Not recommended. The food is overpriced and just not good. The crab (centolla), was over cooked and almost tasteless. The salmón ceviche looked and tasted like it had been made 2 days before. Ceviche is the easiest thing in the world to make fresh - and the salmon fisheries are right off the coast of puerto Natales. It should have been fantastic. The pisco sour was pre-made and probably purchased in a mix. The waiters were apathetic and inattentive. The setting is old fashioned and clunky but may appeal to older, traditional people. There is plenty of good seafood in Natales. But this place isn’t providing it. I feel bad posting such a negative review. But I got sucked in by a positive review and was so disappointed to waste my time and money.

My wife and I stopped here for lunch. Nice looking place with linen tablecloths and napkins. I had a seafood soup and a conger eel main course. Both dishes were fresh tasting and well prepared. Service was also efficient. Overall a very good experience.

Stopped in for a late dinner on the eve of Valentine’s Day. The waiter was friendly and the food was good. We had two different kinds of salmon. The food was moderately priced but the portions were large.

The food was good, as in many other places in Chile. Disappointment in the end -coffee and "misunderstanding" in the bill

This was recommended to us by a local but went and was disappointed. Food wasn't bad but just lacked flavor and felt overpriced. However, the service was great.
