Not the greatest neighborhood to be in. It is safe I am sure but the Times Square crowd is there. The food is mediocre at best. They do have guitar player and singers walking around. We had tomato and onion salad, hearts of palm salad and avocado salad these were all nice but we shared a dish of paella which... More

I like to report a terrible rip off at Donde Augusto Restaurant inside Mercado Central, Santiago, Chile. We arrived Santiago with great expectation to visit the sights of this beautiful city for the first time (from Nov 22-25), right after disembarking from the Holland America cruise ship, November 22, 2016. We stayed at the Double Tree Hilton hotel at 2727... More

We were part of a big group, but the quality of the fish and seafood (and wine) was good and it was a lively venue too. Worth going to.

The fish was good, as you'd expect at a major restaurant in the middle of a fish market. The service was friendly but very pushy on getting one to order higher cost items and add-ons; annoying part of their business model. My family of five enjoyed the stop as part of a whirlwind one-day tour of Santiago. However, I'd recommend... More

Went to eat Centolla. As I was alone, and waiter advised me to ask for entry with centolla. I was disapointed. It came pulled, oiled, so greasy. Too much expensive. Not a good place to go

To begin with, I must say price is not good. I actually think this was one of the two most expensive places we ate in Santiago. But food was good. We ordered a fish with mashed potatoes and rice. Could not eat half of it. The portion was quite big for me. My husband also didn't finish his. We both... More

We paid about 11.000 pesos for five shrimps (yes, you read it right, 5 units) and about 9.000 pesos for a paella that tasted like they put too much water to cook the rice, both dishes not worthy, really. For the same price you eat a very decent meal in Lastarria (you can easily walk from Mercado Central to Lastarria... More

This is one of that places that is only for tourists and most of the times you regret to come. This is located in the Mercado Central and is suppose to be a nice place to have fresh and tasty seafood, but it is not. Maybe I'm too stric, but if you have been to places like Mercado La Boqueria... More
