Lonely Planet review

An elegant choice with veteran cummerbund-bound waiters who fawn over you like in the ‘40s, this tableclothed classic offers a long list of sophisticated meat and seafood dishes along with good-value lunch specials (S14.50) and pizzas. They have mouthwatering chupe de camarones, a seafood stew of jumbo shrimp simmering in a buttery broth with hints of garlic, cumin and oregano, and the desserts are excellent, from classic tiramisu to mile-high tres leches (a spongy cake made with evaporated milk).
