Our restaurant at Tierra Chiloé indulges in the rich produce of the local fishing community, which surrounds the hotel. As such, guests are treated to a plethora of seafood dishes, where mussels, sea urchins and other ocean treats fresh from the daily catch await. In addition to close ties with the local fishermen and farmers, our chef makes homemade breads and pastries, and the local specialty, the traditional “curanto”. This local festive communal meal involves slow-cooking meat and fish over hot stones in deep pits outside, layered with nalca leaves and left to cook for hours; a ritual that is often accompanied by a live accordion player.
Inside, the warmly-lit walls are part of a relaxed space with handmade wooden furniture, cosy corners, hand crafted lampshades and those ever-present views of the ocean. Often, our horses can be seen grazing on the grassy pastures surrounding the property.
When evening comes, our signature cocktail of Chilean pisco and local Ulmo honey (made from the flowers of a native tree found only in southern Patagonia) is the order of the day. Our welcoming restaurant staff are on hand to help find the perfect Chilean wine to accompany your meal, and the bar person can be relied on to suggest the perfect digestif for an after dinner drink next to the copper fireplace or on the outdoor terrace with its own hearth.
