Club Social Chañaral

Top choice chilean in Parque Nacional Pan de Azúcar

A surprising find in the small town of Chañaral, this exceptional restaurant serves excellent fish (try the pejegallo with capers and beurre blanc) as well as grilled sirloin steaks and budget-friendly lunch specials (around CH$5000). Giancarlo, the friendly English-speaking owner, can fill you in on the local gossip around town.

It's next to the Plaza de Armas, a few blocks uphill from the coast.
