Where to Eat in Los Vilos: The Best Restaurants and Bars

August 1, 2017 Enriqueta Cusson

Los Vilos (From mapuche: Filu, ‘snake’) is both a Chilean coastal commune and a coastal city with over 9,000 inhabitants (18,275 in comuna), located in the Province of Choapa, part of the IV Region of Coquimbo. The city has a harbour called Puerto Punta Chungo, that ships the material of Los Pelambres mine. Fishing is one of its main activities. The city also has a significant amount of tourism, mainly due to its two beaches: La Principal and Las Conchas. It is located at 246 kilometres (153 mi) from La Serena and 246 kilometres (153 mi) from Santiago.

El Paletita

Reviewed By Nicolás L - Santiago Metropolitan Region, Chile

Pésima atención. Comida muy básica. La carta no tiene ni la mitad de lo que dice. Para rematar hay que suplicar que entreguen factura, porque los muy descarados dicen que no tienen. Te entregan un papel y luego de varias insistencias y de pedir una guía de despacho, ahí sí te mandan la factura. Pésimo, no vale la pena detenerse allí.

L'incontro

Fabulous find smack in the middle of the road between Santiago and La Serna just 2 hours north of either point. Entrance available from both northbound and southbound directions of the Ruta 5. Amazing ocean views and even better food options for family style sharing like pizzas and pastas as well as a la carte selections of fresh regional fish and seafood as well as delicious prime steaks.

The restaurant at the top of the cliff has a fantastic view, and then you have the 'champagne bar' right next to the waves, a most amazing scenery.
This restaurants caters most for lunch, we had dinner there were few people; altough watching sunset at the champagne bar is absolutely worthy

El Calafate

Reviewed By M Alfredo G - Svendborg, Denmark

Don't expect any complex or strange dishes here, simple meat, fish or chicken with rice, fries or mashed potatoes, but all of a high quality. I got a "vieja" that was great, the kids got chicken and meat, both great tasting and fresh. Overall a very good deal, details taken care of, good quality olive oil, tables clean and so on. Also has a nice view of the sea. If I could mention anything that could be improved (for the owners), it would be that it was a bit cold and I was not tempted to take my jacket off, other than that a great experience and can, of course, recommend the place.

Smart premises, excellent food, friendly helpful service, good view of the bay. A bit more expensive than some other places in town, but worth it for the quality.

Restaurant El Bogarin

Reviewed By MKMapman - Milton Keynes, United Kingdom

El Bogarin sits on a corner near the sea front in Los Vilos - I was able to choose a table from which I could see a bit of the bay. The food is typically Chilean with some seafood: I ended up with deep fried conger with rice in a huge portion, which may not have been the best choice, and probably wasn't locally caught. Service was friendly, although no English is spoken.

Caleta Las Conchas

Reviewed By Antonio-Diaz-Araujo - Santiago, Chile

I would say it is an overpriced restaurant in a region of Chile that doesn’t have too many options. If you can, skip this town and try El Pequeño in Guanaqueros.

Un lugar que ofrece buena comida y es más de lo que parece, quizás por haberlo visitado fuera de temporada. Sin embargo la atención fue muy buena y la comida que probé muy sabrosa. precio razonable.

Restaurant La Roca

Reviewed By ANTONIO C

Durante Muchos años he visitado esta clásica "picada". Si bien antes de la remodelación era un clásico de tomo y lomo, hoy su servicio ha ido mejorando y se sigue transformando en un restaurant que dan ganas de pasar cuando se visita la zona o se va a la serena o viceversa.
Respecto de La atención de su gente no hay nada que criticar.
Los platos parmesanos mantienen calidad. Deben mejorar el pescado frito ya que su batido es muy grueso.
Potenciar su ubicación privilegiada y su entorno marino.
Cómo va subiendo , le ponemos dedo para arriba...para que sigan mejorando.
