Hi All-
I am travelling with my boyfriend & parents to S. America in the winter. We are taking a cruise from Valparaíso to Buenos Aires with some stops before, after and along the way.
We LOVE food, and I would like to take any chance possible to get local food before, after and while on the cruise. I speak Spanish- so options off the beaten path are great!
We will be landing in Santiago and be there for one night- so I am looking for one really great restaurant. Most important is food, and then atmosphere. This doesn't need to be fancy- just really great and local food!
From Santiago we will be travelling through the Casablanca Valley and stopping at a few wineries. I'm looking for somewhere delicious to stop for lunch. We were in La Rioja, Spain last year and had the best meal of our trip at a small little restaurant I found on chowhound- Hector Oribe- for anyone who is interested.
In Valparaíso we also have one night- we are willing to take a taxi and currently have a reservation at Hotel Ultramar in Valparisio and the Best Western in Vina Del Mar. We are not sure where we will stay yet. I have heard seafood is the best in Valparaíso- so any recommendations would be great!
From Valparaíso we take the cruise and I think we should have some time to grab lunch on our own in Puerto Montt, maybe Punta Arenas, Ushuaia and Montevideo. Again- looking for the best, authentic food.
In Buenos Aires we also have one night- I know there are a million amazing steak houses to choose from- but which one is the best?

Thank you all for your help on this- I know it is very long winded!!
