Description: Welcome to Ficus, one of the culinary icons Chillan. Since 1992, our restaurant has been synonymous with the best food in town. During the first years we distinguish ourselves by our delicious pizzas, what then add a wide variety of Italian meals. Today we have incorporated different dishes among which our grilled meats.

Located in a residential neighborhood in a converted house (church?), this place can be easily overlooked. But locals fill it up because the food is very good and the prices are a bargain (unusual in Chile where a typical dinner for two runs $80 and up!).

Although the food is good, service sucks, really slow and terrrible attention. I knew this but food the pizzas were worthy, so a couple of friends and I went last Saturday. It was the most bizarre night ever. They said that there was not table for us in the terrace (there were a couple of emtpy tables), so we had to stay inside, and while we were there, food took ages to come, music was the most boring thing ever, and the entertainer started saying very annoying jokes to our table out of nowhere... next time I'll just ask to take away.

In the 2 years that have passed since your review, we have made great efforts to improve our service. We have almost doubled the staff aiming to provide a service with the same quality as our food that you enjoyed so much.
Most weekends we have live music or an entertainer. Most of our clients enjoy it, but we also have available a dining hall away from the music where you can have a calmer meal. And as you mentioned, you can always order food by phone and get it delivered to your place.
I apologize for not replying to you sooner, but we just started managing our trip advisor page.
We hope to see you soon again!

We stay in Chillan from time to time and have had some trouble finding a retaurant.. We stay in the Paso Nevado hotel.... and we noticed a report on Ficus, which is a short walk from the hotel. We tried it and it was most satisfactory.... the food was good and so was the service. We will return without doubt..
Food is pizzas,pasta and a parilla..... I had the steak and it was well cooked.

Ficus is a few blocks from the Hotel Paso Nevado. It is an excellent place frequented by the locals. The contemporary decor was very stylish, but we were perfectly comfortable in our jeans and casual attire. Because we visited in the summer ,we enjoyed sitting outside in their small pleasant garden area. Our waiter spoke English and provided outstanding customer service. The food was absolutely delicious. The three of us had apetizers, salad, a pile of assorted grilled meat (a paradilla), pisco sours before dinner, my mother and I shared a bottle of wine, and my husband had beer. The restaurant provided a complimentary liqueurs after dinner. Our entire feast came to $48.00 US. Prior to the staff at our hotel recomending this lovely place, we walked down to the plaza and looked over the other options in the area. I firmly believe this is the best value and food in Chillan.
