Restaurante 040

Restaurante 040 is one of the best restaurants in the world thanks to the masterful direction of Spanish chef Sergio Barroso. The dishes are partly based on molecular cuisine and inspired by different cuisines from around the world. At the same time, their Chilean roots are clearly visible. Eating at Restaurante 040 is about having a unique experience, with dishes you will not find anywhere else in the world. The dress code is strictly formal and there are only a few seats in the restaurant, allowing for an exclusive dining experience. You will be served a surprise tasting menu that can not be modified or customized. It is not allowed to take pictures of the food as you are encouraged to start eating as soon as it is served: this will ensure the best taste experience.


The cuisine of Chile is characterized by both the preparation methods of the Chilean Indigenous Mapuche culture as well as by the aromatic flavours of the fresh ingredients from land and sea. Stews (cazuelas), wood-fire bread (tortillas de rescoldo) and clams, often baked with parmesan cheese (machas a la parmesana), are just some of the regional specialities, along with classic empanadas, grain or corn-based dishes and tropical fruits. Santiago's cuisine stands out due to its diversity and the mix of modern and traditional dining options. A glass of wine from one of the nearby vineyards will perfectly complement your meal. Wherever you go in Santiago, you will have the opportunity to taste the country's specialities at restaurants and small eateries. Street vendors offer their delicacies at small stalls, their food is generally safe to eat and always delicious.
