We decided to give this a try as it scored so highly here.
Yes the concept is interesting, no menu but instead a conversation with the chef about your tastes and his suggestions. When it came down to it though, his suggestions were about steering you towards what was in effect a very narrow menu. Choices of protein came down to one fish type, one beef cut and chicken. He threw lamb in their as an alternative but admitted that it came from the supermarket and had probably been frozen.
We started with aperetifs which seemed to take for ever coming even though there were only two others in the restaurant. No spirits available at the bar as they don't have a licence yet.
We were offered grilled Camembert as a starter. It was well presented, well cooked but not particularly adventurous.
There were only 2 choices for wine. We opted for the Pinot Noir which came after the mains arrived was very young and too cold.
The mains were rock fish served with a octopus sauce and quinoa. The fish was well cooked but the quinoa had too much lemon juice which overpowered everything. The other main was chicken cooked with soft cheese served in a herby mash with a very sweet sauce. The dish simply didn't work, nine of the flavours came through. The soft cheese element was a mistake for an oven cooked dish.
The service was very slow, taking over an hour to get mains. As I said, there were only two other diners.
On reflection, the concept doesn't work for me. I like to mull over a menu and consider options for both food and wine. Even if you like the concept, it is ultimately about the food and this really didn't deliver.
Final cost - 50,000 Chilean pesos with tip for two aperetifs, one starter, two mains and a very disappointing wine. You can get much better for less in the area.
