While dining out in Barrio Lasterria and enjoying a drink before dinner in a place local to that neighborhood, we were told this spot was a must hit dining location at the "other end of town." A remote enough spot it was necessary to cab out to it, and get a car to get back into the more central part... More

Seafood is the name of the game here! The fish could be good if it were kept much more simple. The chef tries to be inventive but his recipes have to many complex tastes. The ceviche was just ok. As I spend more time in Chile I am convinced the cooking is just so so. My conclusion is that if... More

I have been to La Mar a few times during my stay in Santiago. The restaurant has a very nice environment and the food is divine! Loved it. The ceviche is perfect! Go for the trilogy one! The Pisco Sour drink is a must! Do order it! My favorite place in Santiago. I do recommend!

So maybe Im a little spoiled because I went to La Mar in Lima which was excellent. So I was a bit disappointed with the one in Santiago. First to start the waiter was a little pushy and not very friendly. Not to mention I speak Spanish so it was not as if I couldn't read what was on the... More

Over the years I have eaten in Gaston’s restaurants in NYC, Madrid, Miami and Lima. My experience was inconsistent, from excellent in Madrid and NYC to very poor in Miami. This time, in Santiago, we had it at it’s best. Good service, fresh, well cooked, creative peruvian dishes. Everything was delicious. I highly recommend this restaurant in beautiful vitacura quarter.

A charming atmosphere and an extensive menu add to the enjoyment of the fish of your choice. The waiters are helpful in selecting a dinner that suits your tastes. You won't go away hungry, and the cost won't leave a large hole in your wallet.
