Chef: Francisco Mandiola Camus

Restaurant Europeo is located in the upscale Vitacura area of Santiago. Chef Francisco Mandiola Camus currently manages the restaurant. It was originally opened as the second restaurant of Chef Carlos Meyer – one of Chile’s most renowned chefs, before Francisco took over completely in 2011. Francisco transformed Europeo into a fine-dining restaurant where Chilean and European food is served with a contemporary twist.16499159452_45f11b5a76_z

The restaurant is located in a residential building on the Alonso de Cordova street, between several high-class boutiques and luxury hotels. The interior is classic and besides the main dining rooms, there also is a large, heated veranda, and guests can enjoy their lunch or dinner on one of the terraces in front or next to the building.Europeo - Santiago

Chef Francisco Mandiola Camus was trained in the United States, but spent most of his time in Santiago restaurants before he joined Europeo. Francisco also worked as the Executive Chef of the Oporto restaurant before. Today he serves European and Chilean food, prepared with new techniques and with respect for the main and seasonal products. Today his sous chef Sayil Guerra assists him.Europeo - Santiago

Local ingredients are prepared with European techniques and have influences of French and Italian cuisine. On the à la carte menu you will also find several home made pasta’s like stuffed tortellini with abalone, green fettuccini’s with mozzarella & prawns or home made pasta stuffed with morels. Europeo is committed in serving responsibly sourced seafood without compromising the future of our ocean, which is why for example they do not serve tuna anymore. Dishes vary between 11,5€ and 14€ for starters and are around 27€ for main courses. A 9-course tasting menu is also available with pairing drinks for 68€.

Perras y cedron dessert: pear and lemon with a verbena chocolate crumble, dulce de lecce cream and merengueEuropeo - Santiago

Chef and owner Francisco sticks to his local roots while he serves dishes with an interesting mixture between Chilean ingredients, European influences & techniques and world-wild touches. His restaurant Europeo has a classic look but serves a surprising cuisine. We found the drink pairings not always in line with the served ingredients and not perfectly matching. Although these little remarks, restaurant Europeo has the potential to become one of the better restaurants in Chile. With some fine-tuning, taste intensity and an attractive wine pairing we are sure Europeo will stay one of the culinary hotspots in Santiago.
