The atmosphere, the service, and the food, was one of the best experiences in my travel to iquique. The menu was great, with lots of veggie options. I totally recommend this place. Be aware that the sign outside it's kind of small, so it's not that easy to find from outside.

After traveling in South America for 2 months I was dying for Thai food. Although their options on the menu for Thai are limited their curry was very good. Not quite as good as we get back home (Australia) but still very good and it was a nice change from the Chilean food. Price was 7000 peso for chicken curry... More

We enjoyed a superb meal here on a recent trip to Iquique. The staff were very attentive, friendly, and approachable. The surroundings were peaceful and colourful as well as having lovely plants and decor. The food was awesome from start to finish and they catered well to vegans. The Pisco Sours were also perfect!!

We arrived at the restaurant about 7:30 PM, early for Chile, and were the first dinner guests. We were pleased to see vegetarian options, since my friend is a pesquetarian. We had a quiet table near a small pond. Our server, Ezekiel, speaks good English and Spanish. We ordered a plate of 6 empanadas in 3 different vegetarian fillings. They... More

Comfy, quiet and mystic atmosphere, kind waiters/waitresses, and really tasty dishes. They also have Thai food, what's very good and totally recommend it. Very romantic at night. There's a little pagoda and garden inside. It may be expensive, but totally worth it!

The setting and atmosphere is beautiful and the waiter was very nice- but the food unfortunately wasn't at all on the same level. I had expected a good Asian restaurant and was looking forward to some good Pad Thai. However, the Pad Thai wasn't actually Pad Thai, but some overcooked noodles drenched in a bland coconut curry sauce (curry on... More

Hoped for a great seafood experience, in the end the food was bland and way too simple (as in you can make it at home without any food-related training or buy it in any cantine). The prices, however, do not reflect this simplicity. How this place came to be #1 on TripAdvisor evades me, although the waiter was nice.

I so wanted this to be a great culinary experience, but was rather disappointed. Not that the food was bad, it was just rather bland. The Pisco sour was also far from the best I've ever had. What was nice was the warm and cosy, relaxing candle-light atmosphere. Service was ok, but not very personal or warm. It wasn't exactly... More
