Great little bistro with good food, good ambience in a very cool area of Valparaiso. The owner is French from Montpellier, in the south of France. Lots of options, great desserts!

Eat in or step up to the take out window. The food is fresh and delicious, the service was excellent and the prices very reasonable. Would definitely eat here again.

My mother is from Valparaiso and nany times told me about this place so this time we had the opportunity to go after walking down this area. The food was very good but my expectations were higher and the experience was not what I've thought they would be. Why? There are lots of what seems to be good restaurants around,... More

I still love this place, but I have the feeling that they don't care that much anymore and it is sad because this is one of my favorite spots in Valpo. Hopefully, last time I was there was just a bad day for them.

I ate here on my first visit to Valparaiso. Four trips later it stands out in my mind as my first or second favorite restaurant in town. Montpelier is a Valparaiso institution by virtue purely of its food. It doesn't have the trendy modern vibe of Vinilo or the stunning views of Fauna. It has to rely purely on the... More

Tried on a Sunday evening. Very friendly and helpful waiter, nice waitress too. He had no difficulties (in fact he encouraged us) when we asked to share a single set dinner menu (great deal at about 10,000 pesos) and we asked to get a bigger table. Ceviche OK, excellent grilled reineta and ratatouille, decent chocolate parfait. Would go back, except... More

We passed in front of this restaurant several times before and always postponed until last Sunday. I have to say that we did wrong. We definitely shouldn't postponed. Small and charming restaurant in the top of Cerro Concepción in Valparaíso. The staff very kind always with a true smile in their face and ready to support on any request. The... More

I was looking for lunch and this was the ONLY restaurant in the immediate area that was packed. Everything else was completely empty. I know how to take a hint, so I chose to eat here! The waitress and the other 4 waiters was extremely friendly and welcoming. I ordered off of the 3 course lunch menu. Had cebolla soup... More

I visit Valpo every 2 or 3 months and always make sure to have lunch at this restaurant. I saw in some of the other reviews that people weren't very happy with the service but in Chile that is something that you need to just prepare yourself for before you even come to the country. Chileans are not warm, welcoming... More
