Views of Santiago
The latest trend-setting place in Santiago is a terrace in the Bellavista neighbourhood with views of the Cerro San Cristóbal hill and the east zone of the capital. Whether its for lunch or an evening of drinks, santiaguinos (residents of Santiago) come here to enjoy the summer. Why not try their fruity cocktails such as the grapefruit mojito, the frozen mango or the apioska, a unique blend of vodka and celery. From the menu, we recommend the tuna tartar dressed with sesame.
Azotea Matilde. Open Tuesday to Sunday. 12:30PM to 1AM. Antonia Lopez de Bello 0118, piso 6.
