Fodor's Review

Inspired by Laura Esquivel's romantic 1989 novel Like Water for Chocolate, this Bellavista standout started out focusing on the aphrodisiacal qualities of food but has since shifted to more standard Chilean dishes. It is, however, still one of the most popular in Bellavista with excellent value at very reasonable prices.

Did not live up to reputation

Just as with Azul Profundo, the wine selection and atmosphere were very good, but we were disappointed with our meals. Our meat was exceptionally tough (though I notice that many places in Chile serve very tough meat/seafood... perhaps this is cultural?), and our appetizers were bland. Service was very good, though, and our waitress waited outside with us in the chilly weather until our cab arrived.

Que Bueno

Great food, atmosphere, near hallucinogenic margaritas. We eat here every year on our way to the Andes.

Best Value in Santiago, with great concepts

Apart from all the great food, try the candied rose petals at the bar...says it all really
