Aquí Está Coco Review

This restaurant—by far the best place in Santiago to eat seafood—burned down in 2008. The good news is that the owner, chef "Coco" Pacheco, is rebuilding it in the same place, and it should be open by the time you read this. With Pacheco still in place, it is poised to reemerge as the city's best fish restaurant. The new building will retain the intimacy of the former old house, with its separate, individually decorated small dining rooms. Traditional specialties, like grilled corvina (sea bass), will still be on the menu, although new "more modern" concoctions are also promised.

    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. http://www.aquiestacoco.cl/home_ing.htm (Note: The rating is low only because I couldn't leave it blank.)

    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

    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

    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.

    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...
