La Serena, located halfway up Chile’s coastline, is a popular tourist destination for both Chileans and foreigners. Its main attraction is its beaches, so it can get busy during the summer months, but it is also full of neo-colonial architecture to explore at any time of the year. We look at 10 of the city’s best restaurants, from fresh seafood to classic burgers.
Cardamomo is located right on the beachfront, and so unsurprisingly serves delicious fresh seafood dishes. There are plenty of tables on a deck that is right on the sand for great views of the ocean, or there are tables inside, but still right on the beach when the doors have been opened up. The interior design is simple but clean and modern, and the menu includes a selection of local beers as well as a huge range of dishes, from falafel to sushi to pizza. The location and beach atmosphere make this a great spot for a slow and relaxing meal.
