The place is beautifully decorated, the staff is quite casual. They open at 20h for dinner and by 21h when we arrived on a Saturday night they were out of two options from the five dish menu. The place was half empty. They do not offer wine per glass and they did not have any small bottles available either (even though these were listed on the wine list). The food and wine we chose was good, but the portions are very small for the price and overall experience. It might have been just a bad night for the restaurant, but for this price there are plenty of other places in Santiago to have a great dinner experience. All in all, it's good, but not that special. Hope they improve their service and offer in the future.

Perhaps not for everyone - we came for the Sunday brunch which was a set menu - vegetarian.
Wonderfully colourful and indeed tasty.
Friendly staff in a quirky setting.
$30000 pesos for a two x two course brunch and drinks.

You can watch the chefs at work on your delicious food. Modest wine selection. Good service. What more can you ask for?

We really loved the restaurant. The chef loves his food and took his time explaining all the ingredients to us (in English). I enjoyed a lamb and roasted vegetable dish - the lamb and every vegetable, of which there were many, were perfectly cooked. My husband enjoyed his beef rib, again with many accompaniments all perfectly cooked. Everything in each dish was so fresh and tasty and went together perfectly. We also had a delicious carrot and ginger cake with ice cream. The portions were generous and the restaurant was very quirky and had a great vibe. It was also reasonably priced. We thoroughly recommend it.

This place is awesome. Their lunch specials are inexpensive and delicious (try the ribs), the house made beer is excellent. Definitely worth a visit.
