Nice, great atmosphere, excellent service and the food is to die for. A must if in town. The menu is based on local traditional dishes, mostly meat, but a great choice of fish too. The place is rather small, so reservations are in hand. Don't think twice whther to go or not if in San Martín.

Excellent food and price more than fair. Besides that, very cozy and refined atmosphere. All the pastas are very good!

I went to Doña Quela for lunch, the day I arrived to San Martin de los Andes, upon a recommendation from the hotel where I stayed. The building and atmosphere were both very nice. The waiter very kind and helpful. The pasta was good.

Food was fine, I did not think was great, comparing to other places in SMA or la angostura or Bariloche. Service was really bad. The waiter was sort of pushy in telling us what to order. She brought the wrong dish, when I indicated the mistake, she changed it, but there was not a single "I'm sorry" or "our mistake"... More

We ate here on our 2nd night in San Martin. The previous day we had a pizza at a resto on the lake and it was so huge we didn't eat an evening meal - just had icecream! Our B&B (Casa de Eugenia - yet to write review but it's coming!), recommended Dona Quela and they were right! Lovely interior... More

The service was friendly and efficient. However, our grilled trout was very overcooked although the flavor was good. Maybe the chef just had a bad night.

This was by far our favorite place in San Martin. Charming ambiance, well-prepared food and really excellent service made this a stand-out.

We went to Dona Quela in November 2013. The food was excellent, staff was really friendly and quick. We also liked the atmosphere with live music. One of the thing that completely surprised us was at the moment we wanted to pay the bill we realised there was a mistake, when we told the waiter he corrected the error and... More
