Dalí, Coyhaique

Address: 82 Laurato

Tel: 56-67-245-422

The jumping-off point for most adventure trips to Patagonia, Coyhaique has suffered from a chronic lack of stylish kitchens. Dalí, an intimate 16-seat restaurant on the ground floor of chef Cristián Balboa's house (look for the mural inspired by the Surrealist painter outside), neatly fills that gap. Amid a scattering of bric-a-brac—a drinks cabinet nesting in a battered suitcase, a collection of sixties blenders—you'll find well-crafted dishes squarely rooted in regional cuisine. There are juicy racks of Patagonian lamb, and Pacific seafood shines in unusual pairings such as salmon with chorizo sausage, and conger eel with olives. Tartare of Chilean abalone, the area's top-shelf catch, is a decadent start. Portions are generous, but be sure to save room for a mousse of the much-prized lúcuma fruit (entrées, $10–$16).
