Fodor's Review

In 1913, a French ship called the Ville de Dijon sank off the coast of Papudo. The beams, doors, portholes, and other sundry parts were salvaged to build The Red Ship. Poet Pablo Neruda once frequented the spot. The ceiling is papered with love letters to the restaurant written by patrons. Tables and chairs are a delightful hodgepodge of styles and colors, and the tiny bar is eclectically furnished with bric-a-brac. The menu is dominated by seafood, but includes treats such as fried empanadas filled with cheese and basil.
