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.
