We received very good recommendations of Meli so the expectations were high. The place is very nice, the store at the entrance is cool and organized, lots of gourmet foods and spices. The restaurant is right behind, we loved the decoration and the fire pit on the middle of the saloon. First impression was good! Then it came the service...... More

During our stay in Lanquihue we were to Frutillar for the day and we picked Meli to have lunch based on Tripadvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. The restaurant is 2km away from frutillar and it's on the shore of the lake so the view is excellent, it has a mini market with some boutique products used in the... More

Excellent food, very well attended and they also have a small market with local food-sauces. Fair variety of wines and beers. Big garden, with playground, perfect for small kids to be in spacious place while adults enjoy the food. I recommend it.

We spend a whole week in frutillar. This is by far the best restaurant in the area, and it's at the same price than the other restaurants. The best you will get in frutillar

The place from the outside doesn't look that appealing, despite its great location by the lake. But as soon as you come in, you are welcomed by a lovely staff and the atmosphere is very cosy. Delicious wine and bread with Merken helped you waiting for your meal. And it is worth the wait as everything is made as it... More

This restaurant is located right on the lake with an open kitchen so you can see what they are cooking. Quick service and delicious food. The pappardelle was very good with a fantastic sauce! The decor is very rustic and comfortable with a little playground in front. This restaurant is five stars all the way!!!!!!!!!!

We stop by for dinner while we are in Chile for the summer and enjoy the menu, service and ambiance. Last week we had a chance to partake of a wonderful combination of a Chef Salad with the Risotto dish. Salad had a nice diversity of greens/lettuce that were all crispy fresh. The Risotto was loaded with mushrooms that fit... More

Outside the view is SO great, at the border of Lago Llanquihue; inside the -Cordero- was amazing! The decoration very rustic and the service great too! Has a little shop where you can buy gourmet mustard, chocolates & other delicious things! If you're going to the south of Chile, don't miss this stop

We arrived exhausted after over a day of traveling. We had a fabulous lunch. Service was attentive, place was quiet on a weekday afternoon. Our lack of Spanish wasn't a problem.

The food we eat today and what our ancestors ate is part of our roots, our culture, our history; is a reflection of who we are and where we come from and is this story that we want to rescue and share Emporio Meli. Come and enjoy the best of the countryside and the sea in Frutillar.
