"Luis" serves juicy steaks with tasty Chilean side-dishes: insalata chilena, salsa piquante, etc. The service is very friendly and the ambiente typical for a neighborhood restaurant (it is withing easy walking distance from the Gran Hotel Isabel Riquelme downtown). The wine list is limited, but presentable.
Fuente Alemana is a good value restaurant/cafe in the centre of town. We ate breakfast here one morning, and lunch on a different day, and on both days the food was fine, the service fast & efficient, and the prices were good. They offer many good value lunch deals such as the meals we had: Chinese chicken with rice for 2500 pesos, and milanesa with rice for 2100. You can also get real coffee here as well, something that can be difficult to find in rural Chile (instant coffee is the norm in many cafes and restaurants).
Bountiful buffets were part of our hotel package at Termas de Chillan. Each meal was preceded by a buffet of some type for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Our table was the same one each day with the same waiter, as well. Beverages were extra and not included with the price.
The procedure was to begin at the buffet located outside the door of the dining room, then the waiter took your entree order from the menu. Each meal was wonderfully prepared and delicious! A large assortment of salads and desserts awaited us on groaning tables filled with luscious offerings!
Hours for dining were 8 am-10:30 am for breakfast; 1:00 pm-3:00 pm for lunch; 8:00 pm-10:30 pm for dinner.
