The food was lovely, but the service was excellent. Patricio Villagran and was exceptionally nice, and gave us excellent service. My husband was also delighted with the Persian service a young Walter gave him when making his tea at breakfast. We didn't get his name,...but he was delightful and very interested to know how we drink our tea in the UK.More

Nice ambient and music, good food and great service, especially by Patricio and his team. I was a guest at the Plaza Dan Francisco Hotel and went to the restaurant several times- always a pleasure

Relaxing, gourmet dinner paired with a nice Chilean pinot noir. Our waiter, Cesar, was very personable and offered excellent advice on the starters and main courses we chose. Also a very nice Chilean pinot noir, light, and served cold, which paired very well with our...food. After malbecs and carmeneres throughout our travels in Chile and Argentina we were ready for a different wine too.More

Restaurant bristol was amazing. The food and staff were so great, they made sure we were taken care of and that our food came out quickly as we had a young child with us. Cesar Duran particularly looked after us and from our first night...at the restaurant came over and introduced himself and made friends with our little boy and each night or morning He was working made sure we were taken care of. Excellent service and food!More

From the most fantastic breakfast offerings I've seen in a long time, with excellent service and hospitality throughout the day, the dinner menu offerings turn surprisingly limited (but well prepared and with geed flavor), and the room service menus so severely limited as to be...disappointing. The breakfast buffet is definitely a 5 star, the more limited evaluation reflects the other offerings.More

We were staying in the hotel which houses the Restaurant Bristol in mid-town Santiago and had a birthday celebration dinner for my wife. We chose the restaurant as we were a little nervous about venturing out after dark in an area that still has residual...unrest. Much better to stay in the complete safety of the Plaza San Francisco hotel. We had booked a little early for 7:45 do the restaurant was a little empty at first but slowly filled. Wait staff were in abundence, including at least one in training and service was very good. The choice of dishes was good and inclined towards Chilian specialties, which were well-explained by the wait staff. Food was well presented without froths and foams and cooked to our specifications. At the end of the meal the staff brought out a surprise small birthday cake and sang in Spanish, Happy Birthday. Cannot fault service or food, so I can recommend without hesitation. I might also add that the final cost was not too expensive, either...More

this old style bar, full of wood and glass, with heavy chairs adn high bar stools is inside the Hotel Plaza San Francisco. After a long day of being a tourist in Santiago it was so nice to come to this bar and have a...very attentive server or bar tender look after us. Good beer selection, naturally lots of wines to choose from and, of course, pisco sours. A very pleasant lobby bar.More

this resturant is inside the Hotel Plaza San Francisco and is used for the buffet breakfast for guests. The breakfast selection was wonderful and the made to order eggs were outstanding. Coming from a North American winter the platters of fresh fruit were very welcomed....We ate one supper in the hotel (our first night) and it was excellent. Great service, the head waiter picked out our wine for us (perfect), the two fish dishes that we had (South American white fish) were done in remarkably tangy and fresh sauces and were cooked to glistening perfection and served hot. Hotel guests got 10% off the bill too.More

The restaurant is inside the Hotel Plaza San Francisco. The ambiance is formal and a little bit pretentious . The food was good although not too many choices. Service was attentive. We came in around 9 pm, as it’s customary here in Chile for dinner....Only a few tables were occupied, Shortly after we ordered the food the waiters started cleaning up the unoccupied tables which made us feel rushed. The surprise came at the end when they presented the bill with an additional tax not charged at any other restaurants we went during our 3 week stay in Chile. They explained to us that since we don’t stay in the hotel the law requires to charge that tax which is about 20%. Only foreign hotel residents are waived the hotel and restaurant tax since it goes on the hotel bill. Since there are so many other good choices in Santiago, if you don’t stay in the hotel, choose another restaurant.More

Dined here while staying in the hotel. The restaurant is traditionally decorated with white tablecloths and napkins and a relaxing ambience.The menu isn’t huge but big enough to give a good choice. Our waiter was helpful and friendly. The food was delicious and well presented....While not the cheapest in town, it was well worth the money for the quality of the food and wine we had. Would definitely recommend.More
