Chile’s capital is like no other; the bustling metropolis is a vast mosaic of winding streets and tall buildings, surrounded by the towering white peaks of the Andes. The cuisine, equally as exciting, mixes international influences with native techniques and recipes, the freshest of ingredients with exotic fruits and fish, offering tantalizing combinations. All of which are best enjoyed with a glass of one of the many fine Chilean wines.
Recently remodelled by chef Francisco Mandiola, the place has had a little spruce up. The elegant space is now lighter and overlooks a small garden and has more space for diners. With 100 percent Chilean ingredients, the tempting menu includes picorocos (giant barnacles), cow’s tongue, seasonal mushrooms, as well as fresh meat and fish. The tasting menu has nine courses and can be complemented with a wine pairing.
