This restaurant is a micro brewery which is home to the very popular national beer - Kunstmann. The restaurant is mostly german style food. Many of the immigrants to this region of Chile have German ancestry. We came here on one occasion during a world cup match between Germany and Argentina. It was interesting because anywhere else in Chile they probably would have been gunning for their South American neighbours but in this part of Chile the crowd was definitely wanting Germany to win!
Favorite Dish: Kunstmann Torobayo is my favourite Kunstmann beer. It is a lager.
In terms of food there is a lot to choose from. Pork based dishes are really good.
Our hospedaje didn't serve breakfast so we ended up eating at the nearest cafe, Cafe la Ultima Frontera. From the outside it doesn't look like a cafe at all, but the ordinary facade conceals a lovely, old-style interior. Like many cafes in Chile, breakfast wasn't on the menu, but we managed to get some toast and butter for a very good price, along with real coffee, something of a rarity in Chile.
Any coffee lover who has travelled in Chile will have noticed the scarcity of real coffee, even in the better restaurants and cafes. There are many cafes in Valdivia but we found only two serving proper coffee. Cafe Palace in the centre is one of them, and has a good food menu too, a nice interior and friendly waitresses.
