A small and modern gem of a restaurant a comfortable walk from Neruda's house in Valparaiso. The food was truly delicious, lovingly prepared with fresh local ingredients. Our favourites were the amazingly tasty tongue starter and the exquisite oxtail ravioli. Great wines from the region. The staff were super-friendly and professional and we were greeted warmly by the owner who... More

Love this charming restaurant hidden in the residential area where you have to climb up the hill to get to. Great menu, great food and great service! The owner came to chat with everyone to make sure everyone was happy there! Highly recommend!

We were late for lunch -- the kitchen was already closed -- and still they accommodated us thanks to the owner Laura's attention. We loved the food! Most dishes it seems have rock fish in them. The two dishes we had, with rock fish, were exceptional, very different and very tasty. The desert with kumquats was amazing. The service excellent.... More

They have waiters that speak english and french and one of them gave us all the detailed explanation of each dish the offer. They have an exclusive Rock Fish that is the real catch of the day that they prepare with fresh ingredients rendering a great experience of flavour that really makes a difference.

We were staying in the area and chanced upon this restaurant in the afternoon. They had just received some fresh fish which whetted our appetites. We made a reservation for the evening and had an excellent time. We had the fish prepared two different ways, some very good wine and dessert. The decor is modern but comfortable. In warmer weather... More

My wife and I were recommended Espiritu Santo by a Chilean sommelier when we told him we were visiting Valparaiso. Really high quality food and and great wine list with a lot of local wines that the owner said she gets to know the winemakers first before she will put them on the menu. Would highly recommend if you enjoy... More

This restaurant was tremendous. The ceviche and Abalon appetizers were the best I have ever eaten. Duck was prepared flawlessly.

They also have rooms. But we've been for dinner. Certainly one of the best dinning rooms on the Valparaíso hills. Lovely seafood; very nicvely cooked. Good cocktails and desserts. Highly recommended. You need a map (waze or google maps) in order to get there, if you're driving yourselves.
