Packed, packed, packed. Too many tables, too many people. Fast food. I did not like the surrondings either. I would not come back but my higher expectations are the main reason. Anyways, big portions and good price.

If you are fortunate enough to come here, GET THE CORDERO PATAGONICO! It's soooo good and the rosemary sauce that comes with it compliments it PERFECTLY. This is the only restaurant in Argentina that I've been to where the side salad size doesn't make me want to weep, being that I love a good dose of veggies. The waiters and... More

First of all let me mention this is not a glitzy 5 star establishment for all you flashy folks - this is a friends / family style restaurant with incredibly (yet basic) cuisine at a serious bargain price, with gr8 views! We were walking around asking locals for a nice cheap place and they all sang "La Fonda" before we... More

Food is very good, waiters are helpful. Environment is friendly. Milanesa is a must for foreigns. It is huge and well prepared. Enpanadas are delicious. It is away from tourist spot but is very busy.

Locals flock to this restaurant, located somewhat off the beaten track but still close enough to reach on foot from the Bariloche Civic Centre (11 blocks). Most order the dish of the day (when we went it was lentil stew) or

It's recommended by a lot of locals. This place is a must; it's where the locals go for lunch and dinner. The service is excellent, and they offer a good variety of dishes. Highly recommended

This place came in recommended by the first person we met in Bariloche. He said this place was a must, it's where the locals go to eat. We are glad to have followed his advise. Place opened at 8pm, and we arrive at 8:30 and got seated quickly. 15 minutes later the place was packed and people stood outside waiting... More

When traveling in Bariloche food can be expensive, but at La Fonda del Tio the food is delicious, large portions and a great price! We went there for dinner and wanted to try the Milanesa so we both ordered it and they said "no no no, you need to order one as they are so big!" 1 milanesa napolitana fed... More

We had a great meal, ravioli bolognese and colita de cuadril, generous and tasty. Decided to try the house wine, huge mistake, it was undrinkable, tasted like petrol. Other than that, however, it was a fun experience, very generous portions, good food. Great restaurant away from the tourist trail. Fun atmosphere, excellent value.
