Upscale or formal restaurants in Santiago Chile

 

Our upscale casual dining category includes restaurants that put a bit more emphasis on ambiance and service. Expensive table linens and tableware are the norm. A few even bring out the white tablecloths. You can expect a gourmet dining experience. Although coat and tie aren’t required in any of these restaurants, a slightly higher standard of dress is appropriate. These are the restaurants that are suitable for that special occasion. In this list, we’ve included the ten best restaurants in this category.
