Third visit, this time with friends over from England. There were only 15-20 people there.One cook, or I should say warmer upper, as all the "hot" food was brought out of fridges and warmed up in an oven and was obviously leftovers from the Sunday. The seafood and salad bar were the same as normal.We were not offered any meat and, when my husband asked for some, the waiter came with 3 very small pieces of fatty beef, no chips or mash to go with it. There was one dish of pasta,plus pastel de choclo and fried fish, the fat needs changing as the batter was dark brown! Also two other types of fish, not fried, with two different sauces,no accompaniment except for a spoonful of sauce.One bottle of wine,nothing special and 2 cans of Pepsi. Total for 4 people over 54.000 pesos.57 pounds plus tip, it wasn´t the waiter´s fault!- robbery.

I have reviewed this restaurant before and, like many others, gave it a bad review but my husband persuaded me to go again today. What a big improvement. The staff were a lot more friendly and helpful, the serving was much quicker, the meat came with the chips (fries) or rice on the same tray so both were served together.The soft drinks have halved in price, 1.200 pesos a bottle, standard price in restaurants. Starters are salads and seafood. Main meals - pasta, paella, fish and chips, chicken, pork and beef. For 2 of us with 2 bottles of pop and 10% tip, no dessert (that´s extra) total 24.000 pesos. A big improvement.

Starters are very good, especially the seafood but the main meals tend to be cool to cold and the meat and veg,etc come at different times, therefore one gets cold. Watch out cos they add a suggested tip onto the bill (10%), you can refuse to pay it. Drinks are extra to the price of the meal and I think expensive but I live in Santiago so for foreigners maybe not!
