Le Bistrot: Excellent French Dining in Santiago, Chile

When traveling internationally, I often have to put aside my regular food tools that are US or Europe based like Yelp, MenuPages, etc. So when in need of a helpful food tool, it sometimes requires using the TripAdvisor iPhone app.

So when TripAdvisor had over 600 reviews for Le Bistrot and ranked it the #1 restaurant in all of Santiago, Chile, I figured we had to give it a shot. Growing up eating French food as a child, the cuisine is close to my heart. So I usually make sure I'm eating only the best French fare as to not be disappointed.

At Le Bistrot, I was not disappointed.

The meal consisted of one of my favorites, Beef Burgundy, with a fantastic escargot to start. Was actually surprised at the number of escargot included. Each little segment of the plate included 3-4 rather than the typical single snail serving...say that 5 times fast. We also a filet mignon in a roquefort sauce.

Classic escargot and garlic from Le Bistrot, in Santiago, Chile, currently ranked #1 overall restaurant in Santiago on Tripadvisor. [Escargots à l’alsacienne
