Jeronimo – Santiago

Jeronimo – Santiago

A well executed menu full of international comfort food that takes the diner on a world tour, from Asia to Italy, from Peru to Mexico. Jeronimo is the new in-vogue gastropub, attracting Santiago’s beautiful people. But exorbitant prices and sketchy service leave us wondering why.

Envy-Taco – Santiago

Envy-Taco – Santiago

Envy-Taco dishes out nothing but tacos from a converted trailer at the Merkado Bilbao. The menu may be limited, but the flavors shout “Mexico”.

Catrina – Santiago

Catrina – Santiago

Catrina brings the taste of Mexico to Vitacura, dishing out some great flavors. Execution of the short list of Mexican-cuisine classics is typically good, although short on heat. Service is inconsistent and lackluster, with lack of attention to details.

Matsuri – Santiago

Matsuri – Santiago

Matsuri offers a touristy rendition of Japanese cuisine that needs a bit more heart and soul. Not a bad restaurant. Better than most in Santiago. But still way short of being a great dining experience.

Tea Connection – Santiago

Tea Connection – Santiago

Tea Connection, despite sometimes sketchy service, garners high scores for ambience, food and creativity. Slightly pricey, but not unusually so for a restaurant in El Golf.
