The Best Restaurants in Santiago de Chile

The StarTripper Journal presents the best places to dine in Santiago, both International gourmet and good South American choices.
Our team to Santiago are two business women traveling a lot in South America.

Santiago de Chile, a metropolis with a view. Cosmopolitan, surprising energetic, sophisticated and worldly, Santiago is a city of exiting cultural currents, madhouse parties, expansive museums and top restaurants.

Founded in 1541 by the Spanish conquistador Pedro de Valdivia, Santiago has been the capital city of Chile since colonial times. The city has a downtown core of 19th-century neoclassical architecture and winding side-streets, dotted by art deco, neo-gothic, and other styles. Santiago's cityscape is shaped by several stand-alone hills and the fast-flowing Mapocho River.

The climate is Mediterranean, with mild winters and very warm and dry summers. It's a wonderful city for strolling, each neighborhood has its unique flavor and tone. Head out for the day to take in the museums, grand architecture and pedestrian malls of the Centro, before nightlife takes off in the sidewalk eateries, cafes and beer halls of Barrios Brasil, Lastarria and Bellavista, or head east to Providencia and Las Condes and find world-class restaurants and hotels.

Currency is Chilean peso (CLP$).
