Housed in the Casa Higueras hotel overlooking the picturesque bay of Valparaiso, the majestic Restaurant Montealegre enjoys a reputation for its gourmet menu. Chef Oscar Tapia delights diners with grilled lamb chops stuffed with figs, Mediterranean risotto peppered with shellfish and saffron, and desserts like lucuma mousse and cream cheese and dulce de leche ice cream - all guaranteed to make you come back for a second visit. End with a coffee in the next door lounge overlooking the twinkling lights of Sotomayor Plaza and the bay and you'll understand why you're encouraged to make reservations in advance.
