A rather nice place, good service, well presented dishes, reasonable prices. BUT... I keep on making the same error when abroad: taste seafood. Why an error? Because out of the Mediterranean (and probably also out of the tropics, but I do not have any experience on that) fresh seafood quite simply does not exist. They generally serve frozen seafood. As...

The waiters are polite and patient. On both occasions we went in as part of a large group. They catered for us well, promptly with a wide selection of excellent food to choose from. A Block back from the Promenade. Two floors, plenty of seating. Open till late. Popular. Try and book early evening

This restaurant was almost full but we were given a table nevertheless. Service was very, very slow. We waited at least half an hour to order our food and drinks, and were there for almost 3 hours simply because everything was so slow. My husband and daughter were satisfied with the steaks they ordered – although they looked a little... More

It is definitely the greatest place to have dinner. The great and unexpected combination of service and tasty food. The place is quite crowded and we suggest to make a reservation before. You will feel that you visited some local restaurant where the taste of food is on the first place and staff really care about you, don't be afraid... More

Very disappointing seafood experience. My wife ordered the prawns (as per the English menu translation) but got a bunch of small previously frozen shrimp. My seafood stew was way overcooked and rubbery. Portions were so small we had to go elsewhere to eat afterward!

We ate dinner here and was impressed by the extensive menu. You could eat everything from an omelette to a seafood stew. I ordered the rice with shrimp and it came out like a paella with a warm plate and was the tastiest item of the five our family ordered. One of my children was sick and had an accident... More

The chicken and garlic (brown) sauce, with the round fried potatoes on the side, was one of the best dishes I had in all of Argentina. I wish I could remember the exact name!

My fiancée and I had dinner after whale watching in Puerto Madryn. There was a small queue when we arrived but it was worth waiting to get in. The food was amazing, loved the fresh seafood and generous servings. I'd recommend the chocolate volcano for dessert.

it was ok, but not good. It was very much a fast, rushed, not friendly service, bread was hard, starter was ok, but expected a little bit more from this "highly recommended" place; I had mejillones as a starter; the main dish, a pasta was not tasty, pitty so, the place is nice and was crowded, but the food did...

The place is quite nice. A very good value for money. Quantity and Quality is good. Be there shortly before 8 pm otherwise the place is packed a couple of minutes later. Our waiter was a little bit confused but not a big deal. To our surprise the dishes were served quite quickly after ordering but anyhow. Overall good night... More
