Review Summary
Aqúi Está Coco is seafood with a Chilean (and a bit of Peruvian) flair in a beautifully decorated space. It's unique personality makes it a destination every diner must visit in Santiago at least once.

The full review for Aquí Está Coco

Review by: Ollie O Rating: 4.5 stars Review Date: 04/15/2015

If there is one restaurateur in all of Santiago that presents seafood with a Chilean (albeit heavily Peruvian) flair, it’s the notorious “Coco” Pacheco. For more than three decades Chef Coco has been adding his personal touch to a wide variety of seafood dishes. The relatively new restaurant location on La Concepcion in Providencia adds a sophisticated ambiance to the culinary offerings, and is much nicer than the digs at the previous location which was destroyed by fire.

Whether you’re seated in the large main dining room or one of the seven smaller dining areas, each decorated with a unique theme, the ambiance will be just as impressive as the food that will follow.

On my last visit I sat at the ceviche bar and had an assortment of ceviche, each distinct in its preparation and each delicious in its own right. My companion and I moved to a table in the main dining room. I elected to try the paella style Coco Rice for the main course. An assortment of shell fish was served up on a bed of spicy rice brimming with the flavor of the sea. Probably not as good as they do it Spain, but certainly as good as you’ll find in Santiago.

The experience at Aquí Está Coco may not rank with your top five dining experiences of all time, but nevertheless, the total experience of a visit to Aquí Está Coco will continue to keep it perched in that list of top five dining spots every traveler and native alike, should experience in Santiago.

Take note that like many businesses in Santiago, Aquí Está Coco closes for several weeks during December or January. Reservations are recommended.
