If you don't mind eating in a fire hazard, this is an excellent choice for seafood. Nothing fancy, just fresh ingredients, well prepared and reasonably priced. The closest you will get to a seaside restaurant in Santiago

We decided to give this place a try after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor. We almost walked right pass it. It does not look like a restaurant at all on the street level. It looks like a small seafood shop. The restaurant is hidden in the basement. The basement itself is a small cramped space with 4 small tables. We were very skeptical but were too embarrassed to a walk out.
Good thing we stayed.

We had raw oysters and a Conger soup based on the owners recommendation. The oysters were very fresh. The soup was super flavorful. We will definitely go back to try other items on the menu.

Two thumbs up.

We found the restaurant in Trip Advisor and we decided to try it. The food was delicious. We ate "navajas a la parmegiana" and after I ate centolla crab meat and my boyfriend, a tuna steak. I really really recommend it ! Do not judge it by its looks. It is the best meal I had in Chile!

Best seafood I had in Santiago.
Restaurant is in the basement of a seafood shop, not very comfortable, but great atmosphere, friendly service and divine seafood.

This might be the best fish restaurant I've been to in South America. Hard to find, hidden in the cellar of a regular fish store, super friendly people and the best fish dishes you can imagine. A "MUST GO"!
