They generously allowed us to eat although we arrived very close to their closing time. We arrived here after the TDP trek and we were up for a good steak. We can say that their tomato soup isn't very good, it doesn't have the taste of real tomatoes. Their steak and fries were great, just what we needed after a... More

This was the first restaurant we visited on our 10 day trip to Patagonia. We ate in the best places in Natales, Arenas, and El Calafate. Not only the food at this place was the best, it was also the least expensive. One plate of lamb will feed two hungry people and satisfy 3, so dont order too much. Their... More

My first centoya.. and I almost died of happiness! Excellent food and quick service. Portions are large (a little too large for the plates, but who cares?) and satisfying.

The BBQ entree was amazing - although I was solo and wishing I had about 3 other people to help me eat it! Delivered to the table in it's own charcoal brazier - I had leftovers for days. This is BBQ in the classic sense of the cooking technique - not the sauce. Showy "Smoking Room" in front window with... More

We were looking for a place to eat before starting our hiking at the Torres del Paine National Park! We walked for almost a hour looking for a restaurant ... Picata de Carlitos was packed and although with a visual that does not meet our standards we decided to give it a try! What a mistake... Chairs were nasty... Tables... More

We went there for dinner and had salmon and fries with a small bottle of wine. It was good food, not fancy. The service was good and very helpful.

The first time was before the 'w' and we eat cheaply, pasta all round. This was fine, simple but good. The staff were helpful and the prices are good for chile. The next time was after the trek and we fancied a nice meal. We had seen the parillada and thought it looked good so we ordered one for two,... More

My wife and I recently spend four days in Puerto Natales and Torres del Paine. We ate dinner each night at this restaurant. The prices were very reasonable and the food was delicious. We also experienced good quick service. The first evening I tried the "salmon completo" that turned out to be a huge sandwich with salmon, lettuce, tomato, cheese... More

We were recommended this restaurant on our way to Torres del Paine, and as we needed to stop in Puerto Natales for fuel, we decided to stop in for lunch. The place is big but nothing fancy. They offer a set lunch menu for 5.000 Chilean pesos, which on the day we went was a seafood stew for entree and... More

This restaurant can do way better in providing customer first service. There are many waiters but they usually hang around together. There is hardly any attention for the customers. Although this is not a top restaurant i think they can do way better in providing tasty meals.
