Cecilia Jadue - the owner- runs the kitchen and servers her clients, at this old mansion situated in Bellavista. Her brother, the painter Oscar Jadue, was in charge of the decoration. Bits of paintings related to food by sixteen of the great masters were reproduced to form part of a mural 12 metres long that covers one of the walls.

At lunchtime it is a favourite among passers-by busy Bellavista. At night the buzz stops, allowing for a more intimate and relaxed environment. This restaurant offers Arab cooking with Mediterranean influence: antipasto mediterráneo (CLP4,500) includes bab ghanoush (a light aubergine and sesame paste), manitaria afelia (mushrooms in red wine with coriander seeds) and kubbe (pickled aubergines and fried aubergines and tomatoes). If your night out is planned ahead, you can order a Royal couscous with 24 hours notice (CLP5,500), for 4 persons minimum. For afters there is Crepe Gauguin (CLP2,000), with caramelised oranges and chocolate. If you accompany it with Turkish coffee, even better!
