Reviews on International food in Punta Arenas, Chile. Overlooking the Strait of Magellan, this isolated city in southern Patagonia bustles with windswept trekkers en route to glacier-filled Torres del Paine National Park or an Antarctic cruise. Before transiting, take note of the mansion-lined main square, Plaza Muñoz Gamero; the City Cemetery, with its elaborate tombs; and the Sara Braun Palace and Braun Menendez Residence, a preserved slice of the city's wealthy pioneer past. Daily flights connect the city with Santiago and Ushuaia.

Having arrived in Punta Arenas on a Sunday evening when everything looked closed, we chose to eat here for convenience and because this restaurant is attached to an international hotel chain, we expected a decent meal. Located on the top floor of the hotel, the views over the city are unfortunately about all there is to commend it. We were the only diners mid-evening, so the place lacked atmosphere and the young waitress had no finesse whatsoever while waiting on our table. She served us one inch cubes of rubbery cheese and spam on cocktail sticks with our beers which were inedible; something I would certainly not expect to see served in a hotel restaurant! We both ordered steaks, cooked rare. After what seemed like an eternity, one came as ordered, the other was very overdone and the chips were dry and tasteless. The meat had clearly been defrosted and the chips were of the oven bake variety. I could cook better food at home! When including drinks, the meal was by no means cheap and we were deeply disgruntled with both the food and the service. For a restaurant operating inside an internationally renowned chain, the service we experienced was cringingly gauche and fell far short of the standards one would expect from a Best Western hotel.

Visit forced for any tourist who settles on austral lands, as it did it Francis Drake does more than 400 years behind the one who looking for the unknown thing came to port. In honor to him and his descent there got up one of the most prestigious English
We went for a quick visit---to see the water color paintings of the Shackleton expedition and rescue along the walls. Not a very cozy pub, though.

The prelude to an unforgettable experience. Shackleton Bar & Coffee of the Jose Nogueira Hotel, a place for people who appreciate a varied list of drinks and snacks in a centenary salon. In August 1914, Sir Ernest Shackleton set out on board of the Endura
Nice interiors - leather chairs, fine woodwork and paintings related to Shackletonâs journey and visit to hotel. Got there at 6 pm hoping the place would be empty. So it was. There was no one in the Bar. However, various events (meetings and celebrations) were happening in the adjoining rooms. The barman was busy pouring wine and champagne in scores of glasses and waiters were rushing around and had no time to even look at me. After waiting for 15 minutes, I left. Sharing some of the paintings on the walls.

Currently it works daily as an extension of our Shackleton Bar and its menu, and we have a daily menu of three-course at lunch and dinner, for another service must be requested with 24 hrs in advance, we can book a prearranged menu. At the Braun mansion,
A smallish room but clean and perfectly adequate. Helpful reception. Reasonable breakfast (though not too exciting) and was taken aback to see waitress filling up fresh fruit bowl with pineapple while pushing back the other cut fruit with her bare hands. Also found a fly in my raspberry juice (which I hadnât drunk!). Central location and most âsightsâ seemed to be within walking distance. Sara Braun palace was part of the hotel building and could be visited through the hotel.

The food quality was excellent. The price was a little high for area. The service was exceptional. We were offered a video presentation about the area. Menu was available in Spanish and English. There is an indoor play area for small children. We enjoyed the music videos and they were not too loud to talk to your group.

We serve the grandma's food with an actual touch, all regional products for eating and drinking. King crab recipes, lamb, homemade pasta, ceviches and much more! The Patagonian atmosphere envolves you as if you were in a "Estancia", our decoration reminds
This was probably our favorite restaurant during our three week trip in Chile. The view is magnificent - you gaze across the Strait of Magellan to Tierra del Fuego. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The drinks are very original and delicious, and the food is excellent. We loved the decor as well, with many furnishings and decorations from farm implements and tools. My wife had the lamb shank and I had a wonderful steak. Be sure to give this place a try!Mr. BillThank you so much for your kind words, we truly appreciate all the things you said.We feel very happy to know that you can noticed and enjoyed all the details in our restaurant and in the hotel.Kindest regards!

Independent coffee shop, located few blocks from the main square, we're the early birds in town (Mon to Fri 7 - 19.30 / Sat 9 - 16 / Sun 10 - 16). Casual vibe, specialty coffee, home made pastry, daily lunch specials and brunch menu for the weekends. Come
food was very good, they have free wifi, staff was welcoming and kind and spoke enough english to communicate and helped me practice mine:) prices are not too bad and the place was clean and had a good vibe. stayed for a while to kill time before a flight and it was quite pleasant.
