El Bosque Horcón

Chilean in Elqui Valley

An enchanted setting for a meal, El Bosque ('the forest') lives up to its name with outdoor tables surrounded by greenery beside a gurgling river — indeed you'll have to cross a footbridge over the Rio Claro to get there. The chalkboard menu features pizzas, lamb in red-wine sauce and quiche of the day, plus recommended sides like quinoa salad.

It's about 10km south of Pisco Elqui, on the same road asPueblo Artesanal de Horcón (which lies just 1km south of the restaurant).
