Not entirely sure what happened here... Looking at the menu I had high expectations. In the region of 30 national bottles on offer: great! I thought. However, upon attempting to order from the rather intriguing selection I was informed by the waiter that only two from the list were available. Disappointed to say the least, though the one I "chose" was decent enough for what it was worth. The fridges were reasonably full of bottles but of the relatively predictable imported variety and I was hoping to sample a fair few Chilean crafts from the likes of Rothammer etc. The food was good, though Bellavista being a relatively touristic area the prices were on the higher side than I had become accustomed to after travelling here via Bolivia and Peru. If the national beer fridges has been fully stocked as represented in the menu I would have definitely revisited. Not sure if the fact that I went on a Sunday had anything to do with the short supply but either way the first experience put me off somewhat.

Good selection, though some of the most popular micros were sold out at 2:30am when I arrived. Ambiance is brilliant if you are looking for somewhere modern and trendy, but not so much if in the mood for a classic pub. I had a good time.

The best part of this place is the outer side, I mean itís located in a very animated restaurants and bars center full of nice people, plenty of foreigners which is rare in Santiago.
The place itself is good, with a classic mix of pub food with local micros and macros and also a good wine menu, mainly chilean wine.

Enjoyed this place so much we went twice. A good beer menu without being great. A selection of Chilean micros, but disappointingly none of the really good ones. A huge selection of foreign beers which the locals probably enjoy (though they have to pay for them). A really fun menu, ranging from half a metre long pizzas to sushi. Great sitting outside and watching the goings-on in the courtyard.

Pretty nice place to visit in a touristical area of Bellavista. I sat outside in the Patio in nice seatings and away from the noise inside. The service is friendly but the waiters donít know very much about beer which is not a surprise considering this is a restaurant.
The selection is solid with chilean micros you canít find anywhere else in Santiago (J. Bello and Calle-Calle). About 40 imports from Belgium, England, Austria (Samichalus), Germany, Scotland and the Netherlands (La Trappe). The prices arenít very expensive, except for a couple of european beers.
The food is nice, they have italian and japanese mostly which is a trend in Chile nowadays. I ate a 1/2 meter pizza with my friend and it was good.
So, I recommend this place at least to drink some chilean micros you wonít find in other place.
