Despite being only the second night in Santiago, there's an excellent chance this will be the best meal had.

Update: August 6, 2011
With only two nights left for me in Santiago, and 1 for the person accompanying me on this Santiago trip, we opted to pass on exploring another seafood restaurant in favor of something we knew an liked. So it was back to Aqui Esta Coco for a final meal.
This time I had the Corvina in a butter and caper sauce with quinoa roma (photo below) and she had the seafood risotto. Afterwards, we shared a chestnut Crème brûlée.
