Great place for an inexpensive seafood feast, basic rustic interiors with waiters that depending on their mood that day vary from spectacular to the distinctively sub-par. Even though they have meats on the menu as well the seafood is the belle of the ball in this place with my favorite being... read more

Went here early about 8:30 pm. Crowded, noisy and not very attractive space. Service aloof and slow. Had shrimp cocktail with what we're probably frozen shrimp drowning in mayonnaise dressing. Then had white salmon steak which was drowning in sauce and over cooked. Would not recommend. I realize the server education is lacking in Patagonia but they could at least... More

There nothing too wrong with the Nautico, but definitely nothing outstandingly right either. It is a place that fulfills its role of feeding you with harmless food in a week-attended charmless dining room, but not much more than that.

If you want to eat fresh and good fish dishes, this is the place to go! Additionally you find there a big choice of Argentinian vines at reasonable prices!

We got there early in order to avoid the wait and were able to get a table straight away. The food was as great as the service, we had a very nice waiter. I had a lenguado al roquefort, which i deeply recommend. My boyfriend was quite disappointed by his entrecôte so I guess meat are not their speciality.

We´ve heard that it was the best place for eating seafood. It was nice, but maybe overrated. When you have a good time (let´s say good service/fine food/ good place... and of course, company) you dont care about prices, but in this particular occasion I´ve felt it was expensive. Service was slow (many people coming and not enough staff), food... More

Lots of ambiance. This place gets full quickly so go in time. Food was nice and so was the service. They were fast ( probably wanted to get us out to fill with new customers) but we felt good with it. I had praws in garlic. They were more schrimps but very tasty. My partner had prawns milanese style. Very... More

This may be actually a bit of a tourist type place, however, the fish was first class and the price was middle of the road. They have a good selection of Malbecs, and did I mention the fish was quite good?
