I visited Dona Quela for dinner. My waiter was very helpful with suggestions and steered me towards the venison ravioli with the mushroom cream sauce. The dish was excellent! The restaurant is nicely appointed in the first floor of an old hotel. I would definitely go back.

The place had a very nice ambiance, it was the oldest hotel in town more than 100 years ago and still maintain the feeling of old times. I got the trout and was great just grilled.

This week we went to dinner at Doña Quela, I had been some time back and I was very nicely surprised. The service was excellent and food delicious. The setting is specially lovely as they have kept the old restaurant and style. It is one of the oldest buildings and restaurants in San Martín de los Andes dating back to... More

We found the food excellent and the service good - despite the fact that we were in a large group. There was a reasonable choice of dishes for vegetarians. Quite pricey but good value and a nice atmosphere.

My wife and I ate here based on TripAdvisor's recommendation. We thought the service and food didn't match our expectations. It was overpriced and disappointing. Just another tourist rip off, was our conclusion.

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.
