The steaks were fine and cooked to our liking and the service was so so. The wine was ok and the atmosphere was fine. In summary, ok if you want beef on route 5 but you'll soon forget it.

The food is very good, the menu offers mostly sandwiches. The organization of the restaurant is good. It has a nice atmosphere. The place is necessary when you are on the road.

Well, the waiting staff is rude, as others pointed out. My opinion is that management is failing them, because it would not take that much to make significant improvement. Now, I did not think it was as bad as others pointed out. While I agree that the food is very expensive, the three of us were satisfied with our choices.... More

On our way back to Santiago we stopped for lunch. Waiter was not very kind and we had to wait more than 40 minutes for a simple sandwich

I've eating here for over 15 years, and the last time was the last straw, horrible service, expensive and salmonella. there is COPEC gas station a few hundred yards from here, you'll be safer eating there.

Good, correctly prepared food, standard chilean menu, good service, clean, but I feel that the price is rather steep. You pay about 50 % for their name.

Stopped for lunch on a saturday with the family. Good food, well priced and good service and restrooms. A little slow for a roadside restaurant.

This is my third trip to Los Ganaderos...I keep going back becuause there are not too many good options along this part of Ruta 5. This trip was the most disappointing because of the quality of the food vs the price. As you can see in the attached photos, for $12.400 (about $23 US) I received a mediocre sandwich and... More

If you are driving north or towards south this is one place where you can stop for enjoying fine dining. It has become bit expensive but once in a while it is worth stopping. What is interesting about this restaurant is its setting amidst natural environment. They do have a branch in Santiago.
