovian chef that prepares a fusion Atacamian food. It's really delicious, every nighy there is a suggestion menu with 3 courses with a very fair price. I recommend to try the Pisco Sour Rica rica

Don't be afraid to try places off of Caracoles, the main street, so enjoyable dinning. Found the service and food at Paccah's to be excellent. Compared to other spots in town, especially the over-crowded walking route thru town, it was no more expensive even though connected to the Kimal Hotel.

The food and service here is pretty good, the owner (I assume) is friendly and enthusiastic towards the food and general atmosphere. Nice place

Firstly I'd like to say that I realise our visit was on New Year's Eve and so the restaurant was very busy. The restaurant offered a set menu which seemed reasonable including 3 courses and a drink for 30.000 pesos per person. Great. There were some aspects of our meal we really enjoyed like the salmon tartare starter, this was... More

As we were staying in the Kimal hotel we ate here a couple of times during our stay. The food was beautifully presented, delicious and reasonably priced. Our favourites were the Congreo (conger eel soup ), The asparagus and palm hearts and the Chinar tart....all very tasty!

To be honest, I almost didn't go in because of the guy standing outside who was trying to call people over to eat there... Sometimes they just rub me wrong and I get spiteful. But I'm glad I made an exception! They were out of a lot of their wine and beer selections, but it was a busy weekend so... More
