This was recommended to us by a Chilean wine master as the best wine bar in Santiago and it did not disappoint. Great selection, fun flights, and the bruschetta we had was yummy too. Highly recommend.

We did not have high expectations at first. Already amazed by the beauty of the street, the night ended really well with the time with this restaurant. There were a lot of other choices in the area, so we kind of went with this one randomly. They have a wonderful wine menu, and there is an interesting section where you can taste three wines at a time. A very good way to get to know the Chilean wines. Had a bit of a hard time communicating with the waiter in English, but he was very friendly and helpful nevertheless. The food menu is absolutely interesting with refreshingly new ideas for dishes. We ordered a fish stew and a T-bone finally. The stew was absolutely amazing and it was so tempting to have another order of it. T-bone was way too overcooked and salty though. After a complaint they cooked another one for us again, but still the meat was a challenge to chew through. The pistachio creme brulee was just okay. But still, with its atmosphere and wine this is a great place to have dinner.

I've been living in Chile for 4 years, and this is the first wine bar I've found that actually lives up to its name. There's an excellent variety of wines, they're fairly-priced, and are representative of the innovation that's happening in the industry here. The food menu is also quite fun, and much more adventurous than a lot of other Chilean bistros. Fun atmosphere, great service. Make a reservation.

Great place for food and drinks (wine) with friends, in big tables and not loud music to talk. Little coffee tables and small beanches are unconfortables.

It was our last night in Santiago and we happened to pick this restaurant by chance.
The French owner came to our table and in excellent English explained his concept
for the restaurant. The menu is unique in that it groups all dishes in categories such as
spicy, creamy, sweet and sour, etc. All waiters have a very good knowledge of the many wines.
There are wine flights, glasses of wines, or bottles. I had the lamb and it was excellent. The owner paired a glass of wine with our dinner choices. He did not pick anyway near the most expensive.
The owner came to our table several times throughout our dinner experience. He also said goodbye and shook the hands of the other customers as they left. My only regret is that I didn't find this place sooner. It is neighborhood Lastarria.
