Fodor's Expert Review Donde el Guatón

$$ La Serena Chilean

Popular with locals, this European-style steak house serves everything from shish kebab to steak with eggs. The early republic-themed decor and waiters clad in the traditional garb of the Chilean cowboy, or huaso, narrowly avoid coming off as contrived, but ultimately present a fitting backdrop for the plethora of hearty local fare. With its several intimate dining areas off the main salon and good selection of wines from the nearby Elqui Valley, this is a good place to enjoy a romantic, candlelit meal. On weekends there is live folk guitar music.
