Iquique (Spanish pronunciation: [iˈkike]) is a port city and commune in northern Chile, capital of both the Iquique Province and Tarapacá Region. It lies on the Pacific coast, west of the Pampa del Tamarugal which is part of Atacama Desert. It had a population of 180,601 according to the 2012 census. It is also the main commune of the Greater Iquique. The city developed during the heyday of the saltpetre mining in Atacama Desert in the 19th century. Originally a Peruvian city with a large Chilean population, it was ceded to Chile as result of War of the Pacific (1879–1883). Today it is one of only two free ports of Chile.

this place looks very nice outside, it is very big but you don't feel that inside, there are separate rooms with only a few tables. We were served rather fast contrary to some comments we read here. There also was a lot of food but we are getting used to the big plates here ;-)

We heard about this restaurant by word of mouth, it is well hidden, not being locals we hired a taxi short trip from Hotel. I suggest a booking as we only got in because we went reasonably early. Waiter was very helpful describing different dishes etc, and making suggestions. Nice atmosphere and good bar area, where you can sit and relax after dinner.

Outstanding value. Went there for lunch menu and it was excellent. Soup and quality salad bar well prepared. Main dish was salmon and roasted potatoes and was probably better than high end restaurant that i have been before
Dessert was good too. Everything for less 14usd.
My colleague had a slow cooked meat Sandwich and the typical mango milk shake. They looked fantastic
Friendly and helping staff.

Very friendly place with great cuisine from The Altiplano,the high plateau shared by Chile, Bolivia and Peru, where the Aymara people have been from before the Inca Empire. Great food,good
drinks served in clay platters and always with a big smile.
Perfecto lugar para saborear comida Aymara siempre servida con una gran sonrisa

This restaurant has its activities in an old fancy building which is an attraction in itself. Spanish decorations (don Quichotte), mosaics, really a amazing building. The food was great. We took fish which was fresh and tasty. Price : 14.000 pesos/person wine included.

We enjoyed a superb meal here on a recent trip to Iquique. The staff were very attentive, friendly, and approachable. The surroundings were peaceful and colourful as well as having lovely plants and decor. The food was awesome from start to finish and they catered well to vegans. The Pisco Sours were also perfect!!

First class place, and service. I would say the Top restaurant in Iquique. Location, decoration, professional service, quality, scenery. Buffet or menu, the food is excellent. The drinks and wine list pairs with the overall quality and the employees are real and experimented professionals

La Mulata Restaurant, feature in its dishes the great flavors of peruvian cuisine, and NIKKEI style food (peruvian and japanese fusion)
A very high choice of Peruvian dishes, mostly classical. All different dishes we tried at the table were excellent. While waiting for the table (did not reserve in advance, the place was packed), the staff was very nice to us. The service was very professional and kind. I would go back to this place any time and I very much recommend it.

El Wagon is incredible, after friends and coworkers kept bugging me to try I went for an anniversary dinner. We arrived pretty late, around 11pm, and had great service. An entrada, two pisco sours per person, and two entrees and paid around 40.000CLP. Both entrees were delicious and I can't wait to go back! El Wagon has a wonderful environment and is a definite Iquique favorite.
