Chile travel

International Cuisine

The thousands of restaurants, cafés and bars that have appeared throughout Chile, aim to serve flavors from different parts of the world and promise to throw a party for your senses. The traditions of immigrants that came in centuries past and chefs that travel the world looking for new culinary experiences breathe life into a diverse gastronomic fare, which is rich in colors and textures.

In Santiago, the options are endless and the intercultural mix can be felt in places that mix local food and international dishes. Visit the Bellavista, Lastarria and Italia districts to be surprised by the variety of food and preparations. If you have a bigger budget, treat yourself to one of the sophisticated restaurants of Nueva Costanera and Alonso de Córdoba.

Enjoy sweet and savory dishes or a delicious sweet and sour concoction throughout the country. Colorful walls that are home to fine restaurants, cafés, chocolate and pastry shops, welcome you to the English District in La Serena.

In Valparaiso you can look down at the port city from one of the hundreds of restaurants that offer simple or sophisticated culinary experiences. If you love wine, then pairing it will be a highlight when deciding what to eat. Listen to the advice from the experts!

Try the unique combination of Italian, Chilean and Mapuche flavors in Capitan Pastene, in the south, or be amazed by the German influence while trying delicious crafted beer and pasteries in cities like Valdivia, Osorno, Puerto Varas and Frutillar.
