It has a great crew, that combines perfectly with a nice ambience and a really good food. It has a good variety of wines. In a few words a good place to have a great dinner.

We came across Ku having checked out Dona Quela which is almost next door. Dona Quela looked a bit starchy to our eyes with its pristine linen and the server in his "garcon" apron. Ku in contrast is a busy, hot, friendly place which cooks up very good beef, pork and chicken over the fire. We ate here on consecutive... More

Dinner for 4 on a cold night! It was great! The place is small and fills up fast so get there a bit early. It is easy to do since the locals dine after 10pm! The wood burning fire is located inside the restaurant, and the meat is grilled on order. The meat was good, and the portions were perfect!... More

Not much to say, I had the buffalo steak and it was amazingly awesome! I actually feel the need to go back to south Argentina just to have their steak again...

We had the best steak we ate in Argentina at Ku, and that's saying a lot. Portions are "Argentinian sized", so two of us shared a steak, chorizo, salad and potatoes, resulting in the perfect amount of food. The atmosphere was great, the waiter attentive and helpful with a great wine recommendation in the price range we gave him.

Food was perfect, so was the wine... Good service, even in a busy day. No complains at all. Coffee, and check! Please.

Ku was recommended to us: best lomo in town! We made a reservation and were really astonished when the water came back from the kitchen with the announcement: no steak today! The rest of the food was OK……..

We had our best meal in this restaurant when we were in San Martin de Los Andes. The steak was done to absolute perfection and was large enough to share as were the grilled vegetables. An excellent wine selection. The decor and ambience is terrific. Be sure to dine here! Pat C Ontario, Canada

We had dinner at KU. We ordered three deer stakes and a trout. It took ages for the dishes to arrive and then, they were cold. The deer with curry and the trout were bland, tasteless. My son ordered a scotch and it took them ten minutes to tell us that they had run out of it.

Still being used to the prices of other parts of Argentina and to the excellent food in Bariloche, it is hard coming to San Martin. Most places are a bit more expensive and the food is not a lot better per se. We had dinner at Ku the first night of our stay here and it turned out to be... More
