Unique interior decoration, a fantastic location right on the beach, good service and really good food. You pay just slightly more here than you would at a more average place in Chile but the quality of the food and everything else is much higher.

If you want a treat, try "maches" at this restaurant. This is s shellfish unique to local waters as far as I can tell, but what they do with it in Chile is probably some combination of garlic, lemon juice and cheese. The sea bass and other dishes were pleasant, but the maches will be forever lodged in my memory!

A simple dinner with a couple of friends ended in a disappointment, all due to the quality of the food and service at Tololo Beach, on March 24th, 2017. I ordered a fish plate, mero a la parrilla, the waiter says there are no garnish, no salad with it, and I should order some. I ask for a simple salad,... More

I will start with the good points first : Good location, fancy atmosphere, parking available, acceptable prices and good cocktails. Most of the staff seemed nice and attentive, except of our waiter. Unfortunately this was the key mood killer. The restaurant was almost empty and yet for some reason we were seated on a table that we later realized was... More

The food wasn't great for the price they charge you. They didn't have all the fishes only tuna and reineta, everything is overpriced. We won't visit this restaurant again.

We went for an evening dinner, in a family group of ten adults. I have been there a few times and I have consistently enjoyed the food. The group rated the food as very good to excellent. They had a menu with prices varying from moderate to expensive (for both food and wine). The food was all well presented and... More

The location was excellent but the food was very overpriced. Compared to some of the best seafood restaurants in Santiago, this place is easily 30% more expensive and of lower quality. There equally good restaurants in town for a lot less.

Tololo Beach is one of my favorite restaurants in the area. My wife and I went there to celebrate a big moment in our lives and we did not regret it. The service is amiable and the food is just cooked to perfection. I had one of the best steaks of my life there, done a lo pobre, in the... More
