Gran Golpe Gastronomico .... very very bad

Gran Golpe Gastronomico is a restaurant in Vina on San Martin, a main drag a block off the water, and near the casino. It is in an upscale area and looks nice. They have seating outdoors and indoors. But beware. We were more and more frustrated after 3 times we ordered a dish and the waiter returned to say it was not available. Then I settled on crab. It arrived -- a tiny portion, dry, no seasoning. Somewhere during the eating of this, I bit into a large piece of shell and cracked the corners off of my two front teeth ... requiring an emergency trip to a dentist while on my happy Chilean vacation. Trip Advisor didn't have a way to post this in the restaurant area, but I had to add something. Stay away.

Thank you for the information and it is too bad about your bad experience. There are many good restaurants in Vina del Mar. It is a shame that you ended up in that one.
