Where to eat in Puerto Natales?

Santolla Santolla is a trendy place with restaurant within 2 containers re-designed for this purpose. Better coming very early or late: the place is crowded and does not take reservation. But it has the best Centollas we have ever tasted, other plates are good too. Cooking is simple but very good. One of our favorite…

Where to eat in Arica?

Rayu Restaurant Arguably the best restaurant in Arica according the info we have collected on Internet, Rayu is a nice place with more than decent food and more than decent prices too (10 000 CLP + for a main course). Still worth a visit but nothing exceptional. El Litoral 2590, Arica, Región de Arica y…

Where to eat in Iquique?

Hotel Pekin We were there during the new year so the choice of restaurants were… reduced! We went for Restaurante Pekin for the diner. Was full and with tones of commandes waiting for locals to pick up. Quantity are big, quality is good and price very reasonable. Not far from being the best Chinese restaurant…

Patagonia Schokoland

Situated on the calm street of Carmencita, this Coffee and tea salon has not only sweet treat like chocolate, but also serve a delightful breakfast and lunch (or brunch for the WE). Patagonia is first a Chilean brand for artesian chocolate with a fabric in Valdivia. But the 3 daughters have decided to diversify and…

Boragó, another way to discover Chile

Finally we went. We have waited one and half year in Chile to know better the country before going. The place is nice, classy, the service is by far the best you can find in Chile, very professional, no waiting, really great. Outside you can see your Patagonia’s lamb gently grilling on a wood fire….

Santiago restaurants review since December 2016

It has been a long time since we have started this blog so we have had the opportunity to come back in many restaurants we have tried. It is to be said that the level of the cuisine is not necessary very stable. If you go to one of the established places in Vitacura such…

Karai, the ultimate Nikkei cuisine in Santiago

Only 3 weeks since the opening, but the restaurant is already fantastic. It may have to do with chief Mitsuharu Tsumura spending weeks in Santiago to work on this new restaurant. Indeed about half the menu is composed of Maido‘s original dishes (Maido has just been granted the title of best restaurant in Latin America by…

Where to eat in Santiago de Chile

From nowhere 10 years ago I visited Chile and had a very hard time when it came to meal time. We ended more often than not in the bar of the hotel or in the sushi shop in front of the office. There were many cheap but disappointing restaurants. Eating looked like a necessity; the…

Felix Brasserie, the world cuisine interpreted in Peruvian way.

Peru is my favorite destination for my food journey, every time I discover different things in different places, it’s so exciting! We eat well in Lima, and the spirit of chefs is wide open, of course partly influenced by the ethnic mix, but also due to the personal character I think. So we have been…

040 restaurant, the hidden beauty

On a Friday storm night, we passed trough the noisy street of Bellavista and discovered the very secret 040 restaurant hidden in a private hotel. The waiter introduced us to the underground restaurant salon with a particular design, dove and wine glasses on the ceiling, wooden chairs and table, and the the whole wall of…

Naoki, the Japanese food in his pure traditional way

My Chilean friend who is living in France recommended me this restaurant as soon as I arrived in Santiago and finally here we are! In Chile, the Japanese food is somehow confused with the Peruvian style Japanese cuisine, but for me it’s quite different. In Naoki, you will not find the maki with cream or cheese…
