Very nice place with view over the Guanaqueros Bay. Empanadas were very good as well as fried fresh fish. Service was accurate and fast.

We have come from Sydney and after visiting different restaurants in the area we have decided that the food and the service is the best of them all at El Pequeño. Delicious Chilean dishes and although it was New Year's Day and it was fully packed, the service was excellent. Highly recommended.

I have visit d Guanaqueros many times and I always visit this amazing restaurant- all the fish is fabulous but most of all the empanadas- my favourite is the empanadas de mariscos (mixed shellfish).... and the service is great, well they are like family 😁
