This restaurant is in the hotel Deams. The food was decent not fabulous as I've reviewed in other areas we've stayed. But the hostess was the nastiest person. Perhaps because we did not speak English. But in a tourist area and a tourist hotel I would have expected someone to either be more pleasant or speak English.

Staing almost two weeks in Valdivia, in the last night we arrived also here! Sure that it was night and a lot of pisco... But anyhow the local ot is very nice combined with interesting, at least a kind of owl nest excepting the people from inside!
A very pleasant local for the last night in Valdivia!

Although I love many of the Kunstman's beers (and flavors), I hoped for a better service.
Also they didn't have guided tour at the days of my stay.
Parking lot also was almost full and in general, very crowded place.
You can purchase many souvenirs such as magnets, T-shirts, glasses etc.
Try on going at about 12:00pm otherwise you won't have the beat experience.

We went for dinner with a small group and really, really enjoyed it. Our waiter was knowledgeable and attentive. We had some appetizers (sea food) with pisco sour (delicious) but the entrees that we ordered were spectacular, specially the seafood risotto, the best that I have ever tried. Highly recommend it!

If you're looking for quality food, great service, and a cozy environment, this is the place to go! Located in Valdivia's most "happening" spot, Picamadero completely surpassed my expectations!

We went to Valdivia for a day trip. We had lunch at Thor, very cozy place, its not big although when its crowded they use the second level. We were a big party and got there with no Reservations. Got seated pretty fast. They offer different type of steaks... La entraña is very nice and good to share. We asked for 2 to share for 4 kids and 1 would have been enough. For adults 1 portion of entraña for 2 people works. Its big. My rib eye came a bit over cooked, they changed it right away and brought me a new one. It was very good. The staff is very friendly and service is good! I would go back!

The place is cozy, especially sitting next to the fireplace. We enjoyed having original drinks such as "selva valdiviana" sour prepared with pisco and a mixture of murta berries and quince. This is a unique flavour that is typical from the South of Chile. In any case there is a large list of sours you can select from. The food is also quite good. As starters you can have fried "empanadas" filled with "locos" a kind of avalone that is very apreciated. The crab-pie (chupe de jaiba) is also very tasty. In general seafood and fish dishes are the specialties of this restaurant.
