Santiago and the vineyards: Culinary tour of Santiago

Visit Us

Culinary tour of Santiago
This novel tour offers an ‘interactive kitchen’ experience as you visit a bustling fish market to pick up a few finishing touches for a delicious lunch your chef will prepare before your eyes.

Santiago's Central Market is both a cultural and historic landmark, and since 1872 it has been serving up an enticing assortment of fresh food alongside a slice of local life. Under the shelter of its vaulted cast iron roof, animated scenes of commerce, eating and socialising give a great sense of Santiago's vibrant culture.

While you’ll see fruit and vegetables for sale, the market’s raison d’être is clear: seafood delivered straight from fishermen’s boats dominates the stalls. There’s also a host of small stands, often crowded with local custom, where you can choose your fish and have it cooked up for you in moments.

However you'll be treated to a smarter setting for lunch when you continue on to El Galeón restaurant, right next to the market. Injecting some showmanship into the dining experience, the chef will prepare a typical Chilean meal beside your table as you whet your appetite with a Pisco Sour cocktail.
