We were headed for another restaurant for roasted goat on a spit and were steered here by several locals. One ordered the goat and one of us congrio frito. Both dishes were a disappointment. The goat (chivo) had incredibly more fat and bone on the...More

We stumbled upon the modest Carlitos while walking Puerto Natales. It is a few streets away from the plaza and not as touristy. It seems patronized by locals which is always a good sign. We were here a little early for lunch but were seated...More
