Fodor's Review

This restaurant—by far the best place in Santiago to eat seafood—is run by the admittedly showy chef "Coco" Pacheco. The restaurant, which burned down in 2008 but was rebuilt soon thereafter, is intimate and kooky at the same time, with a variety of different themed dining rooms, including one which has diners eating at a boat-turned-table. Traditional specialties, like grilled corvina (sea bass) and the classic Chilean machas a la parmesana (razor clams au gratin) are very popular items. But that doesn't mean you should skip the urchins, octopus, king crab, or swordfish with charquican (a Chilean stew), either. You might want to go in a group, so you can try a bit of everything.

Very good meal, excellent service, rooms needed renovation

Excellent shrimp a la pil pil and crabcake. Fish are at top quality. Desserts original and unknown for us as it was our first time in Chile : lukuma mouss and chirimayo tart are out of what you know. Great winelist. Excellent service. Decor needed to be renewed...

Aquí Está Coco Review

Four of us dined on a Friday evening. The decor was amazing and fun, the service excellent and prompt, the value for the price quite good. The food was hit or miss however. Good were: spinach blini/centolla appetizer, congrio mai mai. Not so good: reineta salteado (too salty), congrio salteado (boring), pebre (watery). The chocolate dessert trio was uninspired and disturbing presentation. But, for the decor, it is a fun place to go and have a

great time being treated well.

Aquí Está Coco Review

I am living in Santiago right now just around the corner from Coco. It finally reopened about three weeks ago and had dinner there last weekend. Very nice. Beautifully decorated; wonderful service; and the food was great. Prices in the 8,000 -12,000 CP ($16-$20 American) for entrees. With an appetizer, two glasses of wine and dessert and coffee we spent 50,000 CP (a little under $100), including a 15% tip. Tipping here is 10%, but I always throw in

a little more. You will need a reservation, at least on weekends, as the crowds have already returned. I have only eaten there once, so not yet ready to give a 5 on food, but it's well worth a visit.

Aquí Está Coco Review

The end of April opening date appears optomistic. Construction is in progress, but its still looking a long way from completion... forced to rate so just picked 1's...

Aquí Está Coco Review

The description is amazing both in our 2009 Fodor's book & here on the website. We would love to go here - mouth waters when reading about it - but apparently, this restaurant burned down in 2008. Looks like they are working on reconstruction, but it has not reopened yet. Not sure why this wasn't updated but here's the link to the restaurant's letter. (Note: The rating is low only because I couldn't leave

it blank.)
