Aleli at Hotel Arrebol is less of a restaurant and more of a celebration in outdoor cooking. The family matriarch, Patricia Jürgens, oversees the kitchen, which specializes in Cordero al Palo (spit-roasted lamb) and Curanto (mounds of seafood cooked in a fire pit)—not to mention roasted purple potatoes, the ever-present milcao potato cake, chorizo, and chimichurri. The hotel restaurant caters to larger groups, whose members can eat hearty, rustic fare for a mere $35 a head. Near the shores of Lake Llanquihue and at the base of the towering Andes, a meal at Aleli is a one-of-a-kind experience: for a night, you’re adopted into a large Chilean family and fed a mother’s honest food until you burst.

Recommended Dishes:
  • Cordero al Palo: Spit-roasted Lamb with Chimichurri
