Don't know what the fuss is about here, much better places to go in playa Santiago. Service is patchy, place itself a dirty shack with ancient tables and chairs. Food nothing to write home about. It's location is the only good thing about it.

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Does anyone know when this restaurant opens for the season? We were in Santiago last week and were very disappointed that it was closed as we've been there in the past and really enjoyed it.

I agree with all the above answers. We ate there just once because we were seldom 'home' at lunchtime and they close at 4.30. If they had opened in the evening we would have gone then
