You can find this Spanish style restaurant right in the heart of Providencia.
As one of the few places in Providencia they have a terrace behind the restaurant. So you avoid all the noise coming from the street.
We went with 6 friends so we were mainly interested in fingerfood, or ´Picoteos´ the way Chileans say it. We ordered an Iberic Cheese and meat table, which was a bit pricy but very nice with fine quality products. What I really recommend are the ´croquetas formentera´, fried potato rolls. Allthough we shared them (5p.) I could have easily eaten all of them myself.

The tap beer from Mahou was nice and cold. Service was good, fast and attentive.

Restaurant was recommended by front desk at double tree and was a great choice for local meats and seafood. Short cab ride from Av. Vitacura. Great service. Be sure to try their pisco sours...they are yummy local drunk but watch out they can have bigger effect on you later.

Very good menu, both at lunch and dinner. Vicente, the owner, is always taking care of every detail. The octupus is delicious as well as the tortillas. Choose the outside tables if the weather is appropiate. The service is also very good.

This is a place with a very nice atmosphere, but food is really poor. Specially if youy ask for beef, they don't have a clue on how to prepare it.

I asked for an entrecotte, and I god a very hard and slim piece of meat, it was as thick as a slice of ham, and tasteless.

There are much better restaurants in Santiago to have typical food from spain.

Went to this restaurant located in Las Urbinas for lunch, the restaurant is a house with two floors and a nice terrace with old barrels for an authentic feel. The menu is full of nice dishes, tapas and main courses as well as a decent selection of wines and beers. The service is a bit chaotic but fast, no problems with this. Well priced, suggest to make a reservation if you plan going with a group of friends or just go there for a quick "tapa" and some beer "caña" for a snack. Recommended!
