I was on business trip to Calama, city where you arrive when you go to San Pedro de Atacama. I was looking for a place to dinner and I was told by a colegue this was a realy nice place to eat with a bar on the second floor. I went and ordered chicken stuffed with goat cheese and herbs with sided steamed vegetables and a pisco sour (chilean very common drink), my colegues ordered a Steak and a ceviche. I was sorprised with the presentation of the food and the teaste was amazing the pisco sour although wasn´t good at all. Service need to be more friendly however I find out that in Calama this is very regular. I will go for either dinner or luch again whatsoever. It is very rustic so if you want nice cushioned seat or fancy arrangements this is not your place.

Scout looks like a simple grill fastfood, but food is really delicious. I've eaten there the most perfect grilled salmon of my life. The meatdishes are very copious and grilled like you asked. The service is good and friendly. Most local people who come for a quick meal, but you can spend a good time with a low budget.

Madam Deysit

Reviewed By cailydo

We had two fantastic fish dishes and craft beer whilst waiting for a bus. The waiter was very sweet and everything was top notch. They even included a piece of sushi for an appetizer. It's a great stop for a slightly pricey but wonderful meal on your way out of Calama.

Tradiciones Peruanas 2

Reviewed By stephrab

Lets start with the basic. Amazing food that includes wonderful ceviche of all kinds, fried fish, grilled fish, chicken and even fried rice with seafood. Salads are available. This is a very local restaurant that caters to locals so it needs to keep the quality if its food high. This also means that the staff does not speak English. Bring your Google Translate and you should have no problem. Staff went out of their way to communicate and help erase any language barrier and to also let us know we were valued guest.

My husband and I frequented this restaurant often while living in Calama. The chicken and Rustico sandwich were excellent and portion size was huge. One plate could easily feed two people and the prices are very reasonable. The atmosphere is casual and friendly. Definitely a restaurant I recommend.
